The Nineties are having a moment in 2020 as another generation of young adults reaches for a dose of nostalgia about the not-so-distant-past. Sony Music Entertainment sees an opening in that and it is digging into its own catalog for the company’s first music-focused series that will celebrate the decade’s music and artists.
Hosted by music and pop culture enthusiasts Tracy Clayton and Akoto Ofori-Atta and produced by Multitude, My 90s Playlist will explore the decade’s music including sharing some never-before-heard details about nine of the ’90s biggest hits, including songs from Mariah Carey, Outkast, Ricky Martin, Natalie Imbruglia, Celine Dion, Ginuwine, A Tribe Called Quest and Backstreet Boys. The first episode is about the TLC hit “No Scrubs.”
“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,” Clayton and Ofori-Atta said in a joint statement.
My 90s Playlist is produced by Multitude, the Brooklyn-based independent podcast collective and production company. The show’s lead producer is Eric Silver, editor is Brandon Grugle and executive producers are Clayton and Amanda McLoughlin.
