R&R yourself with 12 of music's best new love jams

It’s not just boyfriends that need a little R&R before Valentine’s Day.

Here are 12 of music’s best new love jams that will get you out of bed and into the mood.

Alicia Keys, “Skyhigh”

This piano-driven love jam features a piano riff that combines contemporary pop and a voice that will melt your heart. And the lyrics make the whole thing that much more relatable.

“I’m asking for your inside, just to know / My friend I’ve had to chase / Who is meant to be forever.”

Whitney Houston, “I Have Nothing”

There’s a reason why this hit song by Houston reached number one. She makes this song so unforgettable with its relatable lyrics. She sings about the challenges that come with finding love.

“And, nothing can keep me from you / When you close your eyes, everything goes away.”

Kelly Clarkson, “Love So Soft”

On this hit song, Clarkson is still singing about her true love – but she’s opened up a bit more than she used to. There’s something right about how she’s expressing her feelings.

“And I love love so soft / But the rose doesn’t need a rose petal / All it needs is love, love, love.”

Timbaland feat. Justin Timberlake, “Suit & Tie”

Timbaland takes a classic song from Britney Spears and makes it his own. Timberlake makes it his own, singing with a seductive delivery that allows you to believe he’s the one she loves.

“You are my match / You are my everything / I am your little match box.”

Rihanna, “Pour It Up”

Rihanna goes for all the emotion in this smash hit and gets it. At least we do.

“Oh, I’m too much trouble / Yeah, you know that.”

Jennifer Lopez feat. DJ Khaled & Bryson Tiller, “I’m Into You”

Lopez gets love by the catchy chorus in this new song. We even get a cameo from Khaled, making this a perfect take on love this Valentine’s Day.

“Hi, your name is Jennifer Lopez and your smile is like water for me / You’re into me.”

Tyga, “Used To Love”

Tyga’s not holding back about his love life in this new single. He has no time for anyone who tries to keep him down. He even talks about how he works on his hair.

“Your phone’s always out, your friends are free as a bird / So I’m so used to love, you should watch your back.”

Jason Derulo, “In My Head”

Derulo may be tired, but that’s not stopping him from getting his fill of love. From singing about it to writing it, this is a perfect anthem for this heartache-filled day.

“She got me, my head’s up, you know what’s on my mind / So where you been, so we just keep going / I wanna know why your pussy won’t do her, why’s that hoe been gone?”

Tori Kelly, “Should’ve Been Us”

We’re bringing some love back to modern pop. Kelly is cooing at us in this version of her original song. You’re going to be moved by every part of this song. It’s that good.

“Maybe I needed to take a break / Maybe I needed to fall back / Maybe we shouldn’t have been us, maybe we should’ve been us.”
