Bruin Beats: Delta Sigma Theta President Ameshia Forrest
The Vision has teamed up with leaders from organizations across campus to bring you weekly Spotify playlists from students and staff.
For today’s installment, President of the Tau Nu Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Ameshia Forrest shared 10 of her favorite songs with the Vision.
This playlist ranges from R&B, rap and gospel, and comes from different decades. You will find that most of them are uplifting and have a positive vibe. Others are fun and are likely to put you in a dancing mood. The rest are chill and calming. Either way, they reflect my personality and are also most likely to get me through hours of studying!
HUMBLE – Kendrick Lamar: The name of the song pretty much speaks for itself. It reminds me to love my natural beauty, appreciate where I come from and to remain humble when I reach success.
Way Back – TLC: I have always loved this 90s group and their new song still has that same fun 90s vibe to it. It is also one that I dedicate to my best friends because we go way back!
Congratulations – Post Malone Feat. Quavo: This song is inspiring and uplifts my mood whenever I am studying late at night. It makes me think about the day I will graduate and hear everyone tell me congratulations!
Unforgettable – French Montana Feat. Swae Lee: I always get in a mood to dance whenever this comes on. The unforgettable dance challenge that resulted from it is fun and hilarious.
