For the week leading up to the inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump, Billboard asked the hosts of some of cable news' most-watched shows to put together and share their inauguration playlists: their personal soundtracks for the Jan. 20 ceremony and the next four years. The first playlist comes courtesy of Joy Reid, the host of MSNBC's AM Joy.
1. “Rise Up” by Andra Day: I predict the next four years will be marked by tremendous (and let’s face it, risky, given who's headed to the attorney general’s office) activism: by women, people of color, LGBT Americans and people of the Muslim faith -- plus those of other religious faiths or no religious faith, who have vowed to defend them against the incoming administration. Andra Day created a masterpiece of an album, Cheers to the Fall, that is full of songs of freedom and fight, with “Rise Up” being the most powerful. It’s a fight song coming from the heart of a woman of color.
