25 Best R&B Songs To Play For A Romantic (& Super Sexy!) Date Night In

There’s nothing like good music to set the MOOD.

Date nights allow couples to rekindle their romance, especially since their busy schedules can sometimes limit the amount of time they spend with each other.

Some of my favorite date nights were spent at home.

There is nothing I enjoy more than having a good time with a person that I like in comfy clothes. There are no added expectations, no added pressures and no added fears. I can be myself without worrying about whether or not outside people are watching and judging me. That is what I call freedom.

A date nights in are pretty awesome. They give you and your partner a chance to spend uninterrupted time together while also saving money. You can engage in fun and intellectual conversation all while playing cute and interactive games or turning up the volume of your favorite songs in the comfort of your own home.

As the night goes on and the conversation starts to die down, the perfect combination of songs can help keep the romantic mood alive. 

Music has a way of describing exactly how we feel when we don’t seem to have the right words. The perfect beat with the perfect voice is unbeatable. It is magical, even. R&B songs specifically have a way of expressing how we feel about our significant other in just the right way. Though they can sometimes speak of pain, a good amount of R&B songs describe stories of love, happiness and triumph. You and your lover won’t be able to help yourselves as you nestle closer to each other and take time to truly listen to the words.

These 25 R&B artists will make your date night even more special as the artists’ soothing voices seep through the speaker and remind you how special love can truly be.
