7 Late 90s Pop Albums To Get You Through Your Work Day At Home During Quarantine

7 Late '90s Pop Albums To Get You Through Your Workday At Home During Quarantine

Bop through your day and your work with these jams


To be honest, everyone's going through a lot right now. The days seem to blend together and workdays can either go really quickly or really slowly.

It's honestly like that time between Christmas and New Year where no one knows what day it is, but you actually have to work through it and it can be tough.

But here are just a few '90s albums that will help you bop through your workday to not only reminisce on the good times but to also get you through any rough patches.

1. "Backstreet Boys"

This album not only put one of the most popular boy bands on the map, but it made us all fans of the Backstreet Boys after coming out in 1997.

You can actually jam out to songs like "As Long As You Love Me" and "Everybody (Backstreet's Back)" all day long. If you've got someone who is just a f*ck boy, hit them with a "Quit Playing Games With My Heart" throwback and quarantine yourself for a little while until they go away. It works on all levels.

2. "'N Sync"

While we're on the topic of boy bands, 'N Sync's debut album came out in 1997 as well, dividing teenage girls around the world into Backstreet fans or 'N Sync fans.

"I Want You Back" is a great song to get through the day, but then you can flip the switch to "Tearin' Up My Heart" and be jamming along while your microphone is on mute during conference calls.

3. "...Baby One More Time"

The album that put Britney Spears on the map came out just before the turn of the century in 1999 and it was an ultimate mood.

Hello, what girl didn't want to be tapping her pencil in class one minute and singing down the halls the next with a back-up dancing crew that killed it?

This album not only gave us her version of "Baby One More Time" but it killed with "Drive Me Crazy" and slowed it down with "Sometimes" and "From The Bottom Of My Broken Heart." As I mentioned: an ultimate mood.

4. "Christina Aguilera"

Coming out in 1999 as well, Christina Aguilera hit the map and again, teens were divided - team Britney or team Christina.

This album is a little bit of an edgier pop album than compared to the competition, and also a great listen. You can post up at home and jam out to "Genie In A Bottle" or "What A Girl Wants" or "Come On Over" all day.

Plus the vocals are just outstanding.

5. "On The 6"

Hello Jennifer Lopez. Another great album that came out in 1999 and introduced us to one of the most well-known artists of today.

This album is a straight-up dance album with its hits like If "You Had My Love," "Waiting For Tonight" and "Let's Get Loud."

The workday is going to fly by with this one - crank it up!

6. "The Writing's on the Wall"

Destiny's Child gave us Beyonce. Need I say more?

This album was released in 1999 and gave us some female power. Songs like "Bills, Bills, Bills," "Say My Name," "Jumpin' Jumpin'" and so many more graced the world from the album.

You want to hunker down, feel empowered and get work done? Throw on this jam of songs and get. to. work.

7. "Spice"

Speaking of Girl Power - hello Spice Girls! 1996 gave us one of their most, if not their most well-known, album and a whole lot of girl power.

This album will take you back and actually get you on your feet with hits like "Wannabe," "Say You'll Be There," and "2 Become 1."

Having this album meant one thing: having fun. So have some fun with your workday while jamming out to this.

I could probably make this list extremely long and have barely touched the surface with the above.

I didn't even touch on S Club 7, Mandy Moore, 98 Degrees, Mariah Carey, Dream, Ricky Martin, and so many other talents that graced us with their bops in the late '90s, but the above is a great start.

Throw on these old jams and start rocking out because your day just got brighter.

13 Father's Day Shirts Under $30 To Gift The Dad Wearing The Same Two Every Day In Quarantine

You've been begging him to change it up, and now he won't have a choice.

Let's be honest: most of our dads are wearing the same shirts today that they probably wore while changing our diapers and holding our hands as we learned to walk. Sure, we love them for it. But whether you're quarantined with him wearing the same two shirts on rotation every week, or every time you FaceTime him, you know what he'll be wearing before he answers the phone, he needs to add some new items to his wardrobe rotation.

