Charli XCX - "Unlock It (feat. Kim Petras and Jay Park)"

There's nothing better than a bubblegum pop track to remind you how sweet love can be. Charli teams up with Kim Petras and Jay Park for this sparkly, wide-eyed tune.

This is the song that plays when cupid strikes you with his arrow. BØRNS breakout track will never lose it's electrified hold on love.

The openly gay twins strike a different note with this hit, reminding us that love can present difficulties for everyone.

The Aces - "Volcanic Love"

The Aces show us how explosive love can be with their freshly released single, off their forthcoming album When My Heart Felt Volcanic (April 6th).

Japanese Breakfast - "Everybody Wants To Love You"

The perfect soundtrack for skipping through flowers. Japanese Breakfast perfectly embodies the essence a sweet, summertime romance with upbeat drums and sugary strings.

Kim Petras - "Heart to Break"

Kim Petras brings us a sticky new single, where she gives up some control and risks her heart for love.

SZA - "Love Galore (feat. Travis Scott)"

SZA broke the charts with this single, but in no way does that take away from the essence of this earworm. The tune touches on the all too familiar feeling of desire for someone from the past but knowing better than to repeat mistakes.

Aminé - "Caroline"

Aminé gets braggadocious on this track, basically embodying the side-eye emoji.

Sivan puts a spring in your step with his most current confession of infatuation. His latest single is energetic, enticing you to hit the dance floor with the one you want to be closest to.

Kendrick Lamar - "LOVE. (feat. Zacari)"

Kendrick portrays the ups and downs of love in this visual, charged by the forever looming question of "would you still love me?"

Daniel Caesar - "Get You (feat. Kali Uchis)"

Caesar's first track to garner him attention is a slow winding, melodic ode that brings a temporary ease to love.

Ravyn Lenae - "Closer (Ode 2 U)"

Leane gives us a taste of the 90s R&B love. "Closer", off her recently dropped Crush, is groovy yet smooth, making this an instant hip shaker.

Sabrina Claudio - "Frozen"

Claudio's sultry vocals dominate this track, exposing the rawest intimacies of love. "Frozen", off her recently released About Time,  hold you close and makes you feel like this tune was made just for you.

Sam Smith - "One Last Song"

And then there's the one you just can't get off your mind. Sam Smith promises to call it quits after just one final coo on his new LP, The Thrill of It All. 

Lauryn Hill - "Can't Take My Eyes Off of You"

A timeless cover of  Frankie Valli's "Can't Take My Eyes Off of You". Off her legendary two-time Grammy-winning album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, her voice transcends and finds a place in any love story.

ZAYN - "fOoL fOr YoU"

Malik takes us on a vocal joyride while professing love's harsh effects. Laid over a piano and smooth drums, "fOoL fOr YoU" concretizes the dumbfoundedness that comes from love.

Lana Del Rey - "Love"

Lana reminds us what it's like when the world was yours, when you were young and in love. As the opener to her most recent LP, Del Rey takes us back to when love was a little simpler.

The 1975 - "Loving Someone"

Much like in real life, "Loving Someone" is a broad and vast hymn, with an unbiased message of love. A song driven by an equality-centric mindset, The 1975 has molded a soundtrack for unification born from love and understanding.

Childish Gambino - "The Night Me And Your Mama Met"

For when there are no words, there's Childish Gambino. The conclusion to his latest LP "Awaken, My Love!"  perfectly summarizes the inner vibrancies of love.
