The BEST Girl Power Songs

The BEST Girl Power Songs

JANUARY 23RD, 2020

Music has the power to move us, and to touch our hearts. Today we thought we’d share some of our favorite empowering songs. These songs about girls being themselves, finding their voices, rejecting the pressure to be perfect, and loving their own skin are the perfect background music for playtime, art projects, or just hanging out.   

Click the player below to play the Spotify playlist (note: you may need to log into Spotify to listen to this playlist for free), or scroll down for more info about why these songs made the cut.

"Try" by Colbie Caillat

We looooove the message in this song! This is a great one for girls that feel like they have to try so hard to belong, be popular, etc. The song does have one reference to being sexy (“Get your sexy on/Don’t be shy girl…”), but we think that reference to the way media pressures girls is a good conversation starter.

🎶You don't have to try so hard
You don't have to, give it all away
You just have to get up, get up, get up, get up
You don't have to change a single thing

You don't have to try, try, try, try…

Take your make-up off
Let your hair down
Take a breath
Look into the mirror, at yourself
Don't you like you?
'Cause I like you🎶

"Roar" by Katie Perry

This song is all about a girl finding her voice. In it she describes how she felt obligated to be quiet, and comes to realize that she needs her voice to stand up for her beliefs.

🎶I used to bite my tongue and hold my breath
Scared to rock the boat and make a mess
So I sit quietly
Agree politely

I guess that I forgot I had a choice
I let you push me past the breaking point
I stood for nothing
So I fell for everything...

I got the eye of the tiger
A fighter
Dancing through the fire
'Cause I am a champion and you're gonna hear me roar
Louder, louder than a lion
'Cause I am a champion and you're gonna hear me roar🎶

"Superwoman" by Alicia Keys

This beautiful, heartfelt song is about finding inner strength, even when you don’t feel like it.

🎶Everywhere I'm turning
Nothing seems complete
I stand up and I'm searching
For the better part of me
I hang my head from sorrow
State of humanity
I wear it on my shoulders
Gotta find the strength in me

I am a Superwoman
Yes I am
Yes she is
Even when I'm a mess
I still put on a vest
With an S on my chest
Oh yes
I'm a Superwoman 🎶

"Girl in the Mirror" by Bebe Rexha

This song’s about a girl rejecting the pressure to look perfect on social media, and embracing her true self.

🎶I'm sick of the likes
And followers, everyone's countin'
I'm sick of the lies
Smilin' but I'm crying inside
Honestly, I'm done with hating pictures of myself
And tryna be like everybody else

I wanna be like, look like
The girl in the mirror
Wanna act like, dance like
No one's watching her
I could try to be just like you
But I wanna be like me
The girl in the mirror🎶

"Nobody Ever Told You" by Carrie Underwood

This sweet song is about casting aside vanity and focusing on inner beauty.

🎶Take off all the makeup girl
Shine your light, show the world
Don't be shy, don't be scared
You don't have to hide under there
Let's throw away all the magazines
Turn off the static on the TV
Wish you could see yourself the way I do

Nobody ever told you
Nobody ever told you
You shine like a diamond
Glitter like a gold🎶

"Brown Skin Girl" by Beyoncé, SAINt JHN & Wizkid

From The Lion King: The Gift, this song’s about loving the skin you’re in.

🎶Brown skin girl
Your skin just like pearls
The best thing in the world
Never trade you for anybody else
Singin' brown skin girl
Your skin just like pearls
The best thing in the world
I never trade you for anybody else, singin'…🎶

"Fight Song" by Rachel Platten

This song is about a woman realizing what she wants and deciding to fight for it.

🎶And all those things I didn't say
Wrecking balls inside my brain
I will scream them loud tonight
Can you hear my voice this time?

This is my fight song
Take back my life song
Prove I'm alright song
My power's turned on
Starting right now I'll be strong
I'll play my fight song
And I don't really care if nobody else believes
'Cause I've still got a lot of fight left in me🎶

"Girl Power" by Haschak Sisters

In this fun song, young musicians sing about taking on challenges, standing tall and recognizing the power of girls.

🎶You could give me any challenge
I'mma come out on the top
I could run for miles no stopping
No I'm never gonna give up
I know who I am
And who I'm gonna be...
They'll believe it when you're standing tall
Gotta rise up every time you fall
Yeah I guess what we are telling you
Yeah I guess what we are telling you
Is we got
Girl power
Girl power
Yeah we taking over and making the world ours
It's girl power 🎶

We hope you enjoy these songs as much as we do!
