While we can count on artists like Rihanna and Future to get us in the partying mood to prepare us for the weekend, sometimes life calls for a good cry. In these situations, you can either listen to songs that will have you saying “boy bye” or songs that will instantly get the tears flowing from your eyes.

So the next time something reminds you of the person who broke your heart or the relationship you just can’t let go of, OMJ recommends you listen to these songs (all featuring our favorite NJ born or raised artists) to help you get all those emotions out of your system. Don’t worry, we’ve all been there…

I wanna believe in you
I wanna believe in you
But you make it so hard to do”
