Playlist: AAPI Appreciation Part 1!

If you didn’t know, the month of May is Asian-American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month! Or for our fellow Canadian readers, Asian History Month! So, in order to celebrate and appreciate AAPI this in this playlist, here’s a calm, chill vibe playlist featuring some AAPI artists that you may know or not yet know of!

As mentioned above, I made this playlist more on the calm, chill vibe of things, and if you’re wanting songs that are more upbeat… maybe keep an eye out for the next issue (hint hint). From doing a deep dive on Spotify, I found artists that I, myself haven’t heard of until now and hopefully, you found a new artist to listen to as well!

Let us know what you think of the playlist by messaging us on our social media platforms or if you have any song recommendations too!

Why now?

Overachiever Magazine was started by Rehana Paul in October of 2018 to give a platform to all Asian women, non-binary people, and other gender minorities.

Our name is poking fun at the stereotype that all Asians are overachievers, especially Asian women, non-binary people, and other gender minorities. It’s also in recognition of all of us who have had no choice but to be overachievers: managing societal expectations, family obligations, and educational opportunities, all while fighting the patriarchy.

We have grown since then, putting out bimonthly issues (we are contributor powered: apply to write for our next one!), and weekly reviews of culture, and news that is important to us.

You can find announcements, more news, and get to know our staff on social media: give us a follow, and learn how you can get involved today!

We do not claim to speak for all Asian women, non-binary people, and other gender minorities. We are just here to give them a place to speak for themselves.

We hope you’ll join us.
