Heartbreak in a Cafe Playlist

Sometimes when you hear a good song about heartbreak, it hits you in an unexpected way. I made a Spotify Playlist full of songs quiet enough to play in a cafe. These songs are new releases from this year and they’re emotional.  

You also don’t have to be heartbroken to enjoy the music.
