Let’s be honest, we all have those days where nothing seems to go right. As soon as we wake up, havoc ensues. We have the worst bad hair day in the history of bad hair days. Our clothes just don’t fit the way we want them to. It all goes downhill from there, and consequently our self-esteem is pretty low.
Want a quick fix to your bad day? Believe it or not, it’s been scientifically proven that music can boost your self-confidence. Just listening to music can put a smile on your face and transform you into your most confident self.
I’ve compiled the perfect pick-me-up playlist: a list of nine songs that are guaranteed to boost your confidence. These songs are performed by ladies, for ladies, and have one common goal: to remind you how strong, beautiful, and special you really are.
1. “Run The World (Girls)” by Beyoncé
Boy I know you love it / How we’re smart enough to make these millions / Strong enough to bear the children / Then get back to business
2. “Shake It Out” by Florence + The Machine
And it’s hard to dance with a devil on your back / And given half the chance would I take any of it back? / It’s a fine romance, but it’s left me so undone / It’s always darkest before the dawn
3. “Love Myself” by Hailee Steinfeld
Gonna love myself, no, I don’t need anybody else / (I love me) / Can’t help myself, no, I don’t need anybody else / Anytime, day or night / (I love me)
4. “BO$$” by Fifth Harmony
C-O-N-F-I-D-E-N-T / That’s me, I’m confident / Don’t want yo compliments / Use common sense / I’m on my Michelle Obama-shhhhhhhhh
5. “On My Own” by Miley Cyrus
I’ll find a way, yeah / And I’ll do it on my own/ Hey! / I can do anything, yeah / And I’ll do it on my own / I will get it done with the help from no one
6. “Feeling Myself (ft. Beyoncé)” by Nicki Minaj
Changed the game with that digital drop / Know where you was when that digital popped / I stopped the world / Male or female, it make no difference / I stop the world, world stop… / Carry on
7. “Rolling In The Deep” by Adele
And I’m gonna make your head burn / Think of me in the depths of your despair / Make a home down there / As mine sure won’t be shared

We’ve all been played, we all get hurt / Just take the pain and let him burn / And you know that in time you will find / That they always come back, yeah they always come back
9. “Who Says” by Selena Gomez
Who says you’re not perfect? / Who says you’re not worth it? / Who says you’re the only one that’s hurting? / Trust me, that’s the price of beauty
