Welcome back to Takeover Tuesday, where each week Billboard taps chart-topping artists and tastemakers to compile their very own playlist exclusive to Billboard's Spotify account. We give the artists free rein to base the list on whatever subject they choose. The only rule? Make it as creative and unique to them as possible.

This week, following the news that Michelle Branch is engaged to The Black Keys' drummer Patrick Carney, Branch shares a personal playlist of love songs that's come full circle now that the two are getting married. "This is the first mixtape Patrick made me when we first started dating," she tells Billboard

The two started dating while working on Branch's third studio album, Hopeless Romantic, that was released in April and produced by Carney. The couple got engaged on Sunday, July 2, which also happened to be Branch's 34th birthday. 

"Last night, right before I blew out my candles, @officerpatrickcarney asked me to marry him and then I had nothing left to wish for," she captioned a photo of the ring on Instagram
