"The Sweetest Love" is a song by American R&B singer Robin Thicke. The R&B ballad is the follow-up single to the moderately successful "Magic" and is the second official single from Something Else. The song was released to radio on September 9, 2008.


The single charted on various amounts of Billboard charts in late November/early December 2008 and peaked at #20 on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs. While successful on many other Billboard R&B charts, "The Sweetest Love" has not been successful on many mainstream or pop charts. For example, the single has only peaked at #5 on Billboard's Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles Chart, (which would actually be equivalent to #105 if the Hot 100 singles went beyond 100 positions).
