Cupid Overload: 2011′s Valentine’s Day Music

By | 7 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2011/02/cupid-overload-2011-valentines-day-music"> So, obviously it's Valentine's Day and amongst other things, it is a day observed for a slew of free music under the premise of knockin' the boots, heartache and faux emotions. Gotta love Hip-Hop for it. Instead of turning the site into the Anthony Thomas music section, we decided to wrangle up the mixtapes/EPs, songs and visuals that are making this day longer than it needs to be. <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/12/review-of-diddy-dirty-money-last-train-to-paris"> Dirty Money - LoveLove Vs. HateLove, The Last Train to Paris Valentines Day Love Mix -- Diddy and the gals take a pit stop from Paris to drop some remixed smooth grooves that will probably start the night off right before things slow to a silent creep.

It possesses an aura that fully defines the Cali lifestyle with sensations of warmth and carefree leisure. Together, <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/u-n-i">Thurz and Yonas Africa</a> have mastered the art of representing their residence without constantly repeating themselves on the record.

<a href="http://vimeo.com/14967184"> Terrace Martin is one smart cookie. He knew that his musical expertise associated with any project would make it respected.

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/05/that-pharrell-sure-is-a-popular-fellow"> Prostitution is one of the oldest professions in the world. Music is likely even older than that, so it only makes sense that so many sex-filled songs have been created throughout history. That's my logic and I'm sticking to it. With that history lesson out of the way, feel free to add N*E*R*D protégés <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/christian-rich">Christian Rich </a>to the illustrious list of singers with odes to getting it on.
