If other people’s judgment has ever made you want to scream and shout like Rex Orange County, this is the perfect song to add to your self-love playlist. “WHO CARES?” is all about letting go of what people think and just asking yourself Who cares?

jealousy by FKA twigs ft. rema

“I’m living true / Knowing that I’m better off without your blue.” Turn on “jealousy” when the drama has you down. Love yourself by shedding toxicity out of your life and freeing yourself from jealousy.
