You know that scene in 13 Going On 30 where Jennifer Garner sings along to Pat Benatar’s “Love Is A Battlefield” with a bunch of 12-year-old girls?
Yeah, we all need nights like that sometimes. Maybe not jumping on your bed listening to oldies, but how about dancing around your room in your sexy new lingerie while Beyoncé plays? Or hyping yourself up on the subway to your job interview by listening to X-Tina?
Next time you have a girl’s night or need a boost or girl power, don’t rely on Spotify and make your own playlist instead with these 14 songs to remind you how awesome being single is.
1. Love Myself – Hailee Steinfeld
Sure, this song is technically about masturbation, but it can also be about loving the rest of your banging body too.
2. Independent Woman, Pt. 1 – Destiny’s Child
Beyoncé was always all about being a single lady, even before her solo career.
3. She Don’t Wanna Man – Asher Roth Ft. Keri Hilson
For every girl who’s going out to actually enjoy herself rather than trying to meet Mr. Right.
4. No Scrubs – TLC
A nice reminder that the reason you’re single is because you have standards.
5. Don’t Go Knockin’ On My Door – Britney Spears
“Stronger,” is also fit for this playlist, but this old Britney banger doesn’t get enough credit.
6. Problem – Ariana Grande & Iggy Azalea
There may be moments when you wish you had a man, but this song will remind you how much of a headache penises are.
7. Dancing On My Own – Robyn
You’re well aware that dancing by yourself is much more fun than grinding with some creeper who approached you from behind.
8. I Look So Good (Without You) – Jessie James
Unless you’re dating a manorexic bodybuilder, boyfriends make you gain weight, it’s simply a fact.
9. Single Ladies- Beyoncé
A true classic.
10. Ridin’ Solo – Jason Derulo
In case you forgot how to spell S-O-L-O, Jason will be happy to remind you.
11. I Don’t Need a Man – The Pussycat Dolls
The Pussycat Dolls are way too hot to need a man, and so are you.
12. U + Ur Hand – Pink
If only it was acceptable to tell dudes to “keep your drink, just give me the money” in real life.
13. Fighter – Christina Aguilera
This is one of those songs that’s perfect for belting out to alone in your shower or car, thanks X-Tina.
14. Feeling Myself – Nicki Minaj Ft. Beyoncé
Just in case the first song didn’t remind you to masturbate, here’s another one.
