Regardless of whether you’re painfully single or head over heels in love, Valentine’s Day calls for music. After all, 90% of songs are about love one way or another. So with that said, here’s our curated list of Anghami playlists to capture the full spectrum of emotions this Valentine’s Day.


IT’S COMPLICATED

Anghami’s playful ode to TikTok heartbreak ballads and Arab indie anthems makes for the perfect situationship channeling music. From PinkPantheress to Sigrid, the playlist co-mixes bedroom and alt-pop, all dedicated to the long hours spent waiting for a text back.



VIRTUAL LOVE

Anghami did not forget the long-distance babies. Featuring Soulja Boy Tell’Em, ‘Virtual love’ drops the despondent absent lover aesthetic, opting for a free-spirited hip-hop take.



TO MY EX

Looking for that perfect heartbreak anthem to help you get over a toxic ex who love-bombed you one Valentine’s day and then proceeded to flirt with other girls? ‘To My Ex’ melodically channels that bitterness with a collection of pop songs to remedy that mood.



I KNEW YOU WERE TROUBLE

When you walked in…so shame on us for gatekeeping this playlist for this long. With an amalgamation of female powerhouses - the Dixie Chicks included - this playlist is the new conduit for your sour love affairs.



DARK ACADEMIA ROMANCE

It’s a little Mitski, a little Florence + the Machine topped with a sprinkle of Cigarettes After Sex to seal the Victorian forbidden love affair cake.



LOVE AT THE MOVIES

If you’ve ever dreamed of Bryan Adams narrating your love life as a romantic montage of you and your fictional partner plays, then this playlist has got you covered. If that’s not a latent fantasy of yours, then a little Bruce Springstein might just set that in motion.



STARING AT THE CEILING WITH YOU

One word…Hozier. Trappings of a forlorn love affair intertwined with a retained fondness for a past lover, this playlist captures the harmonic essence of nostalgia, suitable for those reminiscing this Valentine’s Day.



LOCKDOWN ROMANCE

You’ve done the bonding, and all the flowery lovey-dovey moments - the pandemic has left no emotion unfelt. Now the eternal love is seeping in, and the gratitude for a lifelong soulmate overwhelms you. ‘Lockdown Romance’ is a euphonious materialization of just that.



ROMANCY BY NANCY

It’s Nancy Ajram and Nancy Ajram only, so suit up and get to dancing because if there's one universal mood this Valentine’s Day, it’s Nancy Ajram. Honestly, mafeesh haga teegee keda.
