In accordance with changing ideals and the increasing independency of women around the world, we present to you 10 of the most uplifting songs that’ll make you feel more confident and powerful as a woman!
1. Who says – Selena Gomez
Who says, who says you’re not perfect?
Who says you’re not worth it?
Who says you’re the only one that’s hurtin’?
Trust me, that’s the price of beauty
Who says you’re not pretty?
Who says you’re not beautiful?
2. Red Orange Yellow Flicker Beat – Lorde
But I got my fingers laced together and I made a little prison
And I’m locking up everyone who ever laid a finger on me
I’m done with it
3. Fly – Nicki Minaj (feat Rihanna)
I came to win, to fight, to conquer, to thrive
I came to win, to survive, to prosper, to rise
4. Fight Song – Rachel Platten
Starting right now I’ll be strong
I’ll play my fight song
And I don’t really care if nobody else believes
‘Cause I’ve still got a lot of fight left in me
5. Love Myself – Hailee Seinfeild
I’m gonna put my body first
And love me so hard ’til it hurts
I know how to scream out the words
(I love me)
Gonna love myself, no, I don’t need anybody else
6. Brave – Sara Bareilles
Say what you wanna say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave
7. Shake it out – Florence and the Machine
And every demon wants his pound of flesh
But I like to keep some things to myself
I like to keep my issues drawn
It’s always darkest before the dawn
8. Try – ColbieCaillat
You don’t have to try so hard
You don’t have to give it all away
You just have to get up, get up, get up, get up
You don’t have to change a single thing
9. Satellite Call – Sara Bareilles
You may find yourself in the dead of night
Lost somewhere up in the great big beautiful sky
You were all just perfect little satellites
Spinning round and round this broken earthly life
10. Doubt – Mary J. Blige
You said I’d never be a leader
You said I’d never wear a crown
If I wanted to be someone
I should learn to settle down
11. Bonus: Salute – Little Mix
Sisters we are everywhere
Warriors, your country needs you
If you’re ready ladies, better keep steady
Ready, aim, shoot
Don’t need ammunition, on a mission
And we’ll hit you with the truth
Divas, queens, we don’t need no man, salute!
