‘Sex with Me’: Rihanna tops Valentine’s playlists


Lovers who plan to celebrate Valentine’s Day with some music in the bedroom have voted — they do it to Rihanna.

Leading streaming service Spotify marked the holiday of love Tuesday by analyzing playlists described by users as songs for making love.

The top choice was Rihanna’s “Sex With Me,” a track off her latest album “Anti” in which the sultry singer boasts of her prowess.

In second place was another R&B track, Jeremih’s 2009 hit “Birthday Sex.”

Playlists that more innocently spoke of date night music were led by Ed Sheeran’s mega-single “Thinking Out Loud.”

Inside the United States, Spotify also sought clues by counting the number of playlists for dating and explicitly about sex.

The Midwestern state of Ohio had the biggest preference for sex over dating songs, followed by nearby Michigan.

Hawaii topped states whose listeners looked more for dating than sex, with Mormon-dominated Utah coming second.
