Sometimes, we all feel a little down about ourselves. I’ve compiled a playlist of my favorite songs of empowerment sung by women to serve as a reminder of how amazing we truly are.

1. Run the World (Girls) – Beyonce

“My persuasion can build a nation
Endless power, with our love we can devour
You’ll do anything for me
Who run the world? Girls! Girls!”

2.  That’s My Girl – Fifth Harmony

“Destiny said it, you got to get up and get it
Get mad independent and don’t you ever forget it
Got some dirt on your shoulder, then let me brush it off for ya
If you’re feeling me, put your five high
That’s my girl”

3. Born This Way – Lady Gaga

“I’m beautiful in my way
Cause God makes no mistakes
I’m on the right track, baby
I was born this way”

4. Bright – Kehlani

“You are what you choose to be
It’s not up to no one else
So be great, be kind
Don’t let them dim your light
A woman like the sun should always stay bright”

5. Only Girl – Kali Uchis (feat. Steve Lacy + Vince Staples)

“Actions speak louder than words
Go and show me what I’ve heard
If you don’t know, you’re gonna learn
Just what I deserve”

6. No Scrubs – TLC

“So no, I don’t want your number
No, I don’t wanna give you mine and
No, I don’t wanna meet you nowhere
No, I don’t want none of your time”

7. Survivor – Destiny’s Child

“Thought I couldn’t breathe without you, I’m inhaling
You thought I couldn’t see without you, perfect vision
You thought I couldn’t last without you, but I’m lastin’
“You thought that I would die without you, but I’m livin’
Thought that I would fail without you, but I’m on top
Thought it would be over by now, but it won’t stop
Thought that I would self destruct, but I’m still here
Even in my years to come, I’m still gon’ be here”

8. ***Flawless – Beyonce (feat. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie)

“Feminist: a person who believes in the social, political
And economic equality of the sexes”

9. BO$$ – Fifth Harmony

“You say that you a baller and I see you tryna holla
But that ain’t how I was brought up, next
Working for the money cause that’s what my mama taught me
So your a** better show me some respect”

10. Marry The Night – Lady Gaga

“I’m gonna marry the night
I’m not gonna cry anymore
I’m gonna marry the night
Leave nothing on these streets to explore”
