Stylus Female DJ Award winner DJ Lissa Monét has a simple motto: “Good music is good music, no matter what your genre preference is.” She’s spun everywhere from New York to Africa and now we’re lucky enough to have “the go-to girl” for all things new, innovative and exclusive here at Harbourfront Centre for a V-Day Dance party on The Natrel® Rink. To get into the spirit, we asked Lissa to share her Top 5 Valentine’s Day jams. Here’s what she had to say:
Beyoncé – “Dangerously in Love”
This is the ultimate love song sung beautifully by my favorite artist, Beyoncé. The lyrics stick with you and should only be reserved for the one you absolutely cannot live without.
Rumer – “Slow”
You know when you have a crush on that special person and all you can do is think about them so much you have to tell yourself to “slow down”? This song reminds me of those moments.
Seal – “Kiss from a Rose”
Who knew a standout song from the Batman Forever soundtrack could arguably be the best love song of all time!
Stevie Wonder – “I Was Made to Love Her”
Songs about childhood sweethearts always make my heart melt! Stevie’s real account of walking hand-in-hand with his little Suzy in pigtails makes you just wanna be a kid again
Lauryn Hill – “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You”
In 1998, Lauryn Hill covered this Frankie Valli classic and added her touch of R&B to it. I love playing this song at parties and weddings because it’s universally known, and it’s really fun when everyone sings that line “oh pretty baby!” at the top of their lungs.
