Takeover Tuesday: Ally Brooke's Dance Party-Inspired Playlist
Welcome back to Takeover Tuesday, where each week Billboard taps chart-topping artists and tastemakers to compile their very own playlist exclusive to Billboard's Spotify account. We give the artists free rein to base the list on whatever subject they choose. The only rule? Make it as creative and unique to them as possible.
Fifth Harmony member Ally Brooke is gearing up to launch her solo career, while also clocking in studio time with the girl group as they work on what will be their third album. And when she's not working on music, Brooke has said she has plans to pursue acting, too.
Somehow still, the vocal powerhouse always leaves time for a feel-good dance party. She's sharing her top picks exclusively with Billboard, and was sure to include everything from recent chart-topping hits like DJ Khaled's "I'm The One" ("The beat and all of the artists on this track make this song POPPIN'") to longtime favorites like Selena's "Baila Esta Cumbia" ("Selena is my angel. This reminds me of home. I always dance to this with my family back in San Antonio!").
Give the full playlist a listen below -- and be sure to read Brooke's fun-filled commentary.
