10 Songs To Mend A Broken Heart

Music is the remedy to many of life’s battles. One of those battles is the inevitable heartbreak that all of us experience at some point in our lives. Fortunately, music can step in and take the role of emotional therapy and connect to our innermost feelings that we sometimes can’t express ourselves.

Somehow, lyrics can speak to our exact situation as if the songwriter penned the song precisely for us. No need for spending countless dollars on therapist expenses, let music give you the cure to a broken heart. In fact, there are some singers like Keyshia Cole, K. Michelle, Mary J. Blige and Jazmine Sullivan who sing primarily about heart breaks and can be our musical therapists at the price of only an album purchase.

So, after the endless tears, episodes of the ‘blame game,’ ‘what if’ thoughts, girl talks (or guy talks) and binge ice cream eating on the couch, try to free your mind and let music take you to therapeutic bliss. Getting over a broken heart is by no means easy no matter what anyone says, but it’s the way that you cope with it that makes all the difference. So, press play to this 10-song playlist and let the healing process begin.

1. Usher – “Burn”

R&B veteran Usher says it best, “let it burn.” You may dread the break-up, but ultimately you know it’s the best thing for you to do. Many of us stay in a relationship that we’re unhappy with and it all falls a part. It may bruise you to move on, but it will bruise you even more in the long run if you stay in a broken relationship. The sooner you let it go, the easier things will be. Usher blessed the music world with a classic break-up anthem with this record.

Toni Braxton Releases New Song ‘Heart Away’ with Birdman

R&B legend Toni Braxton teams with her alleged boyfriend Birdman for her a new track, “Heart Away.” Produced by London On Da Track, the edgy tune is an interpolation of Cash Money artist Dez Deshon’s song “Hardaway.”

“He took my heart away, bad man with good manner / Played me like I was a habit / Middle finger, he could have it / I used to dream of livin’ lavish / Now a girl’s a livin’ legend,” Braxton sings.

Birdman raps, “I got something worth more than money / Go to church, free the birds on Sundays / So much pain I took you away from it / When I pull up on you I’m stunting.”

Last fall, Braxton released her single “Deadwood” as the lead track from her upcoming album, Sex & Cigarettes
