We might've been a little too young to fully understand the lyrics at the time, but that didn't stop us from obsessing over the top R&B breakup songs of the '90s. Is it just me, or does it seem as though '90s artists knew more about heartbreak than those in the new millennium? There's just something about real R&B that evokes so much emotion. I totally don't get the same feeling that Mary J. Blige or Deborah Cox left when talking about cheating that I get from Kehlani. And that's just a fact.
Not to completely discount newer artists, but Bryson Tiller has nothing on Sisqó — and that's coming from someone who's a fan of TRAPSOUL. Bottom line, if I want to get over, or make sense of, a breakup, I'm whipping out an entire playlist filled with nothing but '90s classics. From Lauryn Hill's "Ex-Factor" to TLC's "Creep," I know there's a cure for my heartache somewhere within.
