Breakups suck. You probably feel like you’ll never get over it — but you can always sing the pain away. Sure, you can listen to Ariana Grande’s “Thank U, Next” on repeat, but why not connect to your pain on a more cultural level. There is just something about singing your heart out in Spanish that cleanses a Latino’s soul. A sweet Café Tacvba song here, a heart-wrenching Chente song there can really do the trick. These tunes can hit hard but soon, you’ll go from 😭 😭 😭  to 😂 😂 😂.

1. “Enamorado por Primera Vez” — Enrique Iglesias

The line you’ll sing over and over: “Porque tú eres solo para mí, una mirada y ya caí, enamorado por primera vez.”

You’ll remember your first love and realize it HAD to end. If you’re singing along to the video, you’ll also be distracted by Enrique’s mole.

2. “Acá Entre Nos” — Vicente Fernández

The line you’ll sing over and over: “Acá entre nos, siempre te voy a recordar/estoy odiando sin odiar porque respiro por la herida.”

If your heart wasn’t already broken into a million pieces, listening to this song will definitely shatter it. Just add some tequila to cleanse the wound.

3. “Todo se Derrumbó” — Emmanuel

The line you’ll sing over and over: “Todo se derrumbó, dentro de mí, dentro de mí.”

This song captures the moment you experience heartbreak: everything’s falling apart and you feel like your heart is struggling to keep pumping. Más tequila, please.

4. “Me Duele Amarte” — Reik

The line you’ll sing over and over: “Me duele amarte así, hasta morir, lanzándome a la nada viéndote partir.”

Loving your ex was the best feeling in the world, but now it just HURTS — almost as bad as listening to Justin Bieber’s songs — almost.

5. “El Triste” — José José

The line you’ll sing over and over: “Que triste todos dicen que soy, que siempre estoy hablando de ti. No saben que pensando en tu amor.”

Sing this one enough, and you’ll be so depressed that all your friends will start calling you El Triste. Get it out of your system before they stop hanging out with you.

6. “Mientes Tan Bien” — Sin Bandera

The line you’ll sing over and over: “Mientes tan bien, que me sabe a verdad todo lo que me das.”

You’ll realize that at one point they lied to you. And they did it well.

7. “El Me Mintió” — Amanda Miguel

The line you’ll sing over and over: “Él me mintió, él me dijo que me amaba y no era verdad.”

And their lies made you as angry as Amanda Miguel’s hair.

8. “La Farsante” — Juan Gabriel

The line you’ll sing over and over: “Ya verás traicionera lo vas a pagar muy caro, yo soy bueno a la buena y por la mala, soy muy malo.”

Only listen to this one if you’re in the second stage of grief: RAGE.

9. “Ahora Quien” — Marc Anthony

The line you’ll sing over and over: “Ahora quien, si no soy yo, me miro y lloro en el espejo y me siento estúpido, ilógico.”

Don’t listen to this one if you don’t want to imagine them with someone else. Don’t do it. OK, fine. Torture yourself.

10. “Tu Cárcel” — Los Bukis

The line you’ll sing over and over: “Pero recuerda, nadie es perfecto y tú lo verás más de mil cosas mejores tendrás, pero un cariño sincero jamás.”

You know you’re not perfect, but they’ll never find someone like you. NEVER.

11. “Vuelve” — Ricky Martin

The line you’ll sing over and over: “Vuelve que sin ti la vida se me va.”

Listen to Ricky ONLY if there’s a chance they might come back.

12. “El Problema” — Ricardo Arjona

The line you’ll sing over and over: “El problema no es que juegues, el problema es que es conmigo.”

Every relationship has ups and downs, but if your relationship had as much drama as Arjona’s songs, the breakup was probably a good thing.

13. Corazón Partío — Alejandro Sanz

The line you’ll sing over and over: “Y quien me va a entregar sus emociones quién me va pedir que nunca la abandone.”

You miss everything about them, even their nonstop emotional chatter.

14. No Me Enseñaste — Thalía

The line you’ll sing over and over: “No me enseñaste como estar sin ti y que le digo yo a este corazón.”

It’s a tough, tough lesson, but one must learn to forget. If only it were as easy as forgetting Thalía’s songs.

15. Como Te Extraño Mi Amor — Café Tacvba

The line you’ll sing over and over: “Como te extraño mi amor, ¿Qué puedo hacer? Te extraño tanto que voy a enloquecer.”

You still miss them, but it’s OK, Café Tacvba makes EVERYTHING all better.

16. “Me Va Extrañar” — Ricardo Montaner

The line you’ll sing over and over: “Me va a extrañar, y sentirá, que no habrá vida después de mí, que no se puede vivir así.”

This song will make you realize that there’s part of your ex that misses you, too.

17. “Por un Segundo” — Aventura

The line you’ll sing over and over: “Y ahora por un segundo me ahogo en los mares de la realidad, por un segundo acepto mi derrota, te perdí de verdad.”

At some point they’ll find someone else and you’ll have to accept it.

18. “Vestida de Blanco” — Roció Durcal

The line you’ll sing over and over: “Yo voy a casarme, vestida de blanco, va a dolerte tanto, te arrepentirás.”

Because you’ll find someone else, too. Someone BETTER.

19. “Olvídame y Pega la Vuelta” — Pimpinela

The line you’ll sing over and over: “¡Vete! Olvida que existo, que me conociste, y no te sorprendas. Olvídate todo que tú para eso tienes experiencia.”

And you’ll be SO over it. Even if they want to get back together, they can’t, because you’re SO over it.

20. “Mi Historia Entre Tus Dedos” — Gianluca Grignani

The line you’ll sing over and over: “Hay una cosa que yo no te he dicho aún, que mis problemas, ¿sabés qué? se llaman: ‘tú.”

Even years after a breakup, this one can be a tearjerker. But if you realize enough time has passed and you’re ready to dance, you can listen to this version.

21. “Detras de Mi Ventana” — Yuri

The line you’ll sing over and over: “Detrás de mi ventana, veo pasar el destino disfrazado de asesino.”

You know what? Be glad it ended and you didn’t marry the jerk.
