Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and if celebrating the romantic holiday is not your thing —especially if you just got out of a relationship — then it’s time to turn to music.

In honor of Galentine’s Day (held traditionally on Feb. 13), Billboard compiled the ultimate Latin playlist to forget “el toxico” or “la toxica” (a.k.a your toxic ex) because let’s face it, music heals the soul. More than 40 songs form part of our empowering and unapologetic playlist that includes all-time classics such as Paquita La Del Barrio’s “Rata de Dos Patas,” Selena Quintanilla’s “Que Creias,” and Cafe Tacvba’s “La Ingrata,” as well as reggaeton anthems such as Nio Garcia & Casper’s “Te Boté,” Bad Bunny and Sech’s “Vete,” and Ivy Queen’s “La Vida es Asi,” to name a few.

But it doesn’t stop there. Kicking el toxico to the curb comes in every genre.

Grupo Firme, for example, can make you sing at the top of your lungs, from their Carin Leon-assisted “El Toxico” to their Billboard Hot 100 hit “Ya Superame.” And how can we forget of Alicia Villareal’s “Te Quedo Grande la Yegua”? “Hector Acosta’s “Me Voy” is the ultimate divorce bachata track, and El Gran Combo de Puerto Rico is all about freedom in their salsa tune “Me Libere.”

Some recent anthems? Becky G and Karol G’s first-ever collab “Mamiii” and Shakira’s “BZRP Music Session, Vol. 53” with Bizarrap, both form part of the mix.

Listen to this year’s Galentine’s playlist below to celebrate new beginnings.
