My family will soon welcome a new baby into our household so it only makes sense to dedicate a playlist to songs about kids and/or songs with “baby” in the title. The Root’s weekly playlist is going to be taking a hiatus. Thanks for sleepwalking with us and we’ll see you on the other side (“of the war”; Hamilton references are ALWAYS welcomed in this space).
