The day after Valentine’s Day is (unofficially) the day men and women all over the world sneak away from their mains and go back to their side pieces. So if you were wondering why you didn’t hear from him / her on the appointed day of love, well, uh, this is awkward.
The side piece figure is alive and well in music. Men and women alike have been singing about the trials and tribulations of feeling stuck in love triangles for decades, and some even think that being the side piece can be boatloads of fun. Take “My Little Secret” by Xscape, for example. There’s a group of side chicks who find just being in the same room as the dude’s main freaky as all hell.
Check out the following songs that salute side chicks and dudes along with choice lyrical selections from each here. Diana Espir’s “Side Chick” anthem deserves an award.
