Below, discover the best new Valentine’s Day songs from artists like Rina Sawayama, Kim Petras, Paris Hilton and more. They’re better than heart-shaped balloons and drugstore candy, we swear.
The Aces, “Volcanic Love”
Icy-cool synth blasts open “Volcanic Love”—the surfy new tune from indie-pop band The Aces—lending an endearing ’80s vibe to this love song about fiery yearning.
Rina Sawayama, “Valentine (What’s It Gonna Be)”
London pop princess Rina Sawayama returns with another glossy, early-2000s-leaning pop offering with “Valentine (What’s It Gonna Be),” a no-strings-attached, anti-Valentine’s Day song perfect for jaded lovers who prefer their forever roses a little wilted.
Kim Petras, “Heart to Break”
German pop dynamo Kim Petras offers her heart up on a platter with “Heart to Break,” an earnest, bouncy electro-pop love song with a hook as undeniable and yummy as chocolate-dipped strawberries.
Paris Hilton, “I Need You”
Paris Hilton was feeling the V-Day mood when she dropped this sweet little retro-pop love song today. Featuring flourishes of vintage doo-wop charm, “I Need You” is as sugary as a box of candy Sweethearts.
Khalid & Normani, “Love Lies”
K-pop diva Suzy is drunk on love in her neon-bathed, tipsy new video for “SObeR,” one of the bubbly b-sides off her new mini-album. If you prefer to celebrate Valentine’s Day with a little champagne, this fizzy tune will give you the perfect date night buzz.
BØRNS, “I Don’t Want U Back”
BØRNS (metaphorically) flips off an ex in his moody new video for “I Don’t Want U Back,” a sexy synth-pop ode to moving on from a cheating lover.
