Going through a breakup can be tough on anybody. The time you spent with your now-ex and the memories you created together is all for naught the moment you go your separate ways. But don’t bottle your feelings up – you should express all your emotions before you can move on. And the best way to do that is through music. So we’ve prepared the ideal breakup playlist for you to listen to while grieving over your lost love.
