Nicki Loves Music



Nicki Loves Music!

Music is a form of self-care for me. As I continue to celebrate my 45th birthday I am feeling quite nostalgic so I have decided to share my 45 favorite songs of all times with you.

My current musical preference is gospel and ‘You Are The Living Word’ by Fred Hammond is my favorite gospel song of ALL time.  As a teen, I danced to ‘Girls Just Want To Have Fun’ by Cyndi Lauper and ‘Material Girl’ by Madonna but my true musical love is the R&B and hip hop of the 80’s and 90’s – my formative years.  My favorite 45 songs are the songs I grew up on – both literally and figuratively.

  1. Candy Girl – New Edition (Candy Girl began a life long love for my favorite group)
  2. I’m Bad – LL Cool J
  3. Ya Cold Wanna Be With Me – U.F.T.O.
