WHO ALL OVER THERE?!?!

This past weekend, while most (if not all of us) where practicing social distancing, we were summoned together for one of the biggest parties I had ever been blessed to be apart of. There was no cover, no line, celebs were sending bottomless drinks from an open bar to the all the attendees, and er'bdy was in VIP. DJ D-Nice hosted a Saturday night Instagram live party - 9 hours of the best blend of R&B, Soul, Hip-Hop, African, and Caribbean beats.

I woke up Sunday morning to see this whole event was trending and I had missed it.

At that moment I vowed, I was going to park myself at the velvet rope until the doors to Club Quarantine opened! I didn't have to wait too long. The live recording from Saturday was still available for viewing and I wore my knees out dancing all over my damn kitchen until the D-Nice started the next set a little after 5:00 PM, est. from his kitchen.

Within 15 minutes, there was 90,000 people streaming and begging Mark Zuckerberg to not shut the party down. We were connected, united, in solidarity amid uncertainty, all pledging to curb COVID-19 by staying indoors. It was literally the biggest party the world had ever seen on the social media platform. By 10:00PM est., there were well over 105K and the DJ himself, ammased over 1 million followers, having roughly 200,000 followers prior to the day party he entitled "Homeschool".
