Sweet Music For V-Day

Whether you’re spending Valentine’s Day with your boo, your homies, or simply by yourself it’s always a good time to turn up some music and enjoy yourself. Don’t worry. I got you with some good ol’ throwbacks tunes to stream on the day of love. Check it out.

Sittin’ Up In My Room – Brandy 

If you happen to have a crush on someone this is definitely the song to stream. Sit up in your room and vibe to this while thinking about that special someone.

I Could Fall In Love – Selena 

For all the lovers, or those who feel like they’re in love, I highly recommend this Selena classic for you and your boo.

Love Affair – UMI

Is it a crush? Or is it more? Either way this song is a catchy bop. Whether you’re “in like” or “in love,” you’ll be dancing around to it, I guarantee.

I Didn’t Mean To Fall In Love – Snoh Aalegra

Sometimes we end up liking people more than we thought and there’s nothing wrong with that. Aalegra describes that feeling perfectly as her raspy voice goes full swing in the chorus “I didn’t mean to baby/ I didn’t mean to fall in love/ Now that I need you baby/ Promise we’ll never be apart.”

Flight 22 – Kali Uchis

This is definitely a favorite on Uchis’ debut album Isolation and it explores the feeling of adoration and the love one has towards a person to the point that everything else that is happening around them, no matter how bad, isn’t important. Just the fact that they are together is enough.

I hope these songs make your Valentine’s Day special!