And you know dads — they'll feel guilted into using practically anything you were to give them. But these shirts are sure-fire ways to get him to switch up his wardrobe, and he'll be more than excited to wear each and every one of them. Plus, most of them are under twenty dollars, so no harm in dropping more than a couple in to your cart and letting Dad have his pick of his favorites.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Hollis Tuttle To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

My Boyfriend Has Changed Since Quarantine Began, And I Don't Know What To Do

"All he says is 'I love you,' which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him."

Each week Swoonie B will give her advice on anonymous topics submitted by readers. Want to Ask Swoonie B something related to dating and relationships? Fill out this form here — it's anonymous.

Dear Swoonie B,

My boyfriend and I have been dating for almost a year, which has been the best year of my life (as far as i know). Well we go to different schools and are both very involved in sports and school activities which makes it hard to see each other. During this quarantine it is especially hard. Since we haven't seen each other in over a week things are kind of tense. He won't really talk to me much and I always check in on him to make sure he is doing well and to just see how he is, ya know being a girlfriend. Well apparently that is driving him crazy and I don't understand how. I'm not being controling or clingy, i'm just checking in on him. While this is happening, I also have noticed how he just doesn't really care anymore. I'll leave him paragraphs of sweet love letters to wake up to and I encourage him throughout his day but I just don't get it in return. I love him with all of me and I obviously care about him a lot. Also, I've compared how he talked to me before all of this has happened. He was so sweet and caring, texting me a lot and telling me he loves me and just making sure everything is OK but he doesn't do that anymore. All he says is "I love you," which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him. He is a little stressed at home with trying to find another job to pay for his car, constantly having to do things for his mom, being responsible for his siblings, and managing school. I know thats a lot but im doing a lot too right now and going through a lot of the same stuff he is but It seems to me he just does not care and i don't know what to do. Please help me or give me some advice on what to say, what not to say, what to do, what not to do. Anything at this point will help. Thank you!

If I had a dollar for every time I heard "these are unprecedented times," I'd be rich. But that's because it's true!

Tower 28

On paper, Amy Liu appears to be one of the most intimidating women in the beauty business. Not only did she launch her beauty marketing career at legendary Smashbox Cosmetics, she went on to lead luxury, high-end brands like Kate Somerville and Josie Maran — just to name a few.

But sitting down to meet Liu for the first time in an underground New York bar over a year ago felt like meeting a friend I'd known since childhood. As she walked into the bar in a chic red dress, it was impossible not to feel her immediate warm presence. When she talks about her history as an entrepreneur (and truly, at heart, she always was one), you don't get the sense that she's selling you anything, though with her impeccable taste, I'd use anything that had her glowing review attached to it.

Sixth grade was the year that you were allowed to participate in a school sport. This was what my friends and I had all been waiting for since we started middle school. I had already made the cheer team with my friends, but I had to wait to start that in the winter since we cheered for basketball. I really wanted to have some sort of activity in the fall, but I did not know what to do. Somehow, I decided to run cross country. Not really sure how I decided on a sport where it was quite literally just running. A few of my friends were doing it as well, so I knew it was going to be fun.

Working Out Every Day During Quarantine Helps Me Feel A Sense Of Control

Physical activity helps my mental health in a world that feels uncertain.

Before the pandemic, I exercised a handful of times a week at best. In quarantine, I've been exercising every single day. I don't want this article to be another spiel about how exercise "changed my life," and all the other cliches that health gurus use to convince others to work out more. Rather, I want to reveal that exercise is a tool that works for me because it boosts my mental health when I feel like the world is spiraling out of control.

To say that 2020 has been a bit of a roller coaster is an extreme understatement. Who knew that this decade was going to start off like THIS!? Not me, not you, and not that sweet old lady who lives down the street. One thing is certain though — while the world may be a mess right now, you can still fuel your body with food that keeps you happy and healthy. Thankfully, as we are all spending more time inside, you can get healthy snacks delivered straight to your front door! Amazon has never been more convenient (and tasty).
