I’ve blogged about ‘Insecure’ before, but I wanted to share one of my favorite parts of the series with y’all today. Issa and her team are absolute geniuses. The show is relatable, deals with real issues and entertains us one 30 minute episode at a time.
We’re in the middle of season two and I’m already dreading the fact that it’s wrapping up in three short weeks. These past two seasons have taken us on all kinds of emotional roller coasters with Issa and Lawrence’s relationship, Molly and her guys and unfair treatment at work and everything else under the sun. There’s a character on this show for everyone and I love how inclusive it is.
Now to the star of this show, the music! I’m not sure who the musical director is but they earn their check every episode. These mixes are perfectly curated and fit each scene. I’ve seen a few playlists floating around Spotify, but I wanted to share the official Spotify one with y’all today as well as their channel.
The Spotify playlist is a mix of all of the songs that have been featured on the show thus far. It’s a little over 3 hours and features artists like SZA, The Gap Band, Jidenna (who was actually featured as one of Molly’s love interests last season) and Jazmine Sullivan to name a few. It features the title track that Jazmine and Bryson Tiller did for season 2 and that’s a song I’ve been bumping regularly for the past two weeks. Jazmine’s voice is like buttah.
The Insecure user channel breaks each episode up individually and is perfect for when you’re trying to figure out what was playing during a specific scene or the credits. I saw that question asked quite a few times on Twitter after Sunday’s episode went off. One of the things I love about the show’s profile page is that each playlist’s artwork is a screengrab from that episode. So there’s eye candy like Daniel and Dro from this season and heartwarming pictures of Issa and Lawrence cuddled up last season.
I suggest following both of them, there’s no telling if Spotify is going to continue updating their curated list but we know that there will be a new playlist for each episode added on the user channel.
