A Playlist for Valentine’s Day

Whether you’re having sex this Valentines Day or not, here are two RAZZ writer’s suggestions for your Valentine’s Day playlist….

As someone who has experienced both the customs of a relationship and the independence of single life, I can firmly attest that nothing quite taps into those feelings like the perfect steamy playlist. Whether you’ll be spending this Valentine’s Day happily single or in company, this collection of incredibly smooth R&B tunes is guaranteed to get your heart racing.

“Too Late” by The Weeknd

Nothing screams seduction more than the lyrical ingenuity of The Weeknd, and that’s why the first song I avidly suggest adding to any fiery playlist is his track “Too Late”. The angelic pitch of his voice that resonates throughout the song transcends to an almost ethereal dimension, while the synth-like backdrop seems to reflect the sensation of a pulsing heart. These elements invite you to really feel a part of the song, making its raunchy lyrics even more impressionable.

“Repeat After Me” by The Weeknd

The Weeknd’s sensuous sound has its tranquilizing effects once more in his After Hours interlude “Repeat After Me”. The song’s hushed tone and gentle rhythm soothes you in an instant, providing an experience of pure contentment throughout its duration.

“E.T.A” by Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber’s “E.T.A.” offers a kindred sensation. Its similarly sedated tempo strikes the same gratifying chord achieved by The Weeknd’s tracks, making it the perfect addition to your seductive playlist.

“Dead Man Walking” by Brent Faiyaz

If my words fail to sufficiently convey the ardent sensation that Brent Faiyaz’s “Dead Man Walking” produces upon listening, then perhaps the goosebumps that are likely to envelope your body will do the trick. This song can be felt in your veins, and will likely leave you desiring some close contact.

“Might Just” by Naji

Finally, no intimate playlist is complete without Naji’s alluring track “Might Just”. Its deep percussive sound parallels with that of The Weeknd’s, therefore activating the same intensity of emotions that “Too Late” manifests.

So, if you find yourself longing to feel your sexiest self this Valentine’s Day, these 5 songs can be trusted to serve you that confidence boost.

Eugenie Cockle

This Valentines I, like many others across the country who haven’t been locked down with their significant others, will be spending the day alone. This doesn’t mean I won’t celebrate, I will also be engaging in my favourite lockdown hobby; getting dressed up very nice, drinking some wine, looking in the mirror and going “Damn! Okay!” For that result, here is my perfect hype up playlist, for when you really need to feel yourself.

Ungodly Hour by Chloe x Halle.

This is the perfect song for when you need to remind yourself, or somebody else, that you’re too good to be treated badly. Tell your partner to work on themself first, and then you’ll be interested. Also the harmonies bang.

Glad He’s Gone by Tove Lo. 

If Britney Spears’ famous ‘Dump Him’ t-shirt got put into song form, it would be this. Tove Lo is singing to anyone who’s hung up on an ex who didn’t deserve them, a perfect song to remind yourself how good you are.

Ringtone (Remix) by 100 Gecs ft Charli XCX, Rico Nasty, Kero Kero Bonito.

Ringtone is probably the best entry way song into hyper pop, but also it goes so hard. Every single person on this remix is bringing their own unique styles to the table, and despite the fact that this absolutely should not work under any circumstances, it still goes off.

My Prerogative by Britney Spears.

The fact that I love this song as much as I do, yet still have never once spelled prerogative right the first time is as much a testament to Britney Spears’ genius as it is to my stupidity. Nobody does pop like Britney.

Barbie Tingz by Nicki Minaj.

You really think you could ever have a list of hype up tunes without Nicki Minaj? Nicki Lewinsky? Nicki the Ninja? Nicki the Boss? This song is maybe one of the best diss tracks of all time. As a feminist, I believe in supporting and uplifting other women. But as a Barb?
