These woman power songs make me feel powerful and confident. They remind me of the superwoman in me!
Super Woman by Alicia Keys
Alicia Key’s SuperWoman is my all-time favourite. It’s a song that empathises with the woman and makes you feel like you can. Some of the most empowering lines for me are-
For all the mothers fighting
For better days to come
And all my women, all my women sitting here trying
To come home before the sun
And all my sisters
Say yes I will
Yes I can
Who Rule the World the world by Beyonce
This song is a dance track but that does not take away from the empowering lyrics.
This goes out to all the women getting it in,
Get on your grind
To the other men that respect what I do
Please accept my shine
I am beautiful by Christian Aguilera
Sometimes when I feel less than beautiful I listen to this song. My best lines..
We are beautiful no matter what they say
Yes, words won’t bring us down, no, no
We are beautiful in every single way
Yes, words can’t bring us down, oh, no
So don’t you bring me down today
I’m every woman by Whitney Houston and Chaka Khan
It’s pretty old but it connects with me
I’m every woman
It’s all in me
Anything you want done, baby,
I do it naturally
Girl on Fire by Alicia Keys
Alicia Keys is my imaginary best friend. And this song is fire!
We got our feet on the ground
And we’re burning it down
Ohhhh oh oh oh oh
Got our head in the clouds
And we’re not coming down
I Am Woman by Jordin Sparks
My favourite lyrics of the song
It ain’t easy walkin’ in stilettos
But somebody gotta do it
Spend a day in my shoes
Then see what the hell I go through
It’s so rigorous
Doing what I do
Always on point
Hero by Mariah Carey
This one highly inspirational piece.
And then a hero comes along
With the strength to carry on
And you cast your fears aside
And you know you can survive
So when you feel like hope is gone
Look inside you and be strong
And you’ll finally see the truth
That a hero lies in you
Woman’s Worth by Alicia Keys
This song is perfect for reminding you of your worth. Because sometimes, we forget.
Independent Women by Destiny’s Child
It’s kind of playful and upbeat. Its fun , makes you throw your hands up and be happy.
My favourite lines..
Who would I want if I would wanna live
I worked hard and sacrificed to get what I get
Ladies, it ain’t easy bein’ independent
Can’t Hold Us Down by Christina Aguilera featuring Lil Kim
Every line of this song is fire. Plus, it makes you want to dance!
This is for my girls all around the world
Who’ve come across a man who don’t respect your worth
Thinking all women should be seen, not heard
So what do we do girls?
Shout out loud!
Flawless by Beyonce Featuring Chimamanda Adichie
Beyond the cool lyrics by beyonce, she features Chimamanda’s TED Talk- “We should all be Feminists.”
You wake up, flawless
Post up, flawless
Ridin’ round in it, flawless
Flossin’ on that, flawless
This diamond, flawless
My diamond, flawless
This rock, flawless
My rock, flawless
