Happy Thursday, readers!
Someone please tell me how it is already the weekend? As the weeks fly by and I get closer and closer to graduation, I live for those weekend nights of getting ready to go out with my best friends. It’s these nights, the nights I count down to starting on Sunday, that I will think back to myself, smile, and laugh about when I am in the scary real world in a few months. Which is why, to prepare for your nights of slapping the bag and dancing on table tops, I am sharing my top five pregame songs.

And to continue to aid your music needs for the weekend, I want to introduce you all to TIDAL! TIDAL, often vocally supported by Kanye, is a global music and entertainment platform. The modern, easy to use music streaming service offers a wide variety of artists, genres, and videos. TIDAL also includes live-streaming, granting uses access to celebrity-only events that Spotify and Pandora users don’t have the option of seeing. How else was I able to watch Kanye, Kim, and the rest of the Kardashian klan at the Yeezy Season three show? Plus, any true Kanye fan knows that one can only hear The Life of Pablo album on TIDAL. Need more incentive to start using TIDAL? Well, I have just that.
TIDAL has partnered with Lil Wayne to promote community service among college students. Sparkle and Shine is joining them, too!
Until February 29th, all undergrad college students at a four-year university can participate in TIDAL’s Social Wave for Change competition. Students must publicly post a photo or video of them completing any type of community service act (such as one participating in QTHON or your school’s version of the dance marathon) on their Instagram page or onto TIDAL’s Facebook wall. In the post, each student must include #TIDALXChange, their school name, and tag a friend.
From there, a panel of judges selected by TIDAL will check out all the submissions to determine the finalists. Finalists will receive a silent disco event for their school. The winner will receive a Lil Wayne concert near his/her school! How cool?! Can you imagine listening to middle-school dance anthem Lollipop in person?
All participants are eligible for a 3-month complimentary subscription to TIDAL.
Find out more on the competition’s FAQ page.
I’d love to see your posts, so make sure to tag @sparkleshinesam on your Instagram posts and @Sparkle and Shine on your Facebook posts.
Enjoy the weekend!
