You asked for a list of the best romantic songs shared on the web in 2017 so far and you got it! It’s hard to imagine the volume of people who love the same song and for so many reasons. Can you imagine the world singing a song in all different parts of the world simultaneously? It could happen with technology as it is today. I’m sure it’s happening in black chat rooms for singles right now!

Those who emerged in the music industry took the charts by storm with some of their best songs ever. The year is not over yet so I suspect the list will change by years end. New talent is being discovered every day but whether they can produce more than one hit record remains to be seen. Stats prove “good” romantic songs live forever like Cyndi Lauper’s “Time after Time” and it doesn’t matter when they were released, we still play them over and over again.

The thing about love songs is that people fall in love a lot and every relationship must have a ‘song.’ Music influences millions of people as the lyrics inspire and relate to our very existence. The song must have meaning to society in order to be successful. As you know ballads are the most popular niche in the music field. Performers such as Luther Vandross had much success singing love songs and crossed many musical and racial barriers by doing so. And on that note, let’s take a look at some of the best romantic songs in 2107.

Fifth Harmony – Down ft. Gucci Mane

The single composition, “Down,” had some concerned as Gucci Mane agreed to appear on the track with Fifth Harmony. Yes, the people doubted the combo’s decision but the stats prove you can’t latch on to other people’s opinions all the time and that timing is everything. We all know what happened with Gucci Mane connected with the Black Beatles. Enough said.

John Legend – Love Me Now

The Legend is unconditionally in love and shows his feelings by releasing them in his music. “Love Me Now” is one of John Legends hits thus far (111,062,319 views). It was the first track off the Darkness and Light album.

Adele – Hello

Who’s surprised at Adele’s success? We’re not as her smash hit, “Hello,” was viewed over 1,985,047,925 times on YouTube alone! Um, yeah. That’s how you say, “Hi.”

Mr. Probz – Nothing Really Matters

I was shocked Mr. Probz was not a country singer as his voice surely has the makings of a captivating storyteller. Not that it really matters what I think, but count me as one of the twenty million plus people who are playing this song. Take a listen to the underrated heart throbbing love song… when-a-man-loves-a-woman song… OMG, yeah.

The Weeknd – Secrets

The Weeknd on “Secrets” during an interview with Billboard Mag –

“I tried to find different registers that I hadn’t sung in before. I sang a lot of low stuff on songs like “Secrets” and “Rockin’,” almost like Toni Braxton. On “Secrets,” I’m a different person. I’ve played it for people, and they have no idea it’s me.”

John Legend – All of Me

We can’t ignore the fact John Legend is everywhere partly due to the popularity of “All of Me.” John will take an “E,” please, Johnny, to complete the series, the EGOT Club. Easy enough, right? The single, “All of Me” scored a billion plus views!

Rihanna – Diamonds

Although, RiRi recorded Unapologetic in 2012, since then, “Diamonds” has been a favorite love song among women. The album was Rihanna’s 7th album in the studio. This song is incredibly steamy and only 1,013,813,655 people agree with me.

Disclosure – Latch feat. Sam Smith

Who didn’t fall in love with a Sam Smith song? I can’t believe it has been a few years since the release of In the Lonely Hour, in 2014. The debut album includes other hits such as “Stay with Me.” I think we can all relate to at least one track on the collection as it’s clear Sam Smith knows a thing or two about relationships.
