To honour his new single, "Duvet Cover", Ashley Singh runs us through 10 of the best tracks to get through a breakup.
“For me, after a breakup, I like to really dwell in the sadness. It’s a little bit like self-torture for a while, but once you’re all cried out, things start to feel a little better. I like to let the clouds do their thing before the blue sky appears.”
"Jealous" by Labrinth
"This feeling will come, I say feel it fully."
"Glimpse of Us" by Joji
"Maybe you’re not over them yet and the next person is likely just a substitute."
