Olivia Rodrigo – happier 

When it comes to essential break-up anthems, Olivia Rodrigo’s debut album SOUR is the gift that keeps giving, and ‘happier’ is no exception! Inspired by Ed Sheeran’s ‘Perfect’, this doo-wop piano ballad explores the struggle of moving on from a break-up, and wishing the best for your ex whilst hoping they are less happy in their new relationship than they were with you. Raw and relatable, this is a karaoke song that always has us singing our hearts out.  

Justin Bieber – Love Yourself 

He didn’t wanna write a song, but we’re so glad he wrote this one! Penned by Justin Bieber, Ed Sheeran and Benny Blanco, this catchy parting song to an ex and its interpretive dance music video has been stuck on our mind since its release 9 years ago. Having scored Justin his third consecutive number-one hit, ‘Love Yourself’ remains a firm karaoke favourite. 

The Greatest Showman – Rewrite The Stars

Over 12 million of you think this karaoke song is out of this world, and we simply have to agree! Combining acrobatics with romantics, ‘Rewrite The Stars’ is a standout track from the Greatest Showman soundtrack, and is a yearning duet that offers you the chance to show off your soaring vocals. So assign who’s taking Zendaya’s part and who’s Zac Effron’s, and get singing!

Richard Marx – Right Here Waiting

Wherever you go, whatever you do, we’ll be right here karaokeing ‘Right Here Waiting’! Written by Marx as a love letter to his wife, actress Cynthia Rhodes, whilst she was shooting a film in South Africa, the song was originally written to be sung by Barbra Streisand who later turned down recording it. Thankfully, Marx ended up recording the track himself, and the 80s ballad went on to become a global hit! 

Nicki Minaj – Super Bass 

This one is for the boys with the karaoke system! Appearing on the deluxe version of Nicki’s debut studio album, Pink Friday, this playful pop rap track and its bubblegum pink music video saw Nicki win her first moonman for Best Hip-Hop Video at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards. From its catchy chorus, to its bouncy bass, we can’t get enough of this addictive song, and neither can over 12 million of you! “Boom, badoom, boom, boom, badoom, boom, bass”! 

Maroon 5 – Memories 

Sampling Pachelbel’s ‘Canon in  D Major’ and basing it’s chorus on Bob Marley and the Wailers’ ‘No Woman No Cry’, Maroon 5’s ‘Memories’ pays homage to the memories of loved ones who have passed away, with the song being based on the loss of the band’s manager and Adam Levine’s friend, Jordan Feldstein. Stripped back and sentimental, this is a karaoke number that’s both sweet and sombre.

Birdy – Skinny Love 

‘Skinny Love’ may have originally been released by indie folk band, Bob Iver, in 2007, but Birdy really made this karaoke track her own. Released as her debut single in 2011 when she was just 14, ‘Skinny Love’ was Birdy’s breakthrough hit, and she captivated us with her haunting, emotionally charged  vocals. 

Mark Ronson ft. Amy Winehouse – Valerie 

Why don’t you come on over, and karaoke ‘Valerie’? We’re not surprised this Amy classic has earned a spot on our list of 12 Karaoke Songs with 12 Million Views (And Counting) On Sing King – it’s  a certified crowd-pleaser! And when it comes to energetic, nostalgic tunes, this one’s  irresistible to sing-along to! 

Queen – Love Of My Life 

Written by Freddie Mercury as a eulogy to his ex girlfriend and long-term confidant, Mary Austin, ‘Love Of My Life’ is a highlight track from the British rock band’s 1975 album, A Night at the Opera. A sentimental karaoke ballad of lost love, its heartfelt lyrics depict Mercury’s pleas for their lover to not walk away and desert them, with the pain of heartache emphasised by Brian May’s accompanying ornate harp.  This song was such a concert favourite during their 1977 News of the World Tour, that Mercury would stop singing it and conducted the audience as they took over.

Chris Stapleton – Tennessee Whiskey 

Originally recorded by David Allan Coe for his 1981 album of the same name, and a major hit for George Jones in 1983, Chris Stapleton’s cover of ‘Tennessee Whiskey’ saw this Country classic get an R&B influenced twist! A bluesy karaoke ballad, Stapleton’s breakout performance of the song at the Country Music Association Awards with Justin Timberlake catapulted the song’s popularity to new heights, with over 12.3 million of you singing-along to our karaoke! 

The Police – Every Breath You Take 

The Police’s and Sting’s signature song, ‘Every Breath You Take’ was a commercial hit, topping Billboard’s US Hot 100 chart for 8 weeks, and taking home ‘Record of the Year’ at the 26th Annual Grammy Awards. A popular choice for weddings, this karaoke song frequently gets misinterpreted as a comforting love song, however when you break down the  lyrics they’re pretty sinister. “Every breath you take, every move you make, I’ll be watching you.” – yikes! 

Charlie Puth, Selena Gomez – We Don’t Talk Anymore 

We love a karaoke break-up anthem you can bop to, and apparently so do over 12 million of you! Appearing as the third single of Charlie’s debut studio album, Nine Track Mind, this tropical-inspired pop track was produced all over the shop – with Charlie creating the guitar line during a trip in Japan, producing the beat in the Philippines and recording his vocals in Los Angeles, whilst Selena recorded her vocals in his closet! From its pulsating beat, to its too relatable lyrics, we can’t get this song outta our brain!
