Celebrities, singers and song writers, compare heart breaks to an outpour of their very dejected feelings in their most recent single. You may have heard Taylor Swift’s latest drop, “Look What You Made Me Do”, and while it seems to span every feud with her in the centre, from Kanye West to Katy Perry and references her affairs with Tom Hiddleston and Calvin Harris, we can’t help but track back to all the scorned lovers and all hit singles that came as a result of their nasty falling out.
Check the below list of some songs, musicians dedicated to their Ex:
‘Where are you now?’ Diplo, Skrillex with Justin Bieber
Justin Bieber wasn’t being subtle when he included a word bubble (in addition to the fan art seen throughout the video) that reads, “I miss you Selena” in his ‘Where Are You Now’ video.
Miley Cyrus ’Wrecking Ball’
Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth may be back together now, but during their split, Cyrus released her world famous single, ‘Wrecking Ball’ dedicated to the breakup.
Jonas Brothers ‘Wedding Bells’
Speaking of Miley Cyrus, remember when she dated Nick Jonas? Well, he sure does. Years after their split, he released ‘Wedding Bells’, which Cyrus believed was about her. Jonas later confirmed she was absolutely right.
No Doubt, Don’t Speak
Gwen Stefani wrote her hit song ‘Don’t Speak’ about her band member Tony Kanal while they were still both a part of No Doubt, and the former couple actually performed the song together after their seven-year relationship ended.
Selena Gomez ‘Love will remember’
After their much publicised on-and-off relationship, Selena Gomez released ‘Love Will Remember’ and it couldn’t have been clearer that it was about Justin Bieber, especially since the song includes a voicemail that Bieber left for her.
Rihanna ‘Cold Case Love’
Rihanna actually confirmed that her single ‘Cold Case Love’ was indeed about her abusive relationship with Chris Brown.
Justin Timberlake ‘Cry me a River’
Shortly after Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears broke up, he released ‘Cry Me a River’. Supposedly about Spears cheating on him, the video even features a girl that looks like her.
‘Dear John’ Taylor Swift
Dear John by Taylor Swift leaves no room for discretion, what with John Mayers name in the title and all. Swift insists the song isn’t about John Mayer, but since it Is about a John that treated her badly, we all know it probably is.
