Xtina’s Musics of the year 2016

I listened to a lot of Chance the Rapper this year. Like, I maybe listened to Chance the Rapper’s Coloring Book more than I washed my hair, which isn’t hard to beat. You get my point. Ben, my son, really loves the first song, “All We Got.” 

I started the year off listening to a lot of hip hop, but I also listened to a lot of indie rock, whatever that is.  I didn’t spend a lot of time writing about any of it, but I assure you that I was listening to music. I promise you. Anyway, I have included a list of my favorite albums and my favorite songs. I typically forgo including songs on my best songs list from artists whose albums I included on my best albums list. However, I did have to include a few Chance songs because that is really all I listened to.

Happy listening!
