Our favorite female artists thrived in 2019, and gave us one amazing banger after another. The year behind us gave us several amazing girl power anthems we listened to on repeat, and these five made the biggest impression.

Selena Gomez – Look At Her Now

Selena Gomez took the world by storm when she dropped not one, but two self-love anthems back in October, and embraced both the beauty and the hearbreak of letting go of the past.

Bebe Rexha – Not 20 Anymore

2019 gave us more empowering songs than we can count, but “Not 20 Anymore” is one of the very few that celebrates the grace and confidence that come with growing older.

Lizzo – Juice

Any of Lizzo’s songs falls under the category of girl power anthem, but the line “if I’m shinin’, everybody gonna shine” will forever remind us how important it is to lift others up, as well.

Zedd & Kehlani – Good Thing

After hearing countless songs about love and heartbreak, Kehlani finally gave us one that says it’s totally fine to be single and fully enjoy your own company.

Halsey – Nightmare

Halsey’s “Nightmare” is one of the most unique girl power songs we’ve heard in 2019, because it celebrates the feminine rage in a way we haven’t seen in any other track this year.
