10 Songs That Will Help You Get Over Your Ex This Summer

One of the best ways to cope with heartbreak is through music — trust me, I would know. Following my messy breakup last year, I found a new sense of self-worth after hours of SZA's CTRL album (literally). When you devote years of your life to someone, it's hard to even picture yourself with anyone else. Instead, it's easier to go back to what seems comfortable. Been there, done that. Whether you're exiting a toxic relationship or simply realized the person you were with just wasn't the one, it's important to be conscious of your worth and to especially avoid drunk-texting your ex!

Ella Mai's "Boo'd Up" might hurt to listen to the first couple of times, but I'm here to remind you that you grow through what you go through. There's no time for summertime sadness, ladies!

From Cardi B to Jorja Smith, here are the 10 songs you need on your playlist this Summer to remind you why you are the strong, powerful woman you were made to be.

"Supermodel" by SZA

Where was SZA when we needed her in high school? "Supermodel" is one of the many gems off her album CTRL. This is by far the perfect "I just broke up with my man and I've come to terms with the fact that I was too good for him" song.

For those random times when you want to just cry it out and need a reminder that the relationship is over (for the better) and you have nothing to lose but so much more to gain.
