Love and Hip-Hop (and R&B)
Valentine’s Day is what’s celebrated, but Valentine’s night is where it’s at, especially for music lovers. If your significant other is a concert fan, take him or her to Friday’s LoveFest Miami 2014 at the BankUnited Center (University of Miami, 1245 Dauer Dr., Coral Gables). The concert will showcase the latest in R&B and hip-hop hit-makers. Headlining the show are Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star and recording artist K. Michelle as well as rappers Wale and Meek Mill. R&B artist Marcus Cooper will also perform. You might say to yourself, Hip-hop? On Valentine’s Day? Sure, it’s not traditionally the most romantic genre, but Wale and Meek Mill have their fair share of love songs. It’s a safe bet they’ll turn up the heat like never before, making sure your girl goes home ready to rumble and your boy goes home ready to check his manly inhibitions at the door. Be sure to arrive early so Cooper’s crooning can set the mood. LoveFest Miami begins at 7:30 p.m., and tickets cost $45 to $171. Call 305-284-8686 or visit bankunitedcenter.com.
