While I was listening to one of my friends song playlists, I came across an old school Erykah Badu song "On&On", and I swear it took me back to 97' riding in my moms old school hyundai on the way to school bumping Baduizm. I remembered first hearing that single and thinking that it was so different from the other types of music that was popular during that time (rap, pop, r&b). Each song from that album told a story of her personal philosophies about life . And to this day, I still love that album the best. It's just so smooth and laid back, that each song just coasts into another. It is definitely what I like to call "chill music".
