Last year, I posted "10 R&B Songs You Need To Have In Your Valentine's Day Playlist." Well this year, with the help of the Windy City Blogger Collective, I have 20 more songs for you to add to that list! I asked the members of the WCBC, "If you were making a date night playlist, what songs would you absolutely have to add?" They delivered big time! Check out the songs below and I have also included a Spotify and Apple Music playlist of all the songs below. Happy Valentine's Day!

Stevie Wonder-Take Care-Class

Here’s a quote from Drake: “Stevie Wonder is a very close friend of mine. I’m honored to call him a friend, someone who embraced me very early in this music business. This is an exclusive right here, because it’s MuchMusic, and we’re Canadian: Stevie Wonder is actually on ‘Take Care.’ He helped me out with a lot of the music, just came and sat with me, listened to my music, told me where I could add a couple things to make it more sonically appealing, and not only that but we actually are writing together, which is an incredible experience.

So I hit him, asked him to come by, and with no hesitation he hit me back like “I will be there.” Not only that, but he was supposed to do two songs and he did like six. It was incredible.” Word? That’s class. It just got real. Enjoy.
