The last thing you should do is anger a person who can write songs or has access to a studio because the resulting fallout will be gruesome. However, for those of you who choose to ignore that warning, this week’s Way Back Wednesday will show you exactly what scorned lovers can do when they are upset.
Instead of performing the typically sad breakup songs, artists such as Whitney Houston, Jazmine Sullivan and The Isley Brothers blast their former spouses for with the power of music. If you need help voicing your rage to a past spouse then watch some of the best videos addressing angry breakups below:
Brandy – ‘What About Us?’
Eamon – ‘Fuck It’
Fantasia – ‘Free Yourself’
Jazmine Sullivan – ‘Bust Your Windows’
JoJo – ‘Get Out’
Keyshia Cole – ‘I Should Have Cheated’
Mariah Carey – ‘Shake it Off’
Monica – ‘So Gone’
The Isley Brothers – ‘Busted’
Whitney Houston – ‘It’s Not Right but It’s Okay’
We’ve all had those moments of anger following a breakup or argument when songs like those listed above help us to focus our rage instead of running somebody over with a car. Yet, the most powerful moments aren’t always found in the lyrics. Rather, we often connect to a vocal run, wail or belt that expresses the exact emotion that we’re feeling, and only the very best artists know how to do it effectively.
