Diss Tracks

From BBC:

You've been through a break-up. You're experiencing all the emotions - rage, grief, sadness and tears.

Coping strategies? You might binge a show, binge fast food, or unload your emotions into your private diary.

Or, if you're a world-famous musician, you might decide to record a scorching diss track taking aim at your ex.

Then, upload it to the internet, stand back and watch the sparks fly.

At least, that's what Shakira did with Out of Your League, her song about footballer ex Gerard Piqué which has broken YouTube records.

And she's not alone. Fans are convinced Flowers, by Miley Cyrus, is about her ex Liam Hemsworth.


The main reason for the genre's popularity is probably obvious: most of us get dumped (or do the dumping) at some point in our life.

It hurts. We can relate.
