It’s international Women’s day and I am celebrating by listening to some of my fav feminist anthems! There are so many songs out there about women being bad-ass. Regardless of how you spend the day, make sure you take some time out to tell the women in your life how amazing they are and jam out to some of the best, most empowering songs made for those strong, wonderful women in your life!
Run The World – Beyonce
I think this one speaks for itself, a true anthem about how strong women can be and that yes, we run the world.
Girls Just Wanna Have Fun – Cyndi Lauper
This one’s a classic for my party girls. And it’s true, we really just do want to have fun and don’t want to be bothered about it.
Girls Like You – Maroon 5 ft. Cardi B
This video features so many strong, inspiring women paired with a kick ass verse from Cardi. Maroon 5 is always delivering -it was the most watched music video in 2018!
Nice For What – Drake
Drizzy delivered with this one, because we don’t have to be nice for any reason and again the video is so bad-ass, featuring all sorts of women that inspire. “Call the girls, get em gassed up!!”
God Is A Woman – Ariana Grande
Again, the song title speaks for itself. And the video is beautifully done, with cool graphics and images to really speak to the message that God may in fact be a woman.
Work Bitch – Britney Spears
Britney is all about that hard work, “Work Bi*ch” is pretty inspiring when you need some motivation to get up and get going cause if you want to accomplish anything… you better work bi*ch
Confident – Demi Lovato
What’s wrong with being confident? A proud, confident woman can be scary for some, to me it’s freaking awesome. I’m all about that empowerment and so is Demi.
Flawless – Beyonce
Wake up? Yes, Flawless is the answer. Just listen to the song and you’ll feel like a bad bi*ch!
Independent Women – Destiny’s Child
I first heard this song when I was eight years old, and it’s impacted my life so much. Every relationship 50/50 and everything I have, I buy it myself. A very great way to be raised.
Miss Independent – Ne-Yo
This is the only song on my list by a man, but it’s a bop. I commend Ne-Yo and his song for praising business women who have it all together and did it themselves!
Ain’t Your Mama – Jennifer Lopez
Jennifer Lopez is a queen and this song is perfect for all of the women out there tired of their boyfriends treating them like they are their moms.
No Scrubs – TLC
We don’t want no scrub, scrub is a guy that can’t get no love from me.
Tightrope – Janelle Monae
Janelle is such a bad-ass and I love that she sends such awesome messages through her songs!
Don’t Touch My Hair – Solange Knowles
It’s a song geared more towards black women but that doesn’t mean you can’t jam, such a good message!
Masterpiece – Jessie J
Jessie J’s vocals are heavenly and she highlights how she lives a busy, tough life and it might be an uphill battle, but she looks good when she climbs.
Stronger (what doesn’t kill you) – Kelly Clarkson
It is very true, everything you go through does make you stronger.
Girl On Fire – Alicia Keys
We are girls and we are on fire. It’s a song simply about how beautiful we are and I support it.
Till It Happens To You – Lady Gaga
This song has an incredible message and almost always brings me to tears. A strong message about sexual assault, give it a listen and prepare to be moved.
Scars To Your Beautiful – Alessia Cara
Our Canadian girl has a lot of empowering songs to choose from, and this one is a song that I’m sure so many girls can relate to, including myself.
Man, I Feel Like A Woman – Shania Twain
We needed a strong country song on the list and what better to rep than Shania Twain and I love belting this one out. Try it “Man, I feel like a woman!”
I Was Here – Beyonce
I get goosebumps whenever I hear this song, it’s inspiring and makes you realize all of the amazing things you can accomplish throughout your life.
HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY!
