There's a reason why chocolates and a dozen stemmed roses are the quintessential declarations of love on Valentine's Day. But when you're Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, you've got to kick convention to the curb.
For Valentine's, Kanye arranged for his boo to be serenaded by Kenny G in their home.
Who's Kenny Go, you say? Well, for those of you who were born last year, "The G" is a famous American saxophonist.
Okay, so, the saxophone is a woodwind instrument frequently heard in almost every 80s and 90s ballad and is largely missing from contemporary music. Kenny G was the embodiment of smooth jazz with his Selmer Mark VI and has sold considered one of the best-selling artists of all time, with his impressive sales of over 75 million albums, worldwide.
Sadly as music tastes have evolved, his songs have since been relegated to playing in department store elevators to provide the utmost relaxation for shoppers' on their vertical journeys.
That Kenny G showed up for a live performance at Kimye's house.
Kardashian West tweeted her enthusiasm for her Valentine's present. If the all-caps tweet didn't give it away, she was ecstatic.
"NO BIG DEAL KENNY G IN MY LIVING ROOM!!! Happy Valentines Day."

The stage was set with a dazzling display of single stemmed roses in their respective vials set inches apart from the other. It confined the musician within a two foot-wide aisle, but Kanye wasn't going for providing comfort here.

Some felt for the woodwind wizard, who presumably might be missing out on a date night with his boo.

You know things were good when "The G" himself commented on his cameo he was more than happy to make.
Phew! It's good to know he made it outta there safely.
Looks like Kanye won Valentine's Day this year.
