I'm talking about "Happy Valentine's Day." It's today's 12 O'Clock Track and it's one of my favorite tracks off Andre's Love Below regardless of the date.
Using a slinky funk melody Andre sings and raps about a modern-day Cupid who invites everyone to submit to the raptures of love. On paper it sounds a little cheesy, but Andre's refined cool and laid-back sensuality can turn any non-romantic into a believer… or at least make anyone want to listen to "Happy Valentine's Day" more than once. Stream it below—I'd recommend playing it a few times, if only to remember that it's been nearly 10 years since this song came out.
