What have you been vibing to this past month?
Whether you are looking for some encouragement or simply in need of a reminder that you are strong, powerful and endearing; there are songs out there to fit any situation.
Here are a few hits that you’re going to have on repeat like I had these past few weeks.
“Good as Hell” by Lizzo
Even though at times we try to empower and uplift our fellow mates; there are times when we ourselves need a little boost to keep going. Lizzo got it right with this hit – Good as Hell. Whatever your “hell” is – get up, show up and make the most of it.
Overall, a very good song encouraging our sisters to not let toxic people destroy our self-image and ability to enjoy life.
Go on and live sista!
“Man! I feel like a Woman” by Shania Twain
Country music icon Shania Twain delivered a spectacular performance at the recently held 2019 American Music Awards and man, I’ve been pumped ever since. I don’t know if it’s the rhythm, but this song has a whole “you better get up and dance” kind of vibes.
Unleash your inner goddess, your funky dance moves and celebrate being a woman with this hit!
“You Make Me Feel (A Natural Woman)” by Aretha Franklyn
I went to a Banquet recently and the live band gave a whole performance of some of Motown Records artists – Sam Cook, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, and the Jackson 5. As a lover of pop and soul music, of course, I was enthralled. Then they did a rendition of the Queen of Soul – Aretha Franklin’s You Make Me Feel and now I have the song on repeat.
An awesome, honest and amazing song about having someone inspire you and encourage your self-worth. Oh, it’s a wonderful feeling to be loved!
“Remind me to Forget” by Kygo & Miguel
Now, we all have that one song that reminds us of a love lost, once upon a time ago.
This wonderful melodic musical composition deals with having a love so deep and good, making it nearly impossible to forget the memories. I’ve grown to accept that the love you have for someone may always remain; leaving a mark of heartbreak and a reminder that they are no longer what you need. I don’t know about you, but that for me is very much ok.
“Brown Skin Girl” by Beyonce
An ode to dark-skinned women to love themselves as they are and appreciate the melanin. With Zozibini Tunzi crowned Miss Universe 2019, a South African beauty who is an outspoken believer in #blackgirlmagic, the continued wave of support for black beauty triumphs. Overall, this song seeks to strengthen self-esteem in women who fit the titular description. We are here for it!
That’s my #girlpowerplaylist. Now tell me, which songs had you pumped this past month?
