Breaking up is hard — but we’ve all been there.

But the good thing is, when you feel like your heart just can’t make it another day, music can get you through the despair. Especially R&B. There’s just something about real R&B that evokes so much emotion — whether good, bad, ugly or beautiful. It does the trick when the pint of ice cream, rom-coms, and even revenge body workouts don’t.

Why does it help so much? Because there’s a song for your every sorrow. Angry your ex left you? Sad you both wanted different things? Realized your just not that into him? Circumstances or distance won’t let your love be great? There really is a song to get you through your feelings, no matter how complicated.

So here is a list of our favorite R&B break up songs that perfectly describes your broken heart. Trust us, we know from experience.
