The Break-Up Playlist: The Party With A Purpose
The emergence of divorce parties, as shown on Basketball Wives, proves that any occasion serves as an excuse to get your boogie on. A break-up can be emotionally draining time, full of self-doubt, hurt and anger. Studies show that exercise can help relieve physical pain that a break-up can cause. Instead of wallowing in your thoughts during spin class, sweat it out on the dance floor. Would you ever throw a break-up party with your girls? If so, we suggest these tunes to help you get over the hump.
Best I Never Had ~ Beyonce
There’s nothing more sobering than realizing your boo is loser. At some point in our lives every woman will relate to this song, but that’s still a reason to celebrate. Thank God you found the “good” in goodbye.
Never Gonna Get It (My Lovin’) ~ EnVogue
It’s an old school jam, but it still rings true. If this doesn’t get you and girls on the dance for nostalgia’s sake, I don’t know what will. Whoo, whoo, whoo!
On To the Next ~Jay-Z
Jay doesn’t talk much about moving on to another relationship, but it’s an unspoken rule that the best way to get over someone is find someone new. Can one song be any more appropriate?
You Gets No Love ~ Faith Evans
Ms. Evans breaks it down on why she’s shutting her ex down. “Play with my emotions, you get no devotion. You can’t even be my friend and you gets no love again. Whatever you do, it will come back to you.” We feel you 100 percent, First Lady.
Single Ladies ~ Beyonce
You’ve secretly (and unsuccessfully) tried to learn the dance routine in your living room and no matter where you are, you twist your “ring hand” whenever Bey sings, “Oh, oh, oh, oh…” . Now’s the time to let it all hang out. Flaunt what he’s gonna miss on the dance floor.
Deuces ~ Chris Brown
When this beat drops, you cant’ help but to get in your zone. This is perhaps the best break-up song ever for guys, but women feel it too.
F*ck You ~Ceelo
So what you drop the F-bomb a few times? Don’t let that stop you from dancing to a fun song. Besides, sometimes that’s just how you feel. It is what it is.
