HollywoodLifers, what did you get your sweetheart for Valentine's Day?

Michelle, painted against a robin's egg blue background, rests her chin on one hand and stares at the viewer with a curious mix of confidence and vulnerability in a canvas painted by Amy Sherald. Michelle confessed she "was a little overwhelmed, to say the least", after the portrait was unveiled. The former first lady called the compilation Forever Mine.

The Valentine's Day playlist, bookended by Andra Day's "Forever Mine" and John Legend's impassionated "All of Me", features classics like Etta James' "At Last" and Diana Ross' "Endless Love".
