"We Are Never, Ever Getting Back Together" by Taylor Swift
The happiest breakup anthem by far, Taylor Swift reminds us all that we're always better off without a bad relationship.
"Independent Women" by Destiny's Child
Long before putting a ring on it, Queen Bey was breaking it down with Destiny's Child, calling "all the women, who are independent... all the honeys, who making money...[and] all the mommas, who profit dollars." Because yes, badass women afford their own shoes, clothes, rocks, and cars.
"No Scrubs" by TLC
Every girl knows what a scrub is — "a guy that thinks he's fly, and is also known as a buster." Unsure of how to get the message "not interested" across firmly? Just say, "I don't want your number (no), I don't want to give you mine and (no), I don't want to meet you nowhere (no), I don't want none of your time and (no), I don't want no scrubs."
"Me & My Girls" by Selena Gomez
The title says it all: Gomez dedicates this driven jam to her best friends, who come out singing backup. "That's kind of what I've been experiencing — being single, going out, not worrying about any guys, just being with your girls," Gomez told iHeartRadio.
