"I don't need a man"
Ke$ha – Woman
“I’m a motherfucking woman baby alright, I don’t need a man to be holding me too tight”
This lyric says it all. Ke$ha has come back from one of the most prolific sexual assault cases of all time to release a Number 1 Grammy-nominated album and we respect her so much for that and this song for its bold message.
"So I tell myself, I do"
Mega Babe Dua Lipa
Dua Lipa – New Rules
“But my love, he doesn’t love me so I tell myself, I do, I do, I do”
As the breakout artist of 2017, and the #1 listened to female on Spotify (beating even Rihanna and Taylor Swift!) Dua Lipa became the first female to have a UK Number one with our song of the summer ‘New Rules’ since Adele in 2015. This song is all about getting over that breakup in your life and loving yourself.
"Friendship never ends"
Girl Squad Goals Spice Girls
Spice Girls – Wannabe
“If you wanna be my lover, you gotta get with my friends, make it last forever, friendship never ends”

"I Got the Power"
BFF Goals Little Mix
Little Mix ft. Stormzy – Power
“You’re the man, but I got, I got the, I got the power”
From the biggest girl group of all time to the new girl group dominating the world, girl power is officially BACK. They’ve even got the Man-of-the-moment Stormzy to tell the world “You can be a woman and a boss at the same time”, he faced some controversy from fans over this feature but was quick to tell them “Coz I rate Little Mix. More than I rate some rappers tbh”. Not that we need a man to tell us, but just to solidify
"Get back to business"
Beyonce – Run The World (Girls)
“Boy I know you love it, How we’re smart enough to make these millions, Strong enough to bear the children, then get back to business”
We could’ve picked the most obvious lyric in this song, as we know who run this world, but this lyric shows just how much we do. We can make millions, bear children and then get straight back to business. Don’t underestimate us, because you will be disappointed.
"What's wrong with being confident"
Demi Lovato – Confident
“What’s wrong being, what’s wrong with being confident?”
Quite simply; what is wrong with being confident? Take advice from Demi and be yourself this New Year’s Eve.
"I'm every woman"
Whitney Houston – I’m Every Woman
“I’m every woman, it’s all in me, anything you want done baby, I’ll do it naturally”
One of the original female empowerment songs from the original diva Whitney Houston here, with the chorus simply stating that anything you want done, we can do it naturally. This is one that will definitely get women of all ages up and dancing this New Year’s!
"Feel like a damn queen"
Little Miss Steinfeld
Hailee Steinfeld – Most Girls
“You know some days you feel so good in your own skin, but it’s okay if you wanna change the body that you came in, ‘cause you look greatest when you feel like a damn queen”
Hailee is known for her female empowerment songs but ‘Most Girls’ is our favourite and always makes us feel like a queen. Look no further for a song that tells you to be yourself and how to flaunt it!
"Your Ass better show me some respect"
Girl Bosses Fifth Harmony
Fifth Harmony – Bo$$
"Working for the money cause that’s what my mam taught me, so your ass better show me some respect”
Much like Destiny’s Child, Fifth Harmony are here providing lessons on how to demand the respect you deserve. Getting inspiration from queens like Michelle Obama and Oprah, this song will get you feeling like the true Boss you are.
"What you think about me"
Girl Gang Destiny's Child
Destiny’s Child – Independent Woman pt. 1
“Question: Tell me what you think about me, I buy my own diamonds and I buy my own rings, Only ring your celly when I’m feeling lonely, When it’s all over please get up and leave”
Girl Power lesson 101 here. This song, like us, celebrates “All the women, who independent” and this will be the one for the noughties girl in all of us. Don’t forget to tell that guy that you’re only calling him for your benefit - when it’s over, he needs to leave.
