These TV shows know how to curate music.
We’ve reached that middle point of winter when all the holidays have passed and people set into borderline hibernation mode. You get home after work, pass on socializing, and kick back behind your computer screen.
The holdouts to this lifestyle won’t last long. Netflix earnings reached new heights at the end of 2017, and the company plans to inject another $2 billion into their advertising this year. Add to that HBO Go, Hulu, and the classic cable providers— TV will always have its chokehold on audiences worldwide, meanwhile, movies, not so much.
But we’ve also reached a point where audiences hold their television programs to higher standards. Better production, quality storytelling, and diverse voices. One result of this broadened diversity is that the soundtracks of many top shows have begun to reflect music people actually like, and music that a diverse range of people listen to. To that end, we have put together a list of some of the best soundtracks on TV right now, in no particular order.
(Advisory: We’re speaking to the music here… we can’t guarantee the quality of (all) these shows.) Comment to let us know what are some of your favorite TV shows when it comes to a dope ass hip-hop-centric soundtrack.
