Girl Power Playlist: 50 Songs For Badass Ladies!

Powerful Women Dancing

Music is a powerful thing. It can help us express feelings too big for simple words. In the lyrics, you can find a refuge from your own pain, and a moment of forgetfulness that can help you remember your own strength. From Selena Gomez to Lady Gaga, powerful women have sung these powerful songs to help you feel like a badass.

I have a playlist for every mood and moment, but this one is my favourite. The songs on this playlist are for women who are just discovering their own strengths and capabilities. It is for those days when you get your ass handed to you and it feels as if the world is laughing at your feeble attempts at being better.

It’s for all those women who have been told that they aren’t good enough for their goals. Play these songs when you need a reminder that you’re a badass, and despite what people may choose to believe, there is nothing you cannot do!

Each song is like a little power pill that’s going to get you off your butt and revive your flagging spirit with powers worthy of the warrior you are!

1. Rachel Platten - Fight Song

Hands down, my favourite!

We have all had days when we were too bruised and broken to get out of bed, this one is for those dark moments. This song will remind you that no matter how empty you feel if you dig deep enough, you’ll find the strength you need.

No matter how many times you’ve lost or been rejected, tomorrow is a new day and therefore, a new beginning. So, change your story. Write a better fight song.

2. Sorry Not Sorry - Demi Lovato

If you’ve changed your story and reached your goals, you’re going to enjoy the hell out of this song. If not, it’s gonna be the best motivation for you. Someday, you’ll get the chance to face your haters and show them that despite their pathetic attempts, you made it!

3. Independent Women - Destiny's Child

I am a fan of all independent women; Women who may not have everything but what they do have, they’ve earned on their own! This song is for those badass girls who know how to stand alone.

4. Fighter - Christina Aguilera

If you were ever told that you’re not good enough, you need to listen to this song! Even if you are not where you want to be, this song will remind you that you’ve come a long way. It’s a big F*ck you to all those who betrayed, hurt and humiliated you. We are all better for the pain we’ve been through.

5. Power - Little Mix

This can replace your caffeine in the morning, seriously! Boy, this song will get you out the door, and ready to conquer the world in less than a minute! You got the power!
