So you’re going through a breakup right now and you need some breakup songs to symbolize your emotions, I get it. Here I am, the queen of aux, to provide you with a few breakup songs that don’t feel so sad that can get you moving and hopefully feeling a bit better!
First of all, I just found out this breakup song is about Logan Paul which is a little cringe-worthy but still, Olivia O’Brien does not miss. She is the queen of breakup songs about how much your partner sucked, not you. So put on this song about a boy you almost, basically, may as well have dated who ended up breaking your heart even though you weren’t expecting it. It’s actually very therapeutic to scream this song in your car alone, trust me I tried it out on my own.
The Mecca of hot girl breakup songs. Putting on Rihanna will actually make you realize that you have a ton of self-worth and you’re twice as hot without him than when you were with him. Breakup songs don’t have to make you sad, they can make you realize that you are okay just being alone. This song is no exception to the rule, and it will instill some of that baddie energy you so desperately crave post-breakup.
Hurts Like Hell–Madison Beer, Offset
I have been loving Madison Beer’s breakup songs as of lately because she really gets it. The “it” I’m referring to is wanting to make your ex regret everything he’s ever done to you. We all know the feeling of wanting to change up your look or wear your hottest outfit out just so you can get a picture that will make him aware of the fact that he messed up. This song is perfect for that specific part of your breakup, where it hurts like hell if he sees you and misses you. He messed up for leaving and you hope it hurts when he sees you.
You’re So Vain–Carly Simon
If you’ve seen How To Lose a Guy in 10 Days, you may know this song. Or if you have a taste for older music, you may know about Carly Simon, the OG Taylor Swift. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, this song is decades old but literally is about multiple men who hurt Miss Carly Simon and takes a dig at them all in one. She sings about multiple men in the song to make them think the song is about them while calling them “vain” for thinking the whole song is about them. Iconic breakup songs like this one will really get you screaming along by the end.
Your Side of The Bed–Loote
Another breakup song that lets your ex know they aren’t special and that you’re moving on with or without them. This song is about a girl finding someone else to take where they used to sleep and do all of the things she and her ex used to do with someone else. Basically, a three-minute song about how everybody can be replaced no matter what your ex may have thought. Breakup songs like these are necessary to move on and remember that there is always someone else out there for you.
good 4 u–Olivia Rodrigo
I know that you are probably rolling your eyes at me for including Olivia Rodrigo in this mix because obviously. Everyone is listening to Olivia Rodrigo right now I know that much, but this song is a hit. I didn’t think an 18-year-old girl could sum up the feeling of hurting for someone who seems to have moved on just fine without you, but here we are. With a mix of teen angst, a hint of Paramore, and a bunch of lyrics that hit home, you are sure to relate to Olivia’s hurt with this song. You’ll also be screaming “like a damn sociopath” by round two of listening I guarantee.
FU–Miley Cyrus, French Montana
From Miley’s Bangerz album comes many great breakup songs filled with contempt and revenge. This song literally starts with the lyrics “oh, you broke my heart” and only gets better from there. It’s what you’d want to say to every guy that messed with your emotions and left you high and dry. Really, it’s a great song to listen to when your ex inevitably tries to come back into your life and you’re just not having it.
Be Careful–Cardi B
I love a good Cardi B song about being cheated on because not only is she a queen, but the lyrics are almost funny. For example, she hits us with the line “and karma for you is going to be who you end up with, you make me sick.” Hell yeah, Cardi, I agree fully. We all follow Cardi and Offset’s rocky relationship, and this song came at the prime of his cheating scandal. She talks about not trusting him and how she is the best he will get. This is one of her best breakup songs that urge an ex to be careful with your emotions because she could be doing the same thing he does and he certainly wouldn’t like that.
I found this absolute banger when I was watching Tana Mongeau on YouTube talking about how this song is about her and MGK, Megan Fox, and Mod Sun all sang this in her face at the release party she accidentally stumbled upon. Being a Tana stan, I had to figure out what song she was talking about. Coincidentally it is the ultimate breakup song about just wanting karma to come around to the person who hurt you the most. Breakup songs don’t have to be sad, they just have to explain how the breakup made you feel. This one is honestly so relatable I had it on repeat for a month straight, not kidding.
