Listen to Lesli's playlist below!

So, not only has this been my quarantine playlist, but many of these have also been on my pre-show playlist FOREVER. It was impossible to narrow it down to only 10 songs, but these always get me hyped and keep me positive... even in a plague.

1. Ch-Check It Out - Beastie Boys
Ok, really anything by my boys, but this is my fave. Shake Your Rump is a close 2nd. Best lyricists ever. Yeah, I said it. So freaking smart.

2. Rain On Me - Lady Gaga w Ariana Grande
My Queen. Nuff 'said. The entire Chromatica album is fire. FIRE.

3. My Name Is Prince - Prince (...err...symbol thingy)
This was my pre-audition hype song forever. Still use it. Miss him.

4. Boss B*tch - Doja Cat
Ohh this has been getting me THROUGH lately. Take no crap peeps. Stand tall and RULE.

5. Wanna Be Startin' Somethin' - Michael Jackson
I know. Just enjoy the genius of the music. I know. I know.

6. 2 Legit 2 Quit - MC Hammer
Fun fact...he used to be my neighbor. True story. I love this but please know you are required to do the hand signals with it. If you don't know it, learn it.

7. Spice Up Your Life - Spice Girls
I don't need to explain myself.

8. Express Yourself - Madonna
I mean. The G.O.A.T. Empowerment when I need it the most.

9. Mama Said Knock You Out - LL Cool J
Another pre-audition hype song. I can't believe Im giving away my secrets to you. See what the pandemic has done to me?

10. Pop - NSYNC
My loves. Never ceases to put me in a better mood, and who couldn't use that right now?
