So a few weeks have passed and we’re still in a pandemic… but even if we weren’t, where I’m from, it’s -40°C outside right now. Nobody’s outside fam and because nobody’s outside, I had time to make another playlist. Last week’s post was lil heavy so to lighten the mood a bit, I thought I’d make a playlist for something that people love to debate in February. Valentine’s Day. I bet you thought I was going to bring up something controversial here. Nah fam, whether you debate celebrating it or not, you end up talking about it every year.

With Valentine’s Day, we always think of the same “holiday” songs, the same love ballads and the same synchronized dances done by R&B groups to showcase love. Although those songs are great, I wanted to put together what I think mixes of a bunch of dope b-side love songs with a few bangers that I couldn’t leave out. Here are some songs to enjoy with someone or alone to get you in that “not a holiday, holiday spirit”. Give it a listen and let me know what you think in our comments on IG at: @day.four.

Similar to the last playlist, I put some time in to try and create a flow with everything. So it’s something you can play through in its original song order (or on shuffle). The playlist is still only on Spotify but, like last time, there’s another list of all the songs with links to iTunes below, following the Spotify playlist.
