"Heartbroken" is the most requested song ever on BBC Radio 1.[1]

The song was later rewritten to support boxer Ricky Hatton in his match against Floyd Mayweather.[2] It was also sampled by DJ Khaled and Drake on their 2017 song "To the Max".[3]

BackgroundEdit

Jodie Aysha wrote "Heartbroken" in 2004, aged just 15, inspired by her sister's break-up with her boyfriend.[4] After meeting T2 later that year, Jodie showed him her lyrics and he recorded them at his apartment in Leeds. In 2006, he remixed her vocals to create a song in the style of bassline, a music genre similar to UK garage that was popular in Yorkshire at the time.[1]
