    • Glad another person agrees on Solange! 😀 Same thing happened to me with Worlasi’s song. Frank Ocean would have been there for sure, he’s an all-time favourite. I just didn’t get round to playing his stuff (which was a crime for me) past one full play of Endless, and I wasn’t even sure if I should add any of it since the songs are woefully short 😭
