You Got It Bad! 15 Classic Soul Songs About Simping For Love

by Black America Web

To look at the Billboard Hot 100 in its current state, the message behind some of today’s biggest hits is that of independence, assertive confidence and most importantly that you’re probably better off alone after a heartbreak.

There’s Miley Cyrus sitting in the top spot with “Flowers,” a clever flip on Bruno Mars’ own 2013 chart-topper, “When I Was Your Man,” that’s become an anthem for jilted lovers everywhere.

However, there’s one song taking over the charts that borrows from a past music era where the hitmakers did almost anything to stay in love, which we see reworked in the no. 4 song in the country by Metro Boomin, The Weeknd and 21 Savage titled “Creepin’.”
