The Rub x Thump – Luv U Better

February 20th, 2014

Another Valentine’s Day has come and gone, and with it another tide of randy, amorous DJ mixes cleverly hoping to capitalize on the trending topic and incite libidos around the world. Well, you can forget about all those cheesy basslines and sultry vocals, because we have an R&B mix to end all R&B mixes. The Rub has carefully assembled Luv U Better, an hour-long set, jam-packed with early 2000s R&B joints from top-shelf vibe dealers like Brandy, Ashanti, R. Kelly, and Aaliyah, which you can stream above.
