The 90s and early 00s were an amazing time for girl power in music – we had the best R&B/hip hop divas, unapologetic pop stars and awesome girl groups. These ladies gave us smash hit singles about freeing your mind, loving yourself and not letting anyone define you or keep you down.
So remember the good ol’ times and have a blast while listening to these dope ass girl power anthems:
