"Broken Hearts" is a song by American hip-hop artist b-Rabbit which was released as a non-album single on November 18th, 2011. The song was written about Antonio Reyes, a freshman who drowned in a local high school pool in b-Rabbit hometown of Wenatchee, Washington. In 2012, a version of the song was annouced as the first official single off of the then-upcoming Trials & Tribulations.
On November 17, 2011, Antonio Reyes, a freshman at Wenatchee High School, drowned during a swimming class at the school. Upon hearing this news b-Rabbit quickly decided to pen "Broken Hearts" as a memorial song for the boy who was the same as himself. Written, recorded, and mixed in only one day, the single was released the following day on the 18th.
The official music video was released on YouTube and the official b-Rabbit Facebook page on December 17th, one month after Antonio's death. The music video was a slideshow featuring images of Antonio, his home, the Wenatchee Valley, and some images that pertain directly to the song's lyrics.
"Broken Hearts (R&B Remix)" was released on January 5, 2012 on YouTube and ReverbNation as a promotional piece. The song featured a new R&B influenced beat and featured vocals from the late Michael Jackson via a sample of his 1993 song "Gone Too Soon."
On March 3, 2012, b-Rabbit annouced that the remix and the original would be featured on the then-upcoming Trials & Tribulations. The final album ended up featuring a version of the song unlike the two previously released and as of 2015, neither version has been featured on an album.
"Broken Hearts (Album Version)" was released on January 19, 2013 as the first official single off of Trials & Tribulationsand featured vocals from singer Jinyeon. The single was released free of charge on Mixconnect.com.
