Last year, as part of Billboard's Black History Month celebration, we asked Black artists spanning all genres to compile unique playlists exclusive to Billboard's Spotify account. Everyone from Normani and Khalid to DJ Premier and Rapsody shared tracks that represented their love for the culture across the diaspora -- from childhood favorites to songs that make them feel free. Today, Cee Lo Green and producer Salaam Remi kickoff our 2020 edition with their motivational playlist.
"Ceelo and I chose these songs based on music we grew up on," says Remi. "I don't pick a month to be Black in America. This playlist is only a fraction. These are songs that we grew up on that helped us keep our heads up and maintain to this day."
