At Black Girl Magic headquarters, senior editors Cori Murray (@corimurray), Charli Penn (@ManWifeDog) and Yolanda Sangweni (@YoliZama) host ESSENCE’s podcast Yes, Girl! Every episode features interviews with celebrities, politicos, and influencers—plus unfiltered “Tea for the Week” discussions on pop culture, love and relationships, race, news and business. Basically, uplifting everybody who’s taking Black culture a little higher.
Cori Murray and Yolanda Sangweni laugh it up with Niecy Nash, who we’ve adored since her days on Reno 911!, Clean House and Soul Man. Niecy tells us about her upcoming dramedy Claws, befriending Karrueche Tran, laughing through grief and meeting her husband at a party (yes, there’s love in the club).
After that, Charli Penn and Beyoncé’s dance captain Ashley Everett talk about how Ashley’s man put a ring on it with a surprise engagement on The Formation Tour.
