1. Fifth Harmony – “Bo$$”
Fifth Harmony, a girl band on the rise, released “Bo$$” a feminist anthem, summer 2014. The track is full of snaps and plenty of attitude. The girls of Fifth Harmony instantly shut down any man not good enough for them. They sing about how they’re strong working women, and that they need a man who can handle of all what they’ve got.
Fifth Harmony name drops people such as Oprah and Michelle Obama, and talk about how every day is payday for them. “Bo$$” is the perfect track to play at a bachelorette party full of confident women. Let this track take you over and bring out your inner diva.
2. Christina Aguilera – “I Hate Boys”
Many music critics consider Christina Aguilera the voice of her generation. I mean, there are few singers who can match her vocals. “I Hate Boys”, a track from her sixth studio album “Bionic”, is a glam-rock anthem. The stadium sound of “I Hate Boys” is exactly what you need to take your bachelorette party to the next level.
“I Hate Boys” is about strong women, and how they don’t need a man to feel confident. Your bachelorette party will be a night for the books, so why not add this killer track to the playlist and get everyone dancing?
3. Little Mix – “Salute”
The ladies of Little Mix are not that well-known in the US, but they are megastars in the UK. “Salute”, the title track from their second album is a female empowerment anthem. The siren at the beginning of the track immediately sets the tone. Each of the girls feed off each others’ voices and it really builds the suspense.
The message of “Salute” is for women to know their strength and use it. Do not underestimate yourself as just a pretty face, and fight whatever enemy is in your way. The military drums and trap beats make for an interesting sound. The four members repeatedly yelling “Attention!” really gets your blood going. So ladies all across the world, get ready cause Little Mix is about to rock your world.
4. Nicki Minaj & Beyoncé – “Feelin’ Myself”
Two of the biggest names in music are Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé, and to say the internet exploded when their collaboration “Feeling Myself” dropped would be an understatement. These two women KILLED IT. Their confidence and attitude shines on the track, and we are all grateful for it.
“Feelin’ Myself” is all about confidence and loving yourself. If you need a little sassiness brought to your bachelorette party, play “Feelin’ Myself” and watch all the women at the party embrace their inner Nicki and Beyoncé.
5. Charli XCX & Rita Ora – “Doing It”
Charli XCX and Rita Ora take girl power to a new level in “Doing It”. The song is about how you wouldn’t be anywhere else than right here, right now, hanging with your best friends. Charli and Rita are friends in real life, and you can hear their chemistry when listening to “Doing It”.
The synth-pop sounds creates the perfect dance mood for you and all your girlfriends. As the track builds, the girls’ voices layer over one another, which makes it even more fun to sing along to. “Doing It” is one of those tracks that will instantly make you happy you’re surrounded by your best friends.
6. Girls Aloud – “Something New”
Girls Aloud is another girl band from the UK that aren’t too popular in the US. The girls have amassed a few #1’s and top ten hits in their country. Girls Aloud have a certain pop-rock sound that is all their own. “Something New”, the group’s comeback single after a hiatus is pretty damn amazing. The five women killed it with their vocal delivery. Each member nails their solo, and the dance beats circle around your mind, hypnotizing you completely.
In “Something New”, Girls Aloud establish themselves as the leaders of the pack, and no man is going to stand in their way. The boys better watch their back because Girls Aloud are bringing quality female empowering dance music to the table with “Something New”.
7. Marina & the Diamonds – “Primadonna”
Marina & the Diamonds’ music is great for any pop fan. “Primadonna” is playful and a bit cynical. Marina pokes fun at herself by saying that all she wanted was the world. The chorus makes use of an acoustic guitar creating a folk vibe, but the verses have a tinge of dubstep, and it creates an interesting contrast.
“Primadonna” is fun to play at bachelorette parties because it will give you a reason to treat yourself. Get an extra drink, dance a little crazy and have the time of your life with your best friends.
8. Foxes – “Let Go for Tonight”
Foxes, a singer-songwriter from the UK, is mostly known for her mid tempo and slow songs, but “Let Go for Tonight” is one hell of a wild ride. Foxes usually somber voice goes full throttle on the song. She creates a unique sound mixing fast drums and interesting lyrics.
“It might be a prayer,” Foxes sings “Or maybe a piece of conversation. Wherever we go we make a sound.”
The best thing about “Let Go for Tonight” is its carefree nature. It’s your bachelorette party! Let loose and have some fun! This song by Foxes will definitely help.
9. Beyoncé – “Run the World (Girls)”
Queen Bey herself is a proud feminist, and one of her most empowering songs is “Run the World (Girls)”. The song goes hard– combining dancehall, R&B and electronica. At its release, “Run the World (Girls)” received critical acclaim for its unique sound, empowering message and music video.
Beyoncé’s aggressive vocal delivery makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up. Some of the best lyrics include: “Boy, you know we smart enough to make these millions, strong enough to bare the children– then get back to business.” Beyoncé is essential for any bachelorette party. Why? Because everyone loves Beyoncé! Once again, who run the world? Girls!
10. Kylie Minogue – “Aphrodite”
Kylie Minogue is one of the biggest pop stars in the world. She has been churning out hits for almost 30 years. “Aphrodite”, the title track from her eleventh studio album is one of her most underrated songs. It has a booming chorus, foot stomping beat and military drums. Minogue’s voice has never sounded more confident than it does on “Aphrodite”.
She kills the chorus declaring herself fierce, mighty and an Aphrodite. Any group of girls out for a bachelorette party should add this song to their playlist because it will help bring out their wild sides. The song is great to sing along with too– I know from experience.
