Ghanaians may go all out for Valentine’s Day but their musical choices seem to betray their real feelings as Future’s Worst Day, which literally refers to Valentine’s Day as the worst day of the year, is their top song leading into the day.

According to Spotify data which tracks how the popularity of songs is spiking leading into the day, more and more Ghanaians are listening to Future’s ‘WORST DAY’ – a song which features the line “Valentine’s day, the worst day, got too many to please”. 

Thankfully, the rest of Ghana’s favourite songs heading into Valentine’s Day are injecting a bit more of the romance back into things.

Rema’s ‘Calm Down’, – which talks about the singer’s infatuation with a girl he met at a party, is the song that has seen the biggest spike in streams in Ghana during this love season. 

Akwaboah and Cina Soul’s song ‘Obiaa’ might also be the perfect song to say I love you. The song, which captures love, affection, intimacy and attachment to a lover, has also seen a major spike in popularity..

Adele’s ‘Easy On Me’ also made its way into the list of the spiking songs in the country capturing the despair and pain that Adele is so well known for portraying in her music.

Whether they’re fed up with love, feeling those early pangs of infatuation or in the grief stages of love- the data shows that Ghanaians are feeling all the feels when it comes to music.

  1. WORST DAY – Future
