Feeling a little down and out? It's time for a confidence boost. Channel your inner diva, and focus on regaining your inner strength. There's no better way to do this than by listening to music. The power of music can work wonders on your inner psyche, and make you feel like a completely new woman. Nothing changes your mood quiet like a killer playlist. Something about hearing strong women croon about their confidence is just so empowering. Don't worry - there are hundreds of songs out there that will help you get your groove back.
It's always important to not get overwhelmed by a setback. Everyone has them. Even Beyoncé has an off day (or at least, that's what I tell myself). Don't let a bad situation psyche you out. You're a powerful woman. Let yourself roar! Channel your strength by listening to some confidence-building tunes. Soon you'll be wondering why you ever doubted yourself. Wondering what songs you need to add to your playlist? Here are a few of my favorite songs that always make me feel like a queen. So, pop on your headphones, and remind yourself of just how strong you really are. Dancing around the house: required. Pants: optional.
1. Beyoncé — "Diva"
Put your heels on, it's time to work.
2. Britney Spears — "Work B*tch"
Because we all need to be working towards that Lamborghini.
3. Lady Gaga — "Born This Way"
This song is literally loving yourself for all of your unique traits. Mother Monster is the queen of self-love.
4. Meredith Brooks — "B*tch"
Don't ever apologize for who you are. Own your sass.
5. Fifth Harmony — "BO$$"
"Dreams don't work unless you do."
6. Kelly Clarkson — "Miss Independent"
"Mrs. Never Let A Man Help Her Off Her Phone" - PREACH.
7. Icona Pop — "I Love It (Feat. Charlie XCX)"
Nothing is more empowering that saying you simply don't care, and moving on.
8. India.Arie — "Video"
Have this song on repeat forever and always. It's so relaxing, and so empowering. India.Arie's voice is magical.
9. Maddie & Tae — "Girl In A Country Song"
"I ain't your tanned-leg, Juliet" is probably one of my favorite lyrics of all time.
10. Destiny's Child — "Independent Woman Pt. 1"
All the mamas' that rock the dollas/throw your hands up at me.

Being a strong, independent woman should always be your ultimate life goal.
12. Uffie — "Difficult"
Don't worry if I write rhymes/ I write checks
13. Carrie Underwood & Miranda Lambert — "Something Bad"
These women absolutely slay in this song. They'll have you feeling like the confident woman you are in no time.
14. Sleigh Bells — "Crown On The Ground"
This song is all about keeping your haters to the left. Don't let the actions of others keep you from being the fiercest queen that you can be.
15. Christina Aguilera — "Fighter"
Don't ever give up the fight. Tomorrow's another day.
