Gotta Zayn

This is a stunt-on-your-ex playlist… or generally stunt-on-those-who-did-you-wrong. You know you deserve better and those who didn’t value your worth can exit your life. This playlist is filled with songs that are meant to pump you up, remind you that you slay and don’t need anyone bringing you down. Whether you feel like dissing that person, making them know you moved on and are thriving without them, or something in between, this playlist is for you. Don’t tolerate messy people in your life. You do you and do it well.
