As the beautiful Betty Wright once said, 'Grown folks music. Put the children to bed.' This mambo is marshmellow-sweet rare groove, and it's being served to you with a real sense of alegría.
This is a playlist for cooking, cleaning, cruising down the street on a steamy night. This is a playlist for having sweat-studded, soul-expanding sex with someone who makes you tingle in every way that counts. And this is a playlist for dancing/ dancing/ dancing until your heart is beating in your mouth, and your mind has melted from each sizzling lick.
May you groove to this good-good noise, beautiful reader, which is to say, may you always groove to the heights of your own supple imagination.
