Not everyone is going to end up on a romantic date for two this Valentine’s Day and we are here to tell you that is ok. If that’s the scenario you find yourself in, then press play on this playlist of anti-Valentine’s Day bagngers. There are jams for the broken-hearted, the self-obsessed and the ones that just can’t be bothered. Here are 10 of the best and the full playlist is below too.
RIHANNA- NEEDED ME
“Didn’t they tell you that I was a savage,” may be the best post-breakup line of all time and should also be your Valentine’s day motto this year. They needed you but you didn’t need them so you should give as little f***s as RiRi gives this Valentine’s Day.
SALEN- HEARTBREAK DIET
Salen are an upcoming British group who make the most honest and relatable songs. Heartbreak Diet is their latest and it’s a super cute ditty about getting over jerks. “I’m done with sticky people, they’re too hard to pick out of my teeth,” is the most poignant declaration of independence.
SYD-ALL ABOUT ME
Valentines Day anthems don’t have to be all about heartbreak. Sometimes you just want it to be all about you and that’s perfectly fine. The Internet frontwoman Syd has just released her debut solo album FIN and it features this banger All About Me. You don’t have to read into it too much to figure out what it’s about - “I guess it’s all about me”.
LADY GAGA- PERFECT ILLUSION
Lady Gaga came back this year with the most fiery breakup anthem. She’s never, ever sounded this raw before and Perfect Illusion is a grab ‘em by the ball rock song that would just about blow-up a stadium. If you’ve got some anger to rid yourself of this Valentines Day, give this one a spin.
Getting a Valentines Day date is kind of like getting a prize which is definitely not how you should be looking at it. Nao’s wobbly, middle-finger anthem Trophy is exactly what you need to fight against this. “If you think that I’m your trophy, you better change your mind,” she sings over a crunching, gritty guitar.
SANTIGOLD- CAN'T GET ENOUGH OF MYSELF
If you’re celebrating Valentines Day by yourself, you better get loved up with yourself. Nothing will help you better than Santigold’s breezy, euphoric Can’t Get Enough Of Myself which will have you buying yourself roses and adorning yourself with fancy jewelry. Because you’re worth it.
THE WEEKND- ATTENTION
Attention seekers will gather en masse this Valentines which is exactly why you need a jam about said attention seekers. This jam off the latest Weeknd record Starboy produced by Cashmere Cat will do just the trick. “You’re only looking for attention,” The Weeknd sings on a track so good that it’s actually caught our attention.
BIG SEAN- LIVING SINGLE (FT. CHANCE THE RAPPER AND JEREMIH)
The title basically says it all doesn’t it? Big Sean’s Living Single is all about the perks of living without a significant other and this trio make it sound pretty good.
