Valentine’s Day is here so that means nothing but fine wines and good vibes for all the lovers in the world. Though recent years delivered a set of R&B songs that fit the mood of today, nothing quite beats the sound of ’90s R&B and the feelings that came along with those songs. Without any debate, ’90s R&B was the essence of love and we couldn’t picture a successful Valentine’s Day without a ‘90s R&B playlist serving as the soundtrack.
With that in mind, we decided that it would be fitting to take you back to that place of love and happiness and show you what Valentine’s Day would’ve been like had you been in celebration mode 20 years ago. Though most of the R&B hits from ’97 didn’t erupt on the scene until after February of that year, the tracks released from 1995 leading up to 1997’s date of love made for an unforgettable playlist that was sure to make anyone D.T.D. (Drop them draws, dawg!).
