Bound 2 – Kanye West feat. Charlie Wilson
Say what you may, but Kanye knows how to make a good song – and this is just the perfect one if you want to play a love song that starts smooth and continues in a hip-hop beat only Kanye could pull off. A great choice for those of you who like his music!
Make Me Better – Fabolous feat Ne-Yo
This song is so old that it can almost be considered vintage – but, just like good wine, it got better with time. Smooth, sexy, with beautiful lyrics and the kind of music you can actually dance the First Dance to, this tune is a great choice.
Teenage Love – Slick Rick
Speaking of vintage, this one came out no less than two decades ago – so if you absolutely love that late 90s hip-hop vibe, this song is just perfect for you. The lyrics of this tune may not be all happy – but it’s a great option if you want to blend in multiple songs and create a musical story for your First Dance.
Beautiful – Snoop Dogg feat Pharrell
Coming back to more modern hip-hop (but still almost 15 years old!), this song is a masterpiece of the genre. Sweet and smooth, beautiful, sexy, and romantic at the same time, this tune will surely accompany you through a blissful First Dance. Who could do it better, other than Snoop Dogg himself and Pharrell?
Happy – Pharrell
If you like Pharrell and if you want a First Dance that’s filled with energy and positivity, this is IT. Not exactly a hip-hop song, but definitely sang by one of the most popular artists in the hip-hop industry of the past couple of decades!
