Love is one of the only things that truly stands the test of time. Check out this list of R&B songs and how these artists use songs to express the love that they feel!
1. Manifesting the Man of Her Dreams
Selena is so ready to be with her future husband forever that she is more than content to simply pine for him all alone! She knows that sweet catharsis is inevitable with her manifestation technique, and the masterful build up of her lyrics reflect that. “And there’s nowhere in the world I’d rather be.”
2. Bringing that Old-School Maddening Love Back
Rihanna’s emotions in “Love on the Brain” are as big and larger than life as any hit soul singer of the 1970s and ‘80s. “What do I got to do to get in your motherf*cking heart?!”
3. Miguel as “Master, Babe”
This song is somehow both extremely intense and silly. “I’m your p*mp, I’m your pope, I’m your pastor, babe!”
4. Really Real Romance
“Your hand in mine/Is so divine.” Pink $weats and Tori Kelly describe a love so real that it inspires you to believe in the concept of Heaven. Does that sound too good to be true?
5. “F*** Me Numb”
“Novacane,” Frank Ocean’s fictitious song follows a pair of lovers as they enjoy the numbing effects of sex and drugs. “I think I started something. I got what I wanted (stutters) didn’t I?”
6. When Love is a Lie
Miguel describes the ultimate male fantasy in this hookup song. “So, lie to me/Lie to me, lie to me/So sweet!”
7. “Filthy When”
Beyoncé and Jay-Z highlight the freaky nature of their relationship in “Drunk in Love”. Their marriage might not be perfect, but there is not much hotter than when Beyoncé sings about getting busy with her husband. “Can’t keep your eyes off my fatty, Daddy, I want you!”
