Thank You from RESPECT. Mag’s Senior Editor

2016 has been quite the year. Plenty of tough times; way too many to count, actually. But throughout it all the music of 2016 kept us sane. From powerful tracks like “Black America Again” by Common to Beyonce’s “Freedom” to Chance’s “Blessings,” we’ve had our fair share of inspiration. And of course, we also had some of the most entertaining tracks to lighten up the mood. Let’s just say “Bad and Boujee” and “Black Beatles” will NOT be leaving with 2016. Whatever your interest, there was something for you to listen to. And as we prepare for 2017 and what is to come, we’re confident in saying that there will be music that move you spiritually and others that’ll move you physically.

With that being said, RESPECT. will continue to provide readers with that music that’ll help you get through the tough times along with the songs that make you want to go out and have a good time. 2016 was one hell of a year but RESPECT. is honored that we were here to ride that wave with y’all. We appreciate all the support/feedback we’ve received from our readers and look forward to evolving.

2017, we’re ready for you!
