As much as we love our hip-hop, and dance songs where we’re tooting and booting it on the floor, sometimes it’s just nice to hear songs that uplift us. And we’re not talking the boring “koombaya” type. We’re talking about the soundtrack we put on when we’re getting our fiercest for a night out, or when we’re slipping into a bubble bath after a long day.
Recently, two tracks surfaced celebrating the beauty of women. The always fashionable soul singer, Melanie Fiona, mashes up movie scenes of femmes kicking major butt, from Pam Grier in Foxy Cleopatra, to Uma Thurman in Kill Bill, and everyone in between.
