By Carlene Thomas Bailey

Happy Valentine’s Day! We’ve got Cupid on our mind today so we’ve decided to pull together a little music and fashion inspired playlist for WGSN Insider readers, enjoy!

There’s nothing better than a great song, so log in to your YouTube, Spotify or Tidal account and listen to these classic tunes and emerging music artists this Valentine’s, with a playlist curated by us:

Drake- Hotline Bling

Fact: the fashion in this video is such a nod to activewear and the backdrop to the video is 100% Instagram worthy, but if I’m honest I just think that Drake is so adorable and the song is the perfect club hit, so listen to it and crank up the volume- Senior Editor, Carlene Thomas-Bailey

2 Become 1- The Spice Girls

This is a 90s classic and with the 90s heavily influencing the catwalk (see the velvet chokers rocked by Bella Hadid at Giles during LFW for reference) this is the ideal song. Also Spiceworld the movie is my guilty pleasure- Laura Yiannakou, Associate Editor, Womenswear.

Mura Masa- Love for That featuring Shura

I featured this  song in my recent New Music report for 2016, Mura Masa (aka Alex Crossan) is definitely one to watch. His sound is razor-sharp electronics mixed with global influences- Sarah Owen, Youth Editor.

Kanye- Real Friends

Pretty much any song by Yeezy is a hit in my eyes for Valentine’s, because no one loves Kanye like Kanye does, and also this Valentine’s is particularly special as it falls within New York Fashion Week and no one has dominated the conversation more this season than Kanye and the season three launch of Yeezy. His live collection and album party just took place at New York’s Madison Square Garden, trending on Twitter and filling up my Instagram feed- Andrea Bell, Director, Think Tank.

Upside down – Diana Ross

It’s a classic and it’s a nod to the 70s, which is very current within luxury retail right now thanks to Gucci’s Alessandro Michele. This Valentine’s weekend I’ll be listening to a ton of disco music at my event The Denim Disco 2 – where anyone can come, dance and recycle old jeans- Sara Radin, Associate Editor of City by City.
