An energetic, pop anthem from Sia about holding your head up high and showing those who don’t believe in you what you’re made of. 

“I put my armor on, show you how strong I am

I put my armor on, I’ll show you that I am

I’m unstoppable

I’m a Porsche with no brakes

I’m invincible

Yeah, I win every single game

I’m so powerful”

“homecoming queen?” by Kelsea Ballerini

Ballerini’s artistry shines in this power ballad about knowing that it’s okay to feel sad and you don’t have to be perfect all the time. 

“But what if I told you the world wouldn’t end

If you started showing what’s under your skin

What if you let ’em all in on the lie?

Even the homecoming queen cries”

“Power” by Little Mix

This top charting girl group continued to make a name for themselves with this girl power single that went viral after its release.

“You should know, I’m the one who’s in control

I’ll let you come take the wheel, long as you don’t forget

Who got the power?

I got the, I got the power”

“Most Girls” by Hailee Steinfeld

Most Girls” is Steinfeld’s female empowerment anthem, lifting up women with any body type, fashion preference, sexuality, or lifestyle. Each verse explores different things women prefer, celebrating each and every one of them.

“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

We’re all just playing a game in a way, tryna win at life

“Most girls are smart and strong and beautiful

Most girls, work hard, go far, we are unstoppable

Most girls, our fight to make every day”

“BREAK MY SOUL” by Beyoncé

Beyoncé’s first single from her seventh studio album Renaissance is a beat-filled dance bop that perfectly encapsulates Beyoncés determination in the music industry.

“I’m lookin’ for motivation

I’m lookin’ for a new foundation, yeah

And I’m on that new vibration

I’m buildin’ my own foundation, yeah

Hold up, oh, baby, baby

You won’t break my soul”

“It Is What It Is” by Jenna Raine

Jenna Raine’s playful pop song explores acceptance with whatever life throws your way. It’s okay to not understand something or be “okay” with everything.

“Hey! Lemons make lemonade

Flowers bloom in the rain

Growing up is a pain

And it is what it is

Okay! It’s not the end of the world

There’s always light where it burns

Just remember the words

And it goes like this

It is what it is, what it is, what it is, what it is”

“Just Like Fire” by P!nk

“So look, I came here to run it 

Just ’cause nobody’s done it 

Y’all don’t think I can run it

But look, I’ve been here, I’ve done it

Impossible? Please

Watch, I do it with ease

You just gotta believe

Come on, come on with me”
