Thankfully, Ciara’s social media pages are not on trend. And by on trend I mean they don’t look like the pages of a public figure who’s undergoing a very public and presumably messy breakup. And that’s a great thing. I know I’m appreciative of all those adorable pictures and videos she posts of her son Future.
But just because she’s taking the high road on social media, doesn’t mean she isn’t keeping it real in her art.
In a new song called “I Bet,” the “Body Party” singer is telling it all…in ballad form.
Check out some of the very telling lyrics.
I love you but I won’t be a fool for you.
That is just something that I wouldn’t do
I mean, I would stay if you could tell the truth
But you can’t
No matter how much time I ask
Is that your bitch over there?
Giving me the ugly stare
The one with the silicone ass
And the Brazilian hair
You ain’t gon’ respect me
Until I’m not there.
And then the chorus
I bet you start loving me, soon as I start loving someone else
Somebody better than you…
And y’all that was just the first verse. There are plenty more revelations in the rest of the song. Plus the entire track is laced with an undercurrent of shade as there is a Future sound-a-like throughout the song.
But just when you start to think this is just a song about her airing out Future’s dirty laundry, at the very end she asks, basically, why it had to be like this.
I hate that I’m singing this song
Because I love you
Yeah I love you
Right now it’s killing me
Cuz now I have to find someone else
When all I wanted was you
Dang! Even though Future and Ciara had a whirlwind relationship, she still believed that they were going to get married and spend the rest of their lives together. It sucks that she has to go through this. But luckily she learned the truth about his character before she walked down the aisle.
Take a listen to the full song in the video below.
We have all nursed a broken heart and we’ve all done it to music. When it’s time to face the truth and realize it’s really is over, here are some songs that will help you get over that ex.
Destiny’s Child’s “Survivor”
Love is a battlefield and when the dust finally settles, you do feel like you are a survivor because you came out on the other side of a terrible relationship. And Destiny’s Child’s “Survivor” is the perfect song to play to get pumped up. But former members LaTavia Roberson and LeToya Luckett felt like Beyonce, who co-wrote the song, was taking shots at them and it was a break up song about Destiny’s Child.
It’s interesting. Whenever we regular folks have relationship problems, we tell a friend or family member. Some of us write in journals. Others just keep that stuff bottled in. But for musicians, well, it comes out in their music. Sometimes it comes out angry (see past Kanye joints), silly (any Taylor Swift track honestly), or brilliant (hey Adele!). But a bad breakup can always make for an interesting track, especially when it’s about an ex. Here are 11 songs by 11 artists about 11 famous exes (and in one case, an ex-boo’s family member).
Kanye West – Blame Game
Yeezy just might be the king of messy tracks about his ex-girlfriends. On his 808s & Heartbreak album, “Say You Will” was about his ex-fiancée Alexis Phifer. And while that was an interesting track, West’s most epic breakup song might be “Blame Game” about Amber Rose. When he wasn’t calling her a liar, he was admitting that at a time he was satisfied “being in love with a lie.” And if that wasn’t enough, he got Chris Rock on the track to deliver a vulgar (yet well done) psudeo-phone conversation with a woman with a voice close to Rose’s who to answer every question about why she’s so dope at everything she does for her new man, exclaims, “Yeezy Taught Me.”
When you’re going through a breakup, sometimes you want to cry, sometimes you want to scream, and sometimes you want to break things or drive past your ex’s house, and there’s only one thing that makes any of those things feel a little less crazy: a complimentary song. These are our top picks for best post-breakup songs.
