Why it will help: This song is the equivalent of Mariah Carey's "I don't know her" meme. In this song, José talks to the woman who broke his heart, but he literally can't remember who she is. The song touches on the all too common feeling of wanting to erase your ex from your memory and pretend like they never existed.

2. "Soy Asi"

Why it will help: When a breakup happens, we tend to blame the other person for literally everything. We stick to our guns, and convince ourselves that we did nothing wrong. This song is about your stubbornness, and will force you to take a good look at your mistakes, but it will help you move on from your relationship.

Why it will help: Sometimes, love just...dies. We're all human, and feelings tend to change, even love. This song is about that moment in your relationship when you simply have no more love to give.

Love can vanish into thin air, and all you can do is accept that it's gone.

6. "El Triste"

8. "A Esa"

Why it will help: This song is about how you gave everything you had to your S.O. and all they did was turn their back on you. The emotion behind this song is one of anger and frustration, but very real.

9. "Tu Ganas"

Via youtube.com

Why it will help: This song will remind of why you broke up with your S.O. in the first place. Sometimes, they can be manipulative and very toxic. While you give them all your love and attention, they can play you like Play-Doh. While you may have a good moment every once in awhile, the bad moments still outweigh the good. When a relationship gets toxic, it's best to leave it behind.

10. "Lo Dudo"

Why it will help: We've all experienced that terrible feeling in the pit of our stomach when we see our ex move on with someone else. This song captures the feeling of anger and jealousy. While the feeling may be irrational, it's also perfectly human. In the end, you're both better off going your separate ways...but, damn, does it hurt.

11. "Preso"

Via youtube.com

Why it will help: While love can be a magical palace full of roses and unicorns, it can also be a prison. In this song, José José compares love to a jail that's impossible to escape from. Love can be a good thing, but it can also be highly toxic.

12. "¿Y Quien Puede Ser?"

Via youtube.com

Why it will help: This song totally gets what it's like to be cheated on. When someone cheats, you can kinda tell. There are little things that simply don't add up. There's a shift in the relationship, that's very subtle yet distinct at the same time. This song talks about that moment when you find out about your S.O.'s infidelity, and the feeling of betrayal that's hard to live with. It's a sad song, but one you'll connect with on many levels.

13. "Una Mañana"

Via youtube.com

Why it will help: This cool Latin Jazz song will mellow you out. No matter what's going on in your life, everything is going to be alright. Today might be a little rough, but there's always tomorrow to look forward to.
