March is Women’s History Month and today marks International Women’s Day. So, it’s time to celebrate, dance, and rage with an all-female driven playlist.
Feminism is braided into pop culture and music. The femme fatale musicians of the ‘80s and ‘90s, such as Shania Twain, Bananarama, Destiny’s Child, Madonna, and TLC, made the feminist movement more mainstream. All genres were wildly represented from country, to pop, to hip hop.
Jam out to these curated tunes all month long on CollegeFashionista’s Spotify.
Here are a few hit tracks featuring new artists and the throwback songs you’ll never forget.
1. Independent Women, Pt. I by Destiny’s Child
Beyoncé Knowles, Kelly Rowland, and Michelle Williams slay all day in this iconic song. If you don’t know who Beyoncé is talking about in the intro, you need to brush up on Charlie’s Angels with Lucy Liu, Drew Barrymore, and Cameron Diaz.
2. Say You’ll Be There by Spice Girls
Zig-a-zig-ah to this classic pop song about friendship and love. The Spice Girls helped pave the way for female empowerment in the ‘90s. They demonstrated positivity and honed that every girl is unique
3. Don’t Save Me by HAIM
Sister trio Alana, Danielle, and Este Haim emulate girl power in the purest sound. These California valley rock stars are progressive because they feel insulted when people refer to them as a “girl band.” Haim’s much-awaited sophomore album will be released this summer.
4. CRZY by Kehlani
The former America’s Got Talent finalist sold out shows when she was only 19 years old. Now, at 21, Kehlani released her sophomore album SweetSexySavage back in January. She has already collaborated with artists such as Chance the Rapper, Post Malone, and G-Eazy.
