If there's a song that perfectly describes what happens after a breakup, it's Charlie Puth and Selena Gomez's "We Don't Talk Anymore."

If you're clueless about breakups (or being ghosted, maybe?)—lucky you!—Charlie's newest music video nails the whole thing. As we all know, to say that breakups are hard is an understatement.
