Beyoncé may run the world, but there are women like Mjeema Pickett who are just as in charge. Have you ever wondered who is the mastermind behind the R&B playlists? Well, look no further. For those who aren't familiar, Pickett is Spotify's Global Programming Head of R&B/Soul.

Interestingly enough, the DMV native's rise in the industry came from a childhood passion for R&B music that resulted in a fun activity for Pickett: creating mixtapes for family and friends in her spare time. As her career grew, she found a way to turn her pastime into a position that not only empowers artists but moves people of all genders, ages, and walks of life one playlist at a time.

Check out our Women's History Month feature on the inspirational and passionate Ms. Mjeema Pickett.
