We are back with a new and improved Sapphic Valentine’s Day playlist featuring twenty additional tracks for your enjoyment this holiday and beyond. Whether you are adding them to last year’s collection or savoring them on their own, there’s a perfect song for every mood.  

From recent releases like Meghan Thee Stallion and Reneé Rapp’s “Not My Fault” and FLETCHER’s “Lead Me On” to timeless tracks like Holly Miranda’s “All I Want Is To Be Your Girl,” there’s something here for every emotion, from love and lust to heartbreak, and everything in between. 



1. Chappell Roan – “Red Wine Supernova”

This gay girl anthem, with its Regina George-coded vibe, is a flawless reminder of just how hot you are. 

Best lyric: “Can a gay girl get an amen? (amen)”



8. Amandla Stenberg – “Let My Baby Stay”

Stenberg’s interpretation of Mac Demarco’s “Let My Baby Stay” infuses the love song with a queer essence, adding depth to its already poignant lyrics and melody. 

Best lyric: I was made to love her, been working at it / Half of my life, I’ve been an addict”



9. Nxdia – “She Likes a Boy”

Nxdia captures the torment of wishing you could be with someone who likes someone else. 

Best lyric: She’s half-Greek with a pretty face, strawberry lipgloss, oh it’s wasted on this dumb boy / who likes the chase, but why am I so angry in the first place?”



10. King Princess – “Ain’t Together”

King Princess’s homage to situationships may be uncomfortably relatable.

12. Claud – “Soft Spot”

“Soft Spot” is about that person that makes you crumble just at the thought of them. 

Best lyric:I wish I left all my things at your place so I could come get them / We’d do things we might regret”

Ask that pretty girl to be yours this Valentine’s Day with this track by UMI. 

Best lyric: I wish that maybe you could be mine / Wish that maybe you could be mine”

A catchy reminder that love can surprise you when you are least expecting it. 

Best lyric: I wasn’t looking for love, but she found me / I got a lot of control when you’re not around me”



15. boygenius – “Emily I’m Sorry”

This tune captures the vulnerability of heartbreak and the desperate plea for forgiveness that often comes alongside it.

Best lyric: Emily, forgive me, can we / Make it up as we go along? / I’m twenty-seven, and I don’t know who I am / But I know what I want”



16. beabadoobee – “Coffee”

One way to say “I love you” is by making her a cup of coffee just how she likes it. 

Best lyric: And I’ll make a cup of coffee with the right amount of sugar / How you like it”



17. FLETCHER – “Lead Me On”

When a piece of someone is better than nothing at all. 

Best lyric:The thought of you is torture (The thought of you is torture) / But your heart is constantly runnin’ / Just never toward me”

 You know those straight girls who get drunk and want to kiss another girl? This song is about them.
