Editors’ Notes The late 1990s and early 2000s were a golden age for slow jams: never too rough but not too soft, always hinting at something adult while staying on the right side of innocence. You can hear the butterflies here, the rush of a new crush. But you can also hear real-life romance, that commitment that runs day in, day out. Maybe it takes you back. Maybe you’re in it right now. Either way: what a feeling. We’re focusing on the past here, but our editors do switch things up now and then, so if you hear something you like, add it to your library.
