After you're past the "heartbroken, I'm so sad and all I want to do is listen to Lana Del Rey and other sad songs" stage, you will inevitably move onto the "pick me up, I need some motivation to start the new single stage of my life" playlist. Well, here you go.
These are some of my fav songs that helped motivate me, making me the strong, independent, happy, single person I am today. This playlist doesn't have a lot of sappy, regret songs, instead it's full of take charge-fuck you-I'm fucking amazing songs.
1. I Don't Fuck With You - Big Sean
Whatta classic. I mean seriously. Sing this one as loud as you can because it's a great confidence booster.
2. Love is Overrated - Shwayze
Very upbeat, definitely makes you want to get back out in the game and just slay. Because love really is overrated.
3. Bad Blood - Taylor Swift
This one just lets you know why you should never go back to your ex, because you're so much better than him or her. A good one to play if you're reflecting on the "good" times and reconsidering the break up. Stay strong and listen to this playlist instead.
4. Before He Cheats - Carrie Underwood
Nothing like wanting to go full Carrie Underwood on your ex's life. No shame.
5. Dark Horse - Katy Perry
You wanna play with magic? Boy you should know what you're fallin' for.
6. Fancy - Iggy Azalea
Because you're a fancy bitch. Get a guy to buy you a bottle of Dom Perignon. Let's get drunk at the mini bar.
7. Starstruk - 3Oh!3 Feat. Katy Perry
This is an old one, but a good one. Whether you have nice legs and daisy dukes or tight jeans and double D's, this song will make you feel better about yourself.
8. Ex to See - Sam Hunt
Shout out to all my country lovers. Here's to the fantasy we all have of making our ex jealous.
9. Me Myself and I - G-Eazy
Need I say more?
10. Sorry - Beyonce
Tell em boy, bye.
