Whether you’re in a relationship, single or planning on celebrating with friends (cheers to Galentine’s Day!), Valentine’s Day is all about feeling the love. Maybe you’re planning a Valentine’s night in with a special someone or you’re grabbing dinner with the girls — either way, you’ll need some good music to ensure your Valentine’s Day feels both sweet and fun. While we all love a good love ballad (Adele, we’re looking at you!) sometimes, you just need some sexy songs in your life for amping yourself up or setting the mood.
To help you out, we’ve created the perfect sexy Valentine’s Day playlist filled with bops that deserve to be sung along to — whether you’re just trying to feel good while chilling alone or if you’re with a partner trying to get down. From Doja Cat to Harry Styles, these artists have brought the heat with their sexy tracks.
A sultry song to dance to: Doja Cat — “Streets”
Of course, we had to kick this sexy playlist off with Doja Cat’s sultry bop, “Streets.” Doja sings about going back to a lover because he’s the one she wants to marry: “I’ll put the ring on when you ready,” she raps. It’s slow but super catchy, perfect for re-creating a silhouette challenge to, or to getting it on to — let’s be real.
A romantic song to sing along to: Pink Sweat$ — “Paradise”
“I feel alive when I look your eyes,” Pink Sweat$ sings on this sweet track, that’s just as romantic as it is sexy. The melody will get you if the lyrics don’t, and Pink Sweat$ smooth, rich vocals will have you floating on cloud nine.

A song to blast at full volume: Harry Styles — “Adore You”
Please, you didn’t think we wouldn’t include Harry Styles on here, did you? “Adore You” is an ode to loving someone and all the things you would do for them. Comparing someone to “wonder under summer sky” is pretty hot, in our humble opinion. With Harry Styles singing to you, it truly doesn’t get sexier than that.
A breakup song that feels sexy: Cannons — “Fire For You”
Remember on Bridgerton, when Regé-Jean Page‘s character, Simon, famously told Phoebe Dynevor’s Daphne that he “burned” for her? Well, this song pretty much takes that heat and puts it to a synth-pop beat, to create a glittering disco tune that gives that line new life.
Even though it’s about a breakup, there’s something pretty steamy about hearing the lyrics: “My heart just dropped/Thinkin’ about you/The world just stops/When I’m without you.”
A song for your bedroom fantasies: Ari Lennox ft. J. Cole — “Shea Butter Baby”
Ari Lennox doesn’t hold back when it comes to letting her partner know what she wants them to do to her on this spicy track. “Touch me, take me, kiss me/Love me, impress me,” she sings. It’s not hard to imagine your partner exploring all your erogenous zones while listening to this. Crank up the volume and prepare to feel confident and turned on.
