Why do we love 90's R&B love songs? Is it the lyrics? The smooth melodies? If you ask me, it's all that and a bag of chips. (Yes- we said that in the 90's...hell, I still say it when I'm being extra). It's the vibe. 90's R&B captured the essence of love songs-the soulfulness and angst...I dare you to walk away from Boys II Men's "Down on Bended Knee"...without feeling all the feels. Like you can't...
I want my love to be like a 90's Love Song- rich with emotion and intimacy. And I mean just that- give me Jodeci's "Freek'n You" and sprinkle Keith Sweat's "Make it Last Forever" right on top. Y'all know it's cuffing season is in full effect, right?
90's Love Songs bring out the best in us (yea, I may be biased since I was born in the mid 80's). When you listen to a love song, you feel good...it's euphoric....and I want euphoria in my love life.
So, to help you get right with 90’s vibes, I’ve compiled a list of the best R&B hits. They will change your life…and set a standard for the love you expect this Fall 😊. Okay, that may be a stretch lol.
