Bria Felicien is one of the brightest stars covering women’s sports today. In the latest episode of “Players of the New School,” she breaks down the 2020 WNBA teams as R&B albums.
Music and basketball go together like peanut butter and jelly. The world hasn’t been the same since Kurtis Blow’s infamously-titled hit, “Basketball.” Atlanta writer, podcaster and audiophile Bria Felicien sat down with Jasmine Baker in a two-part episode of “Players of the New School.” The up-and-coming journalist has a unique approach to sports, recently publishing an R&B album thread for NWSL teams.
The #NWSL is supposed to return tomorrow. I want more people to watch with me.
To prepare, I humbly present… NWSL teams as R&B albums: https://t.co/84tIa36PZ6

The COVID-19 season was considered in the team listings. Felicien decided to approach the list pre-opt-outs. The 2020 WNBA Draft presented a loaded class as they experience first “bubble” season in league history. Many will be streaming hours upon hours of music this summer to pass the time. Felicien dishes a few albums you can check out all summer!
The teams mentioned in the episode are listed with a link to their respective albums:
- Washington Mystics
- Phoenix Mercury
- Las Vegas Aces
- New York Liberty
- Indiana Fever
- Los Angeles Sparks
- Seattle Storm
Join Baker and Felicien as they delve into the WNBA’s ongoing fight for social justice and then discuss which R&B album best describes each WNBA team.
