10. Single Ladies – Beyonce
Ahh, yes. This queen provides an uplifting record for you and your girls to shake your derriere
in them dereons to.
If you like it, then you should have put a ring on it. Don’t you be mad if you see that he want it. *does dance*
9. U Don’t Have to Call – Usher
Cuz Ima be alriiight toniiight! Keep that high energy from Bey-Bey’s Single Ladies, and ride in the car with your girls to this.
You don’t have to call. It’s ok girl, I’ma be alright tonight.
8. Fighter – Christina Aguilera
You might as well add this one to your work-out playlist. Xtina’s fierce “Fighter” record makes you wanna
punch your ex in the face run a few miles and helps you realize that you really are stronger than you think.
“Makes me that much stronger// Makes me work a little bit harder// It makes me that much wiser// So thanks for making me a fighter”
7. Go Ahead – Alicia Keys
Angry? It’s cool. Listen to Alicia Key’s “Go Ahead”, off her As I Am album. Her man did her wrong, she put it in a song, then made millies off it. Who’s angry now?
Go ‘head, gon’ get up outta here// Go head baby. You knew you was wrong// you knew all along must be crazy// if u think ima fall for this anymore// everybody say noOo.
6. Marvin’s Room – Jojo
Still fired-up? Sing along to one of our favorite songs, Jojo’s rendition of Marvin’s Room.
I’m just saying, you could do better// Always turned you out every time we were together// Once you had the best, you can’t do better// Baby, I’m the best so you can’t do better.
Something cool is in my cup// Ima send a sexy picture// to remind you what you’re giving up.
5. Survivor – Destiny’s Child
Don’t worry, it’s not the end of the world. That happened on December 21… and we’re still here! Bey, Kelly & Michelle remind you that you’ll be just fine. In fact — you’re better than you were before!
“When you crossed me, you lost me// If I was guarding Derrick Rose, I would be more understanding// But, you aint Derrick Rose// You was my number one, but uhh you ain’t Derrick Rose// Tryna make my point again, you aint Derrick Rose// You just on some bullshit, you aint Derrick Rose.”
“Now that you’re out of my life//I’m so much better// You thought that I’d be weak without you// But I’m stronger// You thought that I’d be broke without you// But I’m richer”
4. Doing It Wrong – Drake ft. Stevie Wonder
Yeah, we’re counting it as a slow jam. Our favorite line pretty much explains the whole reason we like this song. Just because you’re heart broken, doesn’t mean you gotta succumb to the sad ways our generation views relationships.
“We live in a generation of, not being in love// And not being in together// But we sure make it seem like we’re together// because we’re scared to see each other with somebody else”
The whole damn song.
3. Irreplaceable – Beyonce
Originally written by Ne-Yo, this song speaks to both sexes and reminds you that there’s a million more fishes in the sea.
“You must not know bout me// I can have another you by tomorrow// So don’t you, for a second, get to thinking you’re irreplaceable.” TELL ‘EM GUHH!
2. Carry On – Ne-Yo
Off his latest,
amazing R.E.D album, Ne-Yo puts his foot down and tells his triflin’ girl to get to steppin’
“So you found another reason to go do what you do?// Well I ran outta reasons to sit here waiting on you.”
1. Best Thing I Never Had – Beyonce
Oh, you thought I was gonna forget this song? The ultra-mega-I’m-getting-over-yo-ass-song of 2012?! Hit the replay button, and thank God you dodged that bullet.
“You showed yo’ ass and I saw the real you. Thank God you blew it// Thank God I dodged that bullet// I’m so over you, so baby good looking out”
The whole damn song.

CRAP list! Too much Beyonce. Where’s Lauryn Hill, Whitney, Mary, Jazmine???
I so needed this list thank you.
I thought everything was fine in my relationship until he explained to me he wanted out and that it was him and not me. I couldn’t understand because I thought everything was fine and that we were in love. Then I decided to look into this further and I looked at his Facebook account and then I saw the other woman that he was involved with, I was devastated and cried.The problem for me was that I still loved Joel and I believed in my heart that he was my soul mate. i tried to work things out but after 5 years in what I thought was the best and greatest romance of my life Joel didn’t want me and in fact he was planning to leave and during that time there was a lot of arguing that made matters worse. I had no idea of what else to do and so i took a chance at firstname.lastname@example.org with the help of a spell and to cut the long story short, he came back and set things right again and now we are living happily together. If you ever need help in relationship issues, contact him on email@example.com, Prophet Mike is his name.
