I want to thank Cori Murray, Rachaell Davis and the rest of the team for allowing me this chance to do something different when it comes to creating playlists and showcase veteran and rising artists and music that you need to add to your rotation. In a year that often stood still, the music never stopped. With that in mind, yours truly wants to thank you on day 1 of alongside a venerable icon, Mr. Charlie Wilson. My favorite musical uncle outside of Snoop Dogg and I select songs full of gratitude for the purpose of connecting you all to our greatest joy — the love of music. Happy New Year to you all, may you and yours stay safe and healthy, and I personally raise my glass to all you beautifully melanated people to toast to your continued blessings as we embark on another revolution around the sun. Charlie, last name Wilson, has been a consummate performer and cherished personality in our lives since before many of us were born. Now, we mostly connect virtually, but their stories and their love for me and my music is what keeps me going. No matter what life throws at me I must always remember that I am blessed.
