'Firework,' Katy Perry
“Firework” is a textbook self-empowerment anthem, picking up where Christina Aguilera’s “Beautiful” left off. “People are coming back and almost adopting it as their own anthem,” Perry told MTV. "I hope this could be one of those things where it's like, 'Yeah, I want to put my fist up and feel proud and feel strong.'”
Sample lyric: “There’s a spark in you / You just gotta ignite the light and let it shine / Just own the night like the Fourth of July / 'Cause baby, you're a firework / Come on, show 'em what you're worth / Make 'em go, ‘Ah’/ As you shoot across the sky” —Jeff Royer
