February is the month of love, with Valentine’s Day celebrating romance all over the world.
But in reality, Valentine’s often isn’t all it’s cracked up to be and contrary to popular belief, data shows this is actually the month you’re most likely to find yourself single.
If your relationship survived “Red Tuesday”, the Tuesday before Valentine’s when breakups peak, you’re not out of the woods yet. To make matters worse, the week after V-Day sees breakups skyrocket once again.
So if you’ve been unlucky in love this February, what’s the best way to get over your heartbreak?
Research shows that ‘music therapy’ can be the perfect remedy for healing a broken heart. One study found after newly-single people indulged their sadness with break-up anthems, they started to naturally make happier song choices.
To find out the best songs to get over a break-up, the data analysts at GoodLuckMate have studied thousands of tracks in global Spotify playlists featuring the words “break up” and “heartbreak”.
The wildly successful Scottish singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi and Disney actress come pop singer Olivia Rodrigo have been crowned the king and queen of heartbreak.
They say the path to true love never does run smooth and for our King Capaldi, his love life has been somewhat of a rollercoaster, if his penned hits are anything to go by. And it seems the unlucky in love Scotsman was defeated once again, as listeners favoured Olivia Rodrigo’s “drivers license” over “Someone You Loved.”
