Are you familiar with the “You Up?” text? If not, let me try to explain:
I’m sure everyone out there understands what it feels like to get a craving in the middle of the night for a late-night snack, right? Well before anything, you check to see if the kitchen is, umm.. “open.” I mean..come on, you can’t just pull up expecting food and it’s not ready or available.
The “You Up” text is what you send for that special someone you’re craving; a polite poke to see if your meal of choice is prepared or not.
With this playlist in mind, I created a sound selection that would fit that particular scenario. I’m telling the story of all the possible thoughts and feelings that go down during a time like this through song. Here you’ll hear these moods in cuts from Trey Songz, Rihanna, Jeremih and more. I know I said I wasn’t R&B smooth in “Rap ‘N Sex,” but I thought I’d slow it down to set the tone for something special.
“You Up?” is perfect for those who are in the mood for a drive-thru, or prefer to enjoy their meal sitting down, or laying down. Whatever, I’m sure you catch my drift. There’s a few new R&B faces featured on this with a couple throwbacks in too.
