Yuna's new song is her most beautiful yet

'Broke Her' has us in pieces. But we'll be alright

She played a secret gig in KL last night, and then this morning our favourite girl, Yuna, dropped a new song that has, quite frankly, left all of us here at ELLE a little stunned. In a good way. 

Called Broke Her, the song features the same 'Vibez' sample used in Drake's 0-100, although here it's slower, sparser and yep, a whole lot sadder. Broke Her is a post-breakup tune from a girl who's been left for someone else and doesn't really get why. "I always thought maybe I could be your wife," Yuna sings while laying on the floor amid broken glass, vintage cameras and a copy of Patti Smith's Just Kids. And we cry. But don't worry, she rallies round. He "broke her but she'll be alright." Love this girl.
