The Women’s National Basketball Players Association (WNBPA) have recently announced their partnership with Def Jam Recordings. Together, they will promote and celebrate women in both the music and sports industries by releasing a “Bet on Women” playlist that will feature the women artists from the record label.

“The intersection of music and sports has driven our culture, our athletes and the sport they play. We rely on the impact of music to engage the fans, and share life experiences through the ‘conversation’ of music and beats,” said Terri Jackson, Executive Director of the WNBPA. 

The playlist is meant to inspire and motivate listeners through a power walk, spin workout, or even a work-day and includes everyone from Ashanti and Rihanna to Jhené Aiko and Coco Jones.

“Def Jam Recordings is proud to partner with the Women’s National Basketball Player’s Association in celebrating the powerful intersection of music and sports. Together, we will continue to uplift and empower women through the universal language of music,” said LaTrice Burnette, Executive Vice President, Def Jam Recordings/President, 4th & Broadway.

Through this partnership, the WNBPA and Def Jam Recordings will continue to support and uplift all women.
