Mariah Carey, 44, and Nick Cannon, 33, sang each other's praises for years. But with the couple preparing to divorce after six years of marriage, what better way to get over a sad split than to listen to breakup songs?

Carey is getting over the end of her marriage by immersing herself in work, as she rehearses for an upcoming tour that is sure to include plenty of songs about relationships amid the marital drama. In July, she and Cannon sold their three-acre property in the Bel Air section of Los Angeles and have reportedly been living separately for months.

“At this difficult time I would ask all civilized people to please respect my family and this process,” Cannon wrote on Twitter last week. Carey and Cannon began dating in 2008 before making their relationship public. They wed within two months of their first date, and renewed their vows every year until recently. They have tattoos with one another’s names on their backs. The pair also has twins, Monroe and Moroccan.

While the end of another seemingly solid relationship in Hollywood is unfortunate, Carey is known for her heartbreak songs. Here’s a list of top Carey breakup songs to help you get through the end of her relationship to Cannon.
