Best films for singles on Valentine’s Day

There is so much pressure that comes with the fear of being alone on Valentine’s Day and finding that special someone to celebrate this romantic day with, that sometimes we forget about the perks of being single.

thank u next: Ariana’s all grown up

Ariana Grande’s fifth studio album thank u, next was released on 8 February this year, just in time for Valentine’s Day. But some of her upbeat songs have sad undertones: tracks like ghostin’, imagine, in my head, bloodline and fake smile all share the realities of post-breakup anxiety and the thoughts about a future that…
