Valentine’s just around the corner, and love is literally in the air. I mean, there are love shaped balloons hanging all over department stores and shopping malls. For happily in love people, these balloons are probably cute reminders that another special day is around the corner. But… If you’re still awaiting your other half who you’re quite sure will arrive in the very distant future, then you’re probably fed up of all of these reminders everywhere!
To ensure that you don’t choke over the Cupid induced atmosphere on the 14th, here are some purely anti-love songs you can listen to over the weekend.
Happy – Pharell Williams
The song is about happiness, just like the title implies. And what more could give you happiness if not spending some time alone. Solitude is a beautiful thing, isn’t it? Preach the self-love, please.
A Thousand Bad Times – Post Malone.
Post Malone talks about how he’s had his heart broken so many times now that he really doesn’t care anymore. Isn’t that perfect? The song will inspire you to rage about how much of a meanies your past lovers were. The best part? You really don’t care anymore!
Why – Nf
Now we can appreciate how much of a bad bitch/dude you are, because… you even pushed away your loved ones. There’s no way you’ll feel left out on Valentine’s Day, because you don’t even have a heart – to begin with… Besides, NF’s songs hit on a different level.
Godly – Omah Lay
This song will help you to remember why you’re such an independent single – because you’re Godly! You don’t have to stress over the love floating around you, you’re very comfortable in your feelings. Valentine’s on Sunday, take your time to praise God. Glory!
Koleyewon – Naira Marley
There are some jokes in the Nigerian social media space about how Naira Marley’s songs are perfect for when you’re escaping from musicians – like Johnny Drille and John Legend – who’ll just make you want to fall in love. Koleyewon will send the Cupid energy away. If you feel yourself getting depressed, this song will definitely bring back the energy.
Blank Space – Taylor Swift
Nothing channels Taylor’s bad bitch more than a breakup. This is for the ones whose hearts have been broken over and over again. You’re now a player, welcome to the game.
Look What You Made Me Do – Taylor Swift
Look What You Made Me Do is another Taylor Swift Classic. This one channels all of your inner bad guys. The song will elevate you into space, and you’ll only be able to come back after all the Cupid Demons have been slayed. That is, when Valentine’s Day is over. Perfect, right?
Away – Ayra Starr
Ayra Starr gives tips on how to forget a toxic relationship – by ending it. You’ll find yourself basking in an “Away” induced euphoria. It’s a goodbye to everything toxic.
Squander – Niniola and Falz
The truth is, we can’t have you getting all sentimental now, can we? So, here’s a totally non-love related song. It has that whole comedic Money Heist feel to it. And it’s also a reminder to take yourself somewhere good. Be honest, when was the last time you took yourself on a date?
Mirror On The Wall – Lil Wayne
This song is going to test your singing prowess. Never mind that Mirror on The Wall probably has some deep meaning, put your spin on it. You can belt it out loud when some romantic music from your neighbor starts to disturb you. Better still, stand in front of a mirror and look at yourself. Aren’t you very good looking? Come on, give yourself some self-love!
Sweet but Psycho – Ava Max
We all know how heartbreaks leave us feeling – crazy, lonely, sad. Sweet but Psycho will leave you feeling the opposite way – powerful and in charge. When you’re done with that song, you’ll lean back and cross your legs – give yourself a good pat – and thank your stars that you didn’t give in to that part of you that wanted to lose it.
One Ticket – Kizz Daniel
Ever hear people talk about how love is a scam? You have? Great! Then this song will help you remember. You haven’t? Awesome, now listen to this. It’s a capital E for Energy!
Life’s A Happy Song – The Muppets
This song will wrap things up in a very nice fashion – the same way you started. It’s guaranteed to make you smile. You do know you need a big smile to wrap up your Valentine’s weekend, don’t you?
Now, go enjoy the songs. Don’t say thank you, that’s what we’re here for. At least, we now know that if you’re asked how your weekend went, you’ll say it was “amazing”.
