Music has always been there for our breakups, our “it’s complicated” situations, and of course, when we fall in love. Have you ever experienced the feeling of loving someone and truly being loved in return, where you are totally free and encouraged to be yourself? It seems as if Beyoncé’s 1+1, Anthony Hamilton’s I Know What Love’s All About, and Jill Scott’s A Long Walk always smashes the nail right on the head. When you are in love with someone, these songs just hit differently. A beautiful feeling is attached to being in love and when music can depict the love that you feel for your significant other, that is even more captivating.

Whether you are in love with him/her or a dreamy, gorgeous plate of food… this playlist will remind you that this love will last forever. With artists like Tamia, Beyoncé, Tweet and just a smidgen of Pop Smoke you’ll be singing love notes all night.
Relationships are sacrificial. Every day is a form of sacrifice, and that’s a choice to choose each other. They’re filled with so much gray. How open are we? How open and willing are we to evolve? How open and willing are we to let go of our own trauma, our own baggage and willing to see a person for who they really are, see the best in them, see the potential in them and see the hope, see the dreams, see the goals, and the desires?
Love is more than hugs and kisses every day. Love is more than someone to have sex with when you want. Love is accepting someone regardless of their flaws and their past. When you find that person you’ll know. It can be noticed in a vast number of ways.

I Choose You by Kiana Ledé
“Even when you knew it was heavy, you was still holding me up…”, a principle in love. When someone can be there for you through the thickest of things, and even *healthily* put you before themselves… That is a pure sign of love.
Promise by Ciara
“Tell the whole world that I’m in love with you, whatever you want, baby I’ll do…”. Growing up with a generation that has placed value on the privacy of their romances, this line is extreme. So, to vocalize that you are willing to tell the whole world that you are in love with someone is a rare sign of love, sometimes.
Best Friend by Tweet/Bilal
Falling in love with your best friend is a risky move but, it is also a different kind of love. Sometimes expressing how you feel can go one of two ways, in which we all know. But, before you go confessing just think about it or if you know for sure, go for it.
These were just a few songs featured on the playlist and a little of my commentary as I listened to these emotion-filled songs.
