Listen: “Be a Proper Lady” by Yola Mezcal

For this month’s Proper playlist, we’re streaming a playlist curated by our friends at YOLA Mezcal, who recently shared an all-new design for their classic mezcal, crafted by an all-female team. 

Their “Be a Proper Lady” playlist is a compilation of female artists, songs that inspire them, and some go-to favorites (including a few tracks famed for later versions, sampled by men). As they put it, “It’s just a reminder that behind every great man, there’s always a great woman!”
