Introduction.

If this is your first year celebrating Juneteenth, welcome! Open arms, it’s all love. We have a short list of Blackity-Black-Black, empowering, uplifting, and enraging music, made by US, for US. 

Also, as part of our Juneteenth celebration, we launched the Bought Black Initiative. We’re giving away Black-owned products to consumers that tell us how they’ve #boughtblack this month. If you’ve #boughtblack within the last 30 days, just submit your receipt here and you’re entered into the drawing. 

Also, if you like our content, take it with you wherever you go by downloading The Black Wallet app. Every feature available on our website, plus local event listings and a Black business directory that shows you the Black businesses nearest your location!

Black Owned

Trinidad James

Trinidad James challenged himself to live a Black-owned life and it became the inspiration for this empowerment jam. Also, we love the 90s “real hip-hop” feel.

I Can’t Breathe

H.E.R.

Such a soulful way to express current events, while they are currently happening. We’re pretty sure some of these videos and images were literally captured yesterday. 

Black

Buddy ft. A$AP Ferg

Is there any other song over the last couple of year that makes you feel more Black? This song is the official Juneteenth anthem as far as we’re concerned.

The Bigger Picture

Lil’ Baby

Leading the next generation in empowerment, recording his video by actively being on the ground.

Feel The Vibe

BJ The Chicago Kid ft. Anderson Paak

This isn’t quite the same mood as the other songs on this list, but it has every right to be here. It’s a celebration of Black family and today’s a holiday, so reminisce on all the best things about family reunions and cookouts.

Nina

Rapsody

Rapsody is nothing short of phenomenal and provides empowerment to Black women, as is much deserved.

Lockdown

Anderson Paak

Leave it to Anderson to put a mellow spin on our pain. Only he could make us cry and relax with the same notes.

FTP

YG

The West Coast has always been known for being unapologetic about their relationship with the police. Warning: very real…but it’s vulgar.

Lift Every Vice & Sing

Roland Carter

Now, we could have pulled the traditional version of this song, but we didn’t think it would hurt to keep it current while also highlighting the variety of our sound with Black opera singers.

Businesses & Events

Our mobile app has a location-based directory, so you can support your favorite Black-owned businesses, find local events, and earn rewards for buying Black.
