The inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris is next week, something you probably haven't forgotten on account of all the potential terrorism. Still, if the theme of "unity" still resonates with you, or if you just feel like celebrating the defeat of 45, Issa Rae's Raedio has compiled a 46-track playlist celebrating Biden's big day.
There's the kind of music you'd expect on a playlist representing a 78-year-old president, but there's a bunch of contemporary musicians as well. The Internet is slotted next to Average White Band, Led Zeppelin plays immediately after Burna Boy, and MF DOOM precedes Marlena Shaw (on the Spotify version of the playlist, at least). A fine selection overall, but given the triumphant vibe, they missed an opportunity to include Playboi Carti's "Shoota," imo. Listen below.
