Music videos have been for decades one of the most influential ways to send a message to the world. Nowadays when our society is more sensitive than ever before there are very important topics what needs to be addressed. Recently I have noticed how more and more artists in entertainment industry are using their visual tools(music videos) to send a message to support feminism, women… in all colors, shapes, religions, cultures. I will list down most recent statement pieces in commercial music. I find it so incredible and it is so important to send a positive and healthy message for younger generations. As a women you can be anything and achieve everything you put your mind on. Share your thoughts on the following videos.

 

Maroon 5- Girls Like You ft Cardi B.

Surprise new single with Cardi B, “Girls Like You,” on Thursday (May 31) and doubled down by releasing the accompanying music video that features basically every female celebrity in the game. (OK, not every one, but a good bit.)
Camila Cabello, Dua Lipa, Jennifer Lopez, Mary J. Blige, and Rita Ora are just some of the musically inclined women who appear. Actresses, models, and YouTube stars like Lilly Singh, Ashley Graham, Ellen DeGeneres, Sarah Silverman, Tiffany Haddish, and Millie Bobby Brown also make appearances, not to mention athletes, including Aly Raisman, Chloe Kim, and Danica Patrick. Political activists appeared too, including Somali American politician Ilhan Omar, transgender actress Trace Lysette, Muslim entrepreneur Amani Al-Khatahtbeh, and activist Angy Rivera.

Drake- Nice for what

Never one to miss a beat, Drake dropped a star-studded music video to go with the song, featuring a myriad of the powerful women the song aims to celebrate. Some, like Rashida Jones, Olivia Wilde, and Letitia Wright, are already household names, while most others feature some sort of prior connection to Drizzy. Jourdan Dunn, Issa Rae, Misty Copeland, Elizabeth and Victoria Lejonhjärta, Tiffany Haddish, Tracee Ellis Ross, Yara Shahid, Bria Vinaite, Michelle Rodriguez, Zoe Saldana and Emma Roberts… This list of women is so powerful that I’m not just dreaming about pajama party and endless conversation with them, but this squad of women is so diverse and they are successful all in their own individual way.

 

Jessie J- Queen

She wanted her song to be an anthem for all women, but especially women who rarely get to see their kind of beauty celebrated. “It’s about making women feel empowered and strong and loved and beautiful in any which way they want to look and feel,” she says. She hopes that when they’re singing these words to themselves, women will remember that they’re not just lyrics. With the drop of the music video, women can now not only tell themselves that they’re beautiful, but they can see all kinds of women — plus size women, women with Down syndrome, women with vitiligo, older women, Muslim women, and many more — celebrate their beauty unashamed.

 

Dua Lipa- New Rules

We can all agree that trying to get over someone who broke your heart can be difficult. So how do you bounce back from heartbreak? You can always grab a spoon and go for a pint of Ben & Jerry’s-we won’t judge. But you can also have a sleepover with your best girlfriends and realize you deserve better. That’s exactly what Dua Lipa did, and it seems to be paying off for her quite well. The video features Lipa and a group of women (who are actually friends) helping each other to get over the guys that broke their hearts. The video also does a wonderful job of including a diverse group of women, emphasizing the importance of representation in the media. But the most compelling element of this video is the friendship and unity that exists between Dua and her friends. The entire music video is based around the idea of women supporting women, and building each other up to be stronger.
