Written by on August 18, 2023

(WARNING: Spoilers for this week’s The Chi episode will be found below.)

This week on The Chi, it’s time to party! Emmett and Keisha went through with the purchase of their new home, and to celebrate, they threw a house party and invited friends, both new and old, to come by. There’s a lot of dancing and good food, but also plenty of tense moments as well in this episode. Bakari and Lynae get into an argument about the former’s work with Douda, Nina is frustrated with her kids’ current relationship with her, Victor and Douda still don’t see eye to eye, Tiffany gets into an argument with Emmett and Keisha after EJ uses a cuss word, and a gift from Douda to Emmett leads to a tense moment between Douda and Darnell. Despite this all, there are plenty of good moments as well. Victor and Fatima take a big step forward in their relationship and Papa’s patience with Kenya seems to be paying off.

The aforementioned events in the third episode of Showtime’s The Chi season six, titled “House Party,” are soundtracked by songs that help to accentuate the emotions behind each scene. You can find a list of them below as well as details about the scenes that the records played behind.

That changes when they both realize that they both had Emmett’s housewarming as their next stop.

Gavin Turek’s “The Distance” plays around the 14:15 mark as Keisha’s mom Nina and stepmom Dre give her an air fryer as a gift for her new house with Emmett. This then turns into a conversation where Nina expresses concerns about Keisha’s decision to get a house with Emmett, despite them not being married yet. Nina also expresses her frustration over her current relationship with her kids as both Keisha and Kevin seem a bit distant from her.

Ossaiofficial — “Tik Tok”

This song plays around the 21:13 mark when Rob and Nuk are outside smoking and talking. Rob offers Nuk some of his new weed, and Nuk approves of it and even inquires about where he got it from. Rob keeps the info close to himself as he assumes that Nuk is hiding information about Q’s death.

Jai’Len Josey — “Take Me Higher”

We hear this record around the 23:09 mark as the party begins at Emmett and Keisha’s house.

We hear this song around the 46:25 mark as Rob and Tiffany are driving home with EJ in the backseat after an argument with Keisha and Emmett. The couple originally plays a rap song during their ride, but when Tiffany sees EJ bobbing his head to it, she changes it to this Brian McKnight Jr. record.

SheGoHard — “Sleep”

This track plays during the closing credits after Emmett discovers that the gun that Douda gifted him is missing from the drawer in his nightstand. He panics, but quickly gets himself together as he realizes that Keisha did not know about the gun and he wants to keep it that way.
