The Top Ten Love Songs of 2013 So Far
Turn to the person next to you and tell them you love them. Why? Because love is the best! And in celebration of just that, here are our favorite loved-up tracks of 2013 so far.
1. When I Was Your Man - Bruno Mars
Because heaven knows you can't have love without a little heartbreak.
2. Jerk Ribs - Kelis
Kelis has still got it. Fact. “Jerk Ribs” is a soul-fuelled tribute to the good time.
3. You’re in Love - Betty Who
Betty Who? Ms. Newham delivers one of the most iconic pop moments of 2013 so far with this candy-filled lovers' embrace.
4. Closer - Tegan & Sara
Off the back of "Closer," 2013 is the year that Tegan & Sara have gone from indie darlings to bonafide pop stars. They're still far from typical.
5. Imagine It Was Us - Jessie Ware
UK ingenue Jessie Ware is seducing us again. The last single off her debut album Devotion, ‘Imagine It Was Us’ brings back some of the same '90s UK garage sound her voice sounds so good against. Love on the dancefloor.
6. The Wire - Haim
Now this one might be a "no more love" song, there are some serious things stacked in its favor that helped it make the list. Three LA sisters. Witty lyrics. R&B pop sensibilities. One third of the Lonely Island in their music video. What more do you want?
7. Hold On, We’re Going Home - Drake
There's nothing quite as comforting as knowing you're heading home after a long day. Heading home with Drake? Nothing beats that.
8. Losing You - Solange
“Tell me the truth boy, am I losing you for good?” Solange asks repeatedly throughout her uber cool breakthrough track. Although something tells us she doesn’t need him. Like, at all.
9. #Beautiful - Mariah Carey and Miguel
Far from being merely a hashtag on the pop music radar, this smooth, sexy number by dream team Mariah and Miguel will last many, many summers to come.
10. Pusher Love Girl - Justin Timberlake
Timberlake/Timbaland team up to create one of the greatest love songs of the 21st century. Between JT’s oohs and Timbaland’s skittering vocal percussion, it’s an organic and entrancing eight minute pop masterpiece. -Ashe Davenport
