Who Run The World? The 15 Greatest Girl Power Anthems

by (@TaylorFerber)


Not to brag, but being a woman is pretty awesome. Especially when you have these badass chicks that got your back. Beyoncé, Mariah, Aretha? C’mon.

Ladies singers of all genres have allowed us women to feel proud of who we are and just plain fab-u-lous. Whether you’re happily taken or you’re living the single life, there is no shame in rocking out to these anthems and embracing the power of being a lady! Boys, we know you can’t resist moving to these, either. It’s fine, we won’t tell. Now get a couple martinis, some friends, play these tunes and go on with your bad selves!


15. “Can’t Hold Us Down” by Christina Aguilera (ft. Lil Kim)

Xtina brought the female fire back! She and Lil Kim teamed up for an epic female empowering tune that’s still impossible to resist dancing to. Big, small, young, old- females unite! Christina and Lil Kim say so.

Greatest line: “You must talk so big, to make up for smaller things!”


14. “Whatcha Think About That” by Pussycat Dolls (ft. Missy Elliot)

About what, you may ask? Well, about pulling a fast one on your male counterpart and taking on the double standard roles of the opposite sex, of course! Staying out late, ignoring calls- two can play that game! Anymore questions?

Greatest line: “Tonight you gon’ stay home while I’m runnin’ the street!”


13. “Independent Women” by Destiny’s Child

Wanna know what we think about you, Destiny’s Child? You’re pretty damn amazing. The fabulous trio brought us this contagious theme song for independent women everywhere. Work hard, play hard, ladies! You deserve it. Throwin’ our hands up at you as we speak.

Greatest line: “I bought it, ‘cus I depend on me, if I want it!”
