NEW YORK, Oct. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Sony Music Entertainment celebrates some of the biggest hits of the 90's with the premiere of My 90s Playlist, a new podcast exploring some of the decade's most iconic songs and groundbreaking artists. The show's first episode features a deep dive into the history of hit R&B group TLC and the making of their chart-topping single "No Scrubs."
Hosted by music and pop culture enthusiasts Tracy Clayton and Akoto Ofori-Atta and produced by Multitude, My 90s Playlist explores the not-so-distant past and reveals never-before-heard details about nine of the 90's biggest hits, including songs from Mariah Carey, Outkast, Ricky Martin, Natalie Imbruglia, Celine Dion, Ginuwine, A Tribe Called Quest, and Backstreet Boys. Each week, Clayton and Ofori-Atta will test their music knowledge and break down the passion we all have for the hits of the 90s: what made our favorite songs so popular and why we are so nostalgic for them?
Clayton and Ofori-Atta said, "So much of what's happening in the pop culture and music landscape today is influenced by the music of the 90s. This show is all about revisiting and celebrating the incredible hits that have shaped our culture, and we hope that each episode brings people joy, makes them laugh, and teaches them something new about these iconic hits and the people who created them."
Episode 1: "No Scrubs" by TLC
The first track of the mixtape has to be a banger, get the energy up, and set the tone for the rest of the mix. We had to start ours with a song so good they had to keep the rap verse off the radio, and so pointed a bunch of guys immediately made a rebuttal track. It's "No Scrubs!"
My 90s Playlist is produced by Multitude. The show's lead producer is Eric Silver, editor is Brandon Grugle, and executive producers are Tracy Clayton and Amanda McLoughlin. For more information on My 90s Playlist and all other Sony Podcast shows, follow @SonyPodcasts on Twitter and Instagram.
