Demi Lovato proves there's nothing wrong with being

Demi Lovato proves there's nothing wrong with being "Confident."

Lovato has emerged as one of pop's leading motivational stars, and that was never clearer than when she released her fifth album, Confident, whose title track is fast, furious, and all about self-reliance.

A boisterous pop anthem with an action-packed music video, "Confident" is Demi's declaration of fearlessness and a melodic warning that it's her game—and you better come to play.

Ariana Grande inspires you to be a

Ariana Grande inspires you to be a "Dangerous Woman."

The pint-sized pop star went full 50 Shades of Grande by kicking off the latest chapter in her career with her Dangerous Woman album and this slinky, slow-burning title track.

Its prowling beat is the perfect backdrop for Grande's four-octave range, as she purrs about testing her limits and taking control.

Remember when Sandy emerges in that skintight leather getup at the end of Grease and knocks everyone's socks off? That's what this song feels like.

Miranda Lambert admits to having a

Miranda Lambert admits to having a "Vice" or two.

An empowering anthem doesn't have to be loud, sexy, or dangerous.

Just listen to Lambert's "Vice," which is nominated for Best Country Song and proves there's also empowerment in visceral vulnerability. The single arrived after Lambert split from Blake Shelton, and it clearly mines the tough emotions she was facing amidst her divorce.

Even so, "Vice" finds Lambert bravely letting her guard down by acknowledging she's not perfect, she makes mistakes, and she relies on vices to keep going.

In other words, she's only human—and admitting that is empowering in a subtle but beautiful way.

Beyoncé demands that you get in

Beyoncé demands that you get in "Formation."

Beyoncé's most recent LP, Lemonade, which is nominated for nine 2017 GRAMMY Awards—including Best Pop Solo Performance, Best Music Film, and Album Of The Year—traces the arc of a broken relationship, but finishes with an astonishingly strong statement of self.

And it's "Formation," the final track, which is a rallying cry for women and a well-needed reminder to go hard, take what's yours, and slay.

Sia reminds you of the simple power of being

Sia reminds you of the simple power of being "Alive."

Oddly enough, Sia's seventh full-length album, This Is Acting, is comprised of songs originally intended for other artists, but ultimately landed the Australian powerhouse two 2017 GRAMMY Award nominations.

In the case of "Alive," she penned it with Adele in mind, but it's hard to imagine anyone else but the wigged singer/songwriter belting that defiant chorus.

Framed from the perspective of a survivor, "Alive" is exactly the type of rousing emotional ballad Sia's famous for, complete with a dramatic build that'll give you goosebumps—and bust out some impressive interpretive dance moves.

P!nk lights up the world

P!nk lights up the world "Just Like Fire."

P!nk's contribution to Disney's Alice Through The Looking Glass is fueled by the melodic ferocity we've come to expect from the edgy pop singer, so it's no wonder this hot track was nominated for Best Song Written For Visual Media.

In the song, she reminds us it's okay to be different and reiterates the same empowering message she's consistently spread long before her Wonderland sojourn.

We'll raise a glass to that.

Solange weathers the storm with

Solange weathers the storm with "Cranes In The Sky."

This standout number from Solange's third album A Seat at the Table sounds delicate and pretty, but its subject matter is anything but.

She sings of escapism, admitting that she tried to relieve her pain with alcohol, sex, music, and any other vices she could find. 

Eventually, though, she shook free, found herself, and came out the other side stronger. Exactly what you'd expect from a Knowles woman and exactly the reason why "Cranes In The Sky" is nominated for Best R&B Performance.

Rihanna claims her independence with "Needed Me."

Rihanna is considered by some to be the baddest in the game, and she lives up to that title with this trippy dance-house grinder; plus, it doesn't hurt that she's accumulated six GRAMMY Awards nominations this year. 

Over a cloud of hazy synths, RiRi brushes off a lover who needs her more than she needs him, and unapologetically asserts her own sense of self-empowerment.

Maren Morris finds religion in "My Church."

This Best New Artist nominee kicked off her breakout year with this ode, off her 2016 debut album, Hero, which praises the redemptive power of music.

Freely admitting she's a "sinner," Maren sings of music as her sanctuary and country radio as her religion.

Amen to that, girl.
