Happy Galentine’s!


Jamilla Zuniga and Sarah Yang

Just because you don’t have a significant other doesn’t mean you can’t rock it out during Valentine’s! Friends can be the release that you might be looking for from the stress of romance, and we have just the playlist to commemorate your many friendships with!



Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It) by Beyonce

The playlist begins with perhaps the most recognizable anthem of female empowerment. Released in 2008, the song’s catchy lyrics, energetic melody, and peppy bass line make for the perfect Galentine’s opener. 

Good as Hell by Lizzo

Packed with positivity and self-love, this 2016 hit is sure to get you on your feet and moving. 

Love Myself by Hailee Steinfield 

This upbeat pop song preaches self-confidence while also providing lively, exhilarating beats. 

22 (Taylor’s Version) by Taylor Swift 

22 is the perfect song for girlfriends to do karaoke with and dance to. This peppy, lighthearted song should definitely be the first pick for a night out. 

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun by Cyndi Lauper 

Uplifting and joyful, this song draws its appeal from choir-esque vocals, a cheerful and beat-heavy backtrack, and a message on the value of female community.    ​

No Scrubs by TLC 

As the lead single from TLC’s third album, this song is a rhythmic, memorable tune that popularized the term “scrub” to describe a worthless, dishonorable man. 

I Forgot You Existed by Taylor Swift 

Just like any other Taylor Swift song, this song can easily get stuck in your head. Still, it is undeniably perfect for the occasion. Through bright vocals and a brisk piano backtrack,  Taylor reminds everyone of the great pleasure of getting over and forgetting an ex. 

Take a Bow by Rihanna 

Rihanna can certainly make your ex seem “dumb,” but isn’t that what we all need for Galentine’s? There is no arguing against Rihanna. 

Good Girl Gone Bad by Rihanna 

Relatable? Yeah, your ex missed out and you know Rihanna’s right.

NO by Meghan Trainer

A huge throwback from 2016, the song’s super recognizable lyrics and pop sounds are immediately stuck in your head. This song will make you feel like a bad-butt!

Bright Blue Skies by Mitch James 

Though filled with soft beats and chill vibes, the song remains steadfast with its strong lyrics—a melodious reminder that you’re better off without that ex.

Real Friends by PRETTYMUCH 

In this playful, upbeat tune, PRETTYMUCH encapsulates just what Galentine’s is all about—spending time with your friends and having fun. 

you should see me in a crown by Billie Eillish

Through a strong bass line and smooth vocals, this song empowers you, reminding you that you run your own world.
