Valentine's Day is right around the corner, and if you're still searching for the right conversation hearts to tell your sweetie how you feel, we say ditch the sugar and go straight for Laidback Luke's latest. 

"Can't Hold My Tongue" is a perky piece of electro-pop that sparkles and fizzes with nu-disco funk. London R&B crooner Sxmson comes through with candied hooks and verses smooth as caramel, drizzling some extra romanticism on this bright and bubbly love song. 

"'Can't Hold My Tongue' is actually the result of a last-minute cancellation during my week of studio sessions in London," Luke tells Billboard Dance. "Sxmson was able to fill the gap and smashed the vocal on the concept I gave him. Definitely one to sing along with immediately."

The Dutch producer is a sonic chameleon who can serve it up crunchy and hard or smooth and sweet. We're glad he went with the latter this time as we skip our way across the dance floor. Celebrate the season of love and dedicate this to someone special.

"Can't Hold My Tongue" with Sxmson is out everywhere on Luke's label Mixmash Records, but you can listen to it a day early below, exclusively on Billboard Dance.
