JUICE by Lizzo

Standout Lyrics

If I'm shining, everybody gonna shine (Yeah, I'm goals)
I was born like this, don't even gotta try (Now you know)
I’m like chardonnay, get better over time (So you know)

Beautiful Scars by Madonna

Standout Lyrics

Don't judge me, just gotta let me be
Accept me, although I'm incomplete
My imperfections make me unique that's my belief

I think you're confusing me with somebody else
I won't apologize for being myself

Flawless by Beyonce

Standout Lyrics

You wake up, flawless
Post up, flawless
Ride round in it, flawless
Flossin on that, flawless
This diamond, flawless
My diamond, flawless
This rock, flawless
My rock, flawless
I woke up like this
I woke up like this

I Like That by JAnelle MonAE

Standout Lyrics

A little crazy, little sexy, little cool
Little rough around the edges, but I keep it smooth
I'm always left of center and that's right where I belong
I'm the random minor note you hear in major songs

And I like that
I don't really give a fuck if I was just the only one
Who likes that
I never like to follow, follow all around, the chase is on

Fuck With Myself by Banks

Standout Lyrics

'Cause I fuck with myself more than anybody else
(it's all love)
I used to care what you think about me
(it's all love)
'Cause my love's so good
(So I fuck with myself more than anybody else)
