Friday Let-Off-Steam Dance Party! This week: I LOVE ME

Hey girls, are you feeling yourselves this Friday?  Whoa, don't answer that literally.  You are a queeeeeeeen and you work hard.  So whether you've got that Friday feeling, or you need a little help getting there, stick on the tunes below, dance like WHO CARES WHO'S WATCHING, and treat yo'self to a little self-appreciation...

Let's start with a 90s classic to warm you up, with a great message and a briliant, diverse, so 90s video... 

None of your Business - Salt-N-Pepa

 

What's the matter with your life? Why you gotta mess with mine?
Don't keep sweatin' what I do, 'cause I'm gonna be just fine...

 

Right, now you're feeling fiesty let's BO$$ it out with the gorgeous Fifth Harmony chicas...

BO$$ - Fifth Harmony

 

Working for my money 'cause that's what my momma taught me
So yo ass betta show me some respect

 

Michelle Obama is SUCH a legend, I love her so much!  While we're celebrating queens, like you, let' cut to...

Q.U.E.E.N. - Janelle Monáe feat. Erykah Badu

 

She who writes the movie owns the script and the sequel
So why ain't the stealing of my rights made illegal?

 

(Did you see her in Hidden Figures?  Ohmygod, what a good movie)

Anyway, back to the dance party, keep slaying!  Here comes B!

Formation - Beyoncé

 

Okay, ladies, now let's get in formation ('cause I slay)

 

ARE WE FEELING OURSELVES YET?  Top up that wine glass, girl, it's FRIDAY!

Feeling Myself - Nicki Minaj ft. Beyoncé

 

I stop the world
World stop...  Carry on

 

Another awesome video next with a song you just can't help but dance about to, that's not just me, right?

Love Myself - Hailee Steinfeld

 

I love me, gonna love myself, 
No, I don't need anybody else

 

That was so fun!  My feet are hurting!  Let's slow it down just a little with Mary Lambert's fantastic video about self-acceptance...

Secrets - Mary Lambert

 

I know I'm not the only one who spent so long attempting to be someone else
Well I'm over it

 

Okay, that was so good, it's time to lie on the floor with a tumbler full of bourbon and listen to this last track and remember that it's the weekend, and you are feeling good, and this week you joined a squad full of strong women.  

Ahhhhhhh

Feeling Good - Nina Simone

 

It's a new dawn, it's a new day, it's a new life for me
And I'm feeling good

 

Thanks for joining the Friday 'Let Off Steam' dance party!  Come back next week for another musical celebration, and a brand new theme.

Psst - here's a Spotify playlist if you're at work and need to have a listen incognito.  Enjoy!  But don't be mad, I had to switch out Formation for Flawless because I don't think Spotify have been sipping that Lemonade yet...
