Valentine’s Day is approaching and whether you have a special someone or you’re spending it alone, we want you to be able to set the mood and have some great music to enjoy. Love can be a very complicated thing especially when you’re trying to express it to a certain somebody. That’s why we have music that can either direct or lowkey tell your lover how you really feel. Regardless if you like old school tunes or some current hits we’ve got you covered with a few of our personal favorites.
The Queen of Hip-Hop Soul and Wu-Tang’s Method Man hold this classic record for those deep in love, holding each other down through thick and thin. Though this single dropped in 1995 it still creates a smooth love and hip hop mood for couples today. Love isn’t always easy, but it is meant to bring serenity. When the skies are gray there’s someone to rub you on your back and say “baby it’ll be okay.” There are times that you’ll feel like nothing, but that special someone is there to make you feel like you are something.
Kendrick isn’t known to create too many love songs but with this record he just wants love. Who doesn’t want love? Sippin’ bubbly, feelin’ lovely with your significant other is something everyone dreams for. Picture riding in a drop top, cruising down the highway with your lover playing this song. Love is all you see and feel. Expressing your true feelings, realizing you don’t want to spend life without one another, you can buy a big one to prove it. “Don’t got you I got nothing.”
Chris Brown never disappoints when it comes to love songs. Privacy is pretty much self-explanatory. Putting you in the loving mood for you and your partner, privacy is well needed. “We don’t need nobody watching us.” Love is all about connection and getting to know each other. Love is a powerful experience that brings two souls together in a vibrational harmony. ‘Privacy’ helps build that harmony and brings good loving and touching to your relationship. Boom-Shakalaka!
For the men that need a girl to share the dreams that they believe, this is the song for you. Every guy wants a woman that truly understands how to treat a man and that can be all for him. Unfortunately, not everybody can be in a relationship this coming Valentines but that doesn’t have to stop you from looking or dreaming about what you want for your future love. Fellas you want somebody you can trust and build with emotionally, mentally and physically. Love can be a very powerful and life-changing experience. “All men need is a girl to look in their eyes and watch the sunrise, go somewhere to get their minds together and build a love that’ll last forever” (Diddy).
OVO isn’t new to being sentimental. He’s actually one of the best when it comes to getting in tune with his emotions. We all have had a crush on someone that made us feel all mushy and soft inside like we’re back in high school; teenage fever. “Out of body, that’s just how I feel when I’m around you shawty”, Drake explains how it feels to be on cloud nine when we’re around the one we’ve caught feelings for. It really is like an out of body experience because we’re just so happy, that’s pretty much all we know in the moment. We’re so happy we go numb to the feeling. Love is spiritual.
You can’t go wrong with the King of Pop on any occasion. You can dance, bop, moonwalk and just have fun to this upbeat love song. The feeling of finding such a perfect love that’s awesomely so right is an amazing feeling that gives you butterflies and brings all sorts of happiness. The way love makes you feel and act is something that can’t really be explained, you just know you’re overjoyed and hope that the feeling last forever. They say true love comes when you least expect it, so when Michael said, “the rarest love who’d think I’d find, someone like you to call mine” it hits deep.
New Edition made their comeback when their three-part movie premiered on BET. Their single ‘Can You Stand the Rain’ is one of the smoothest, softest, heartfelt songs you can ever play. With being in a relationship there will be tough times but you have to be willing to stick through it. Storms will come, this we know for sure but you have to be able to stand the rain. Men want a woman who will stand by them through the good times and bad times, making sure she’ll always be right there. This is a great song to wake up and kick off your Valentines Day with.
“I want you all to myself, you don’t need nobody else.” When Valentines Day comes around you don’t want anyone else besides your significant other. You want them all to yourself. You don’t want anyone else holding their attention besides you. This song is self-explanatory. It gives smooth, loving vibes and you can’t help but think of whoever it is that has your attention.
If you want to turn up, get white girl wasted, and start having wild thoughts, DJ Khaled, Rihanna, and Bryson Tiller got you covered. Whether you’re spending Valentines Day alone or with your partner, this pop rock song will automatically get you feeling sexy and make you want to dance. This song is guaranteed to bring out your inner-Rihanna and make you feel good!
When you start to feel a certain way about a certain someone you start to question yourself. Have you caught little feelings for this person? Do you like this person? Do you love this person? “Well if it isn’t love why do I feel this way?” Once your mind starts to ponder about this special, your feelings start spiraling, turning into more and you usually have no control over it. You try to deny it but if you were to see this someone with another partner would your feelings be hurt? “Well if it isn’t love why does it hurt so bad?” Love can be confusing, but this song helps explain the feelings and the questions we usually have when we start to like someone.
What’s love without Beyonce in it? With Valentines Day approaching you’re probably smiling out from ear to ear with the plans you and your partner have arranged. A day with love on top! Spending the day with the one you love and the one you need is like running through a field of flowers and forgetting about all the worries in the world. The passion Beyonce gave when she sang this song is the passion that all lovers should have with one another.
Its only right to end with the best artists when creating love music, Boys II Men and Charlie Wilson. Though this song isn’t well known it gives angelic, loving vibes and is a great song that shows your significant other how much you love them. Genuine love is written all over this song. If you need a song to propose to your partner, I personally think this is a perfect song to do so! Love is such a beautiful thing.
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.”- 1 Corinthians 13:4-8
Happy Valentines Day!
