ridin' solo

14 songs to listen to if you’re ridin’ solo this Valentine’s Day

It’s February 14, aka Valentine’s Day, aka the day of countless posts on social media with people declaring their love for their significant other.

Here at Fuzzable, we LOVE celebrating love, and if you’re coupled up this Valentine’s Day then we hope that your day (and forever) is filled with happiness in abundance.

For those who are single, days like today can feel a little lonely. However, you don’t need a partner to feel loved on Valentine’s Day. Not only is Galentine’s – where you celebrate your love for your friends – on the rise, but it’s also important to love yourself because quite frankly you are awesome AF.

Just in case you’re ridin’ solo this Valentine’s, and need reminding that you are indeed a wonderful human being who is very much loved, we’ve rounded up 14 empowering anthems for you to play at full volume.

1. Jason Derulo – ‘Ridin’ Solo’

Kicking off our playlist with the ultimate single anthem from Mr Jason Derulo, because ridin’ solo is the way forward.

2. Pussycat Dolls – ‘I Don’t Need A Man’

We’d be lying if we said this wasn’t our anthem for the entirety of 2005/2006 and tbh we still don’t need a man to make us feel good.

3. G-Eazy and Bebe Rexha – ‘Me Myself and I’

“Oh, it’s just me, myself and I, solo ride until I die” sings vocal powerhouse Bebe Rexha, and honestly we’ve never related more.

4. Demi Lovato – ‘Really Don’t Care’

If Demi doesn’t care, then neither should we.

5. Cyndi Lauper – ‘Girls Just Wanna Have Fun’

A classic track with a message with remains true to this day.

6. Destiny’s Child – ‘Independent Women’

Destiny’s Child are queens of independence and we love it. ‘Independent Women’ was the soundtrack to the Charlie’s Angels movie, and it’s definitely a personal soundtrack of ours too.

7. Natasha Bedingfield – ‘Single’

“This is my current single status, my declaration of independence” – has there ever been a more empowering chorus?

8. Robyn – ‘Dancing On My Own’

We’re pretty happy dancing on our own to this fantastic track from Robyn.

9. Taylor Swift – ‘Shake It Off’

When everyone’s all loved up and you’re watching from the sidelines, you’ve just gotta shake it off Taylor style.

10. Kelly Clarkson – ‘Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)’

‘Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)’ is a huge anthem from Kelly Clarkson, and reminds us that we are incredibly powerful human beings.

11. Pharrell Williams – ‘Happy’

We wish to always be as happy as Pharrell and the people in this video.

12. En Vogue – ‘My Lovin’ (You’re Never Gonna Get It)’

This sassy anthem from iconic girlband En Vogue is THE ONE. As Gemma Collins would say, you ain’t ever gonna get this candy.

13. Ed Sheeran – ‘You Need Me, I Don’t Need You’

Nope, we don’t need you, even if you need us.

14. Hailee Steinfeld – ‘Love Myself’

The ultimate key to happiness, loving yourself. Thanks to this bop from Hailee Steinfeld, we can remind ourselves on the daily that we should always put ourselves first.
