That Melanin Though Playlist

Curated By: Girl Tyler

In the words of Rihanna, “All girls rock. Black girls, we just on another level.”  Black women come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and glorious shades. We’re notoriously imitated but no one can duplicate the bold, audacious essence of our existence. Our skin radiates centuries of strength and resilience.

The That Melanin Though Playlist is a celebration of body confidence for Black women.

Whether you’re tall, short, curvy, thin, or even slim thick, embrace every inch of your body. These songs are a declaration of Black femininity, sensuality, and physique. You’re a piece of art. Keep shinning. Never dim your light.
