LL Cool J, ”No More”
LL gets his emo on with these heartbroken rhymes about the one who got away. Guest Ne-Yo’s velvety croon helps soften leaden couplets like ”We’re saying cheers/While we’re holding back tears.” BKyle Anderson

Ingrid Michaelson, ”Ghost”
Grey’s Anatomy‘s favorite balladress luxuriates in sadness on her chiming, mournful latest, wistfully haunting the halls of her own broken love affair. B+Leah Greenblatt
