Vamp Tracks: Women in R&B

There are so many empowering women who have conquered R&B and soul music – Beyonce often being the most widely recognized woman in the genre. The genre has no shortage of liberating music. Take “Survivor” by Destiny’s Child: a reminder that we should be working hard and not giving up on our dreams, or TLC’s “No Scrubs” which reminds women to take a stand against guys cat calling and trying to pick them up.

The importance of listening to music that makes you happy, confident and makes you feel good cannot be stressed enough. R&B is an easy genre to listen to if you’re feeling less than awesome. I’ve compiled a few R&B songs that I love listening to. A few of them are empowering, some more alternative, and a couple are more bluesy and funky. I hope you enjoy these songs as much as I do. Feel free to leave any other amazing Soul or R&B songs in the comments.
