Black Music Month 2020 Playlist: Andra Day Calls on Marvin Gaye and Lauryn Hill to Provide ‘Internal Peace’

This year, Black Music Month took a different turn. Because of the horrific deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and more at the hands of police, we at Billboard hope to uplift and empower African Americans during this cloudy and dubious time. Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for the remainder of the month, an artist will provide a playlist designed to remedy the heartaches endured by the Black community.

Today (June 22), singer Andra Day hopes to provide peace to those zapped of energy and in need of mental restoration. From Marvin Gaye to Lauryn Hill, Day whips up a soothing 13-track playlist to help continue the celebration of Black Music Month.

“Whenever I am in the midst of a fight, trials, or in the midst of a paradigm shift I try to focus on the things of the spirit, and protect my internal peace,” says Day. “I try to remember to be grateful for — and celebrate — who we are. It reminds me to fight from a place of clarity.”

Listen to Day’s “Internal Peace” playlist below.
