This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Valdosta chapter.

It can be a stressful task to create the perfect playlist. Music can enhance any event or moment and things are also much more fluent while music is playing. The question is, which vibe are you going for? 

We all need that alone time to space out and let our thoughts flow. Here is the perfect playlist for meditation and tuning into your higher self:


  1. I. Flight of the Navigator  – Childish Gambino
  2. Find Your Wings – Tyler, the Creator ft Roy Ayers, Syd, Kali Uchis

  7. Worn – Corbin (Spooky Black)
  8. Wednesday Night Interlude – Drake ft PARTYNEXTDOOR

Songs with a prominent message are usually hard to come across, but they stick around forever. These songs provide insight and answers to questions we as humans all have. A lot of times the message relates to overcoming life struggles, battles within, and bettering the life we live. When you need to hear positive words, here is the perfect playlist:

  9.  Blessed – Kendrick Lamar ft Schoolboy Q

Let’s be honest, we all have those mornings where we question how much further we can go. All you need is a little push. For those mornings you feel glued to the bed, here is the perfect playlist:
