Being at the receiving end of heartbreak isn’t the best feeling ever and if you’re gonna cry yourself a river or you need to cuss a little, you should be trying out the music therapy. Listening to those that have gone through it or are still going through it can be your form of therapy.

Apart from music being so soothing the importance of heartbreak songs is unmatched. Listening to someone articulating how you feel even better than you, stating those hurts you never knew were there and fighting every fibre of their being wanting to hold onto someone that’s already gone.

Can we even make a list of appropriate songs for heartbroken people without mentioning Adele, the queen of heartbreak?

Regrets and mistakes, they’re memories made
Who would have known how bittersweet this would taste?

4. “Bed of Lies” – Nicki Minaj

https://youtu.be/tkJ_koXPZzs


“Bed of Lies” talk about Nicki Minaj‘s toxic relationship with an ex who only used her for the benefit that her fame got him when she just became a star. You’ll find this relatable to if you just got out a toxic relationship yourself.

Do you ever think of me when you lie?
Lie down in your bed, your bed of lies

5. “Irreplaceable” – Beyoncé

https://youtu.be/2EwViQxSJJQ

This is for my bad bitches them. You can’t afford to stay down, crying and feasting on junk food. Get back on your feet belting out the lyrics to Beyoncé’s “Irreplaceable”.Even though this song was released as far back as 2006, it still remains a classic and a fitting song for someone who has just gone through a heartbreak.

Baby I won’t shed a tear for you

7. “We Don’t Talk Anymore”- Charlie Puth

https://youtu.be/3AtDnEC4zak

Nothing hurts more than seeing an ex boyfriend or girlfriend you’re still pining after move on so easily. And that’s what Charlie Puth conveyed so well in “We Don’t Talk Anymore”. The song was released in 2016.

I just heard you found the one you’ve been looking  You’ve been looking for
I wish I would have known that wasn’t me
Cause even after all this time, I still wonder
Why I can’t move on
Just the way you did so easily

8. “You Broke Me First” – Tate McRae

https://youtu.be/AG-erEMhumc

Tate McRae’s “You Broke Me First” is another good song to listen to when going through a heartbreak. Released as part of her 2020 EP  ‘Too Young To Be Sad’, McRae sings in “You Broke Me First” about someone whose ex left him/her first and is now returning. But even though they mean a lot to them, this person chooses to value himself/herself and not accept them back. And that is what you should do too, Kings and Queens.

Now suddenly you’re asking for it back
Could you tell me, where’d you get the nerve?
Yeah, you could say you miss all that we had
But I don’t really care how bad it hurts
When you broke me first.
You broke me first

Not really sure how to feel about it
Something in the way you move
Makes me feel like I can’t live without you
It takes me all the way
And I want you to stay

10. “Hello” – Adele

https://youtu.be/YQHsXMglC9A

“Hello” is another hit song from the queen of heartbreaks you should totally listen to. This one is for those who actually served the breakfast but still can’t help feeling heartbroken because they let a good guy or girl go. Why did you do it? Adele articulates your feelings well when she sings:

Hello from the other side
I must’ve called a thousand times
To tell you I’m sorry for everything that I’ve done
But when I call, you never seem to be home

11. “Out of Love” – Chike

https://youtu.be/p4ygnUT-WOo

Chike’s “Out of Love” was released in 2020. This song is for people who are experiencing an heartbreak that could have been avoided altogether of they had just asked the right questions and refused to be in a situationship with someone.

Said I thought I was the only one
Say na me you call your number one
I thought I was the one
Why did you lead me on so long?

12. “Thunder Fire You” – Ric Hassani

https://youtu.be/ZZE8TxSW6rA

As Beyoncé’s “Irreplaceable” is for the ladies, so is Ric Hassani’s “Thunder Fire You”. Ric Hassani released this hit song in 2021. This one is for the guys who just got out of a bad relationship and have zero regrets cause it was the best decision!

Thunder fire you
For all the lies you told me
Thunder fire you
For when you cheated on me
Thunder fire you
You never did deserve me

13. “Damn Delilah” – Adekunle Gold

https://youtu.be/iLMm-0AREyQ

Some of us get heartbroken but we’re also just glad to be rid of some toxic people in our lives. And it is for people like this that Adekunle Gold released “Damn Delilah” in 2018. I don’t know how Adekunle Gold could deliver this so well, but we’re all grateful we have this song to vent to.

Without you, I am fine, girl
Without you, I am doing well.
Since you don go, I am stronger
Fimí sílè koma lo

14. “Not the Girl” – Darey

https://youtu.be/mNk4wu0j5Tg

It’s been around since 2009, but Darey’s “Not the Girl” is still one of the most popular break-up songs in Nigeria and it definitely made it to our list. This is for those who ignored the obvious signs of their failing relationship right until it crashed above them and their world came falling apart too.

You’re not the girl I used to know
You’re a shadow of yourself
I think I lost you long ago
Like a book that left the shelf

15. “Last Last” – Burna boy

https://youtu.be/421w1j87fEM

Finally on our list is Burna Boy’s “Last Last”, use this one hold body. This breakfast thing go touch everybody last last. Today it’s you, tomorrow it’s someone else. Today you’re being served breakfast, tomorrow you’re serving someone breakfast. This life na turn by turn. It will go round.

E don cast (e don cast)
Last last (last last)
Na everybody go chop breakfast (na everybody go chop breakfast)
Have to say bye bye oh
Bye bye oh
To the love of my life

Heartbreaks can be really painful and it’s evidential from the heartbreaking songs we hear from even celebrities to random heart wrenching videos we come across online. It’s sad but the happy thing is that you’re not alone on this hurtful path, hopefully you find the courage to move on.
