Go DJ – Kaytranada, SiR

Firstly, to start off our Fashion Week playlist, we have “Go DJ” by Kaytranada featuring SiR.

Pure/Honey – Beyonce

What is a runway without Beyonce’s “Renaissance” album? “Pure/Honey” embodies the elements of the LGBTQIA+ community’s ballroom scene. During the balls, performers vogue, wack, tut, and strut for fashion categories to win trophies for their houses. This song will transport you to one of the balls during your daily routine. Therefore, this funky groove with its brass beats will have your walk drip with pure honey! Check out the song here!

For a Fool – Storm Queen

Play some house music in your house! Stor Queen is an extension of Morgan Geist, a music producer that was active from 1994 in Detroit, Michigan. During the 1990’s and 2000’s, Geist has worked with musicians associated with Earth, Wind, and Fire and Charlie Wilson. Then, this single is part of his comeback to the music scene after an eight-year hiatus in 2021, “For A Fool”. The house track has an addictive baseline and amazing vocalist to continue your runway journey. Check out this single here!

Escapism – RAYE, 070 Shake

Have you ever experienced an escapism? “Escapism” is a popular single that singer RAYE and 070 Shake have released in 2023. The song is part of RAYE’s debut album, “My 21st Century Blues.” Then, inspired by Amy Winehouse, RAYE’s low register and emotional deliverance of the lyrics creates a story of someone going through unhealthy coping mechanisms after a breakup. Lastly, if you want a storyline for your runway, this is a great addition! Check out the song here!

Say Yes – TOKiMONSTA, VanJess

Want a classic rendition of “Say Yes”? “Say Yes” is originally sung by the duo called Floetry in 2002.

Then, the Weeknd collaborates with Playboi Carti and pop legend Madonna to talk about a young celebrity who calls the paparazzi to gain attention to continue her deceptive image. Then, the song is supposed to reflect on Lily Rose Depp’s character in the show: a young celebrity with a false identity to the public.
