“Girl,” Maren Morris
Maren Morris became the first woman in seventeen months to top the country charts in July 2019 with “Girl,” the lead single off her album of the same name. While the song’s lyrics point towards a message Maren is trying to communicate to someone else, the country crooner is really a pep talk for herself. Maren told Rolling Stone she began writing “Girl” as a diss track to another artist who had disrespected her, but during the songwriting process, she realized she the person she really needed to have a chat with was herself and focused on positivity and female empowerment.
