Hustle To These: 8 Songs to Inspire You to Get That Money

Waking up for work can be very hard to do. Sometimes even the pull of coffee and doughnuts isn’t enough to kickstart your day. During these darker, more difficult times, I turn to a constantly rotating playlist of songs all about working hard and getting that money.

“9 to 5” – Dolly Parton

“They let you dream just to watch ’em shatter/ You’re just a step on the boss-man’s ladder/ But you got dreams he’ll never take away.”

“Independent Women Pt. I” – Destiny’s Child

“If you’re gonna brag make sure it’s your money you flaunt/ Depend on no one else to give you what you want.”

“You Don’t Own Me” – Lesley Gore

“Oh, I don’t tell you what to say/ I don’t tell you what to do/ So just let me be myself/ That’s all I ask of you.”

“Piece of Me” – Britney Spears

“Guess I can’t see the harm in workin’ and being a mama/ And with a kid on my arm, I’m still an exceptional earner.”

“Started from the Bottom” – Drake

“I wear every single chain/ Even when I’m in the house.”

“She Works Hard for the Money” – Donna Summer

“So you better treat her right.”

“Stronger” – Kanye West

“There’s a thousand yous/ There’s only one of me.”

“Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now” – Starship

“And we can build this dream together/ Standing strong forever/ Nothing’s gonna stop us now.”

“Million Dollar Bills” – Lorde

“There’s nothing I want but money and time.”

“Let Me Blow Ya Mind” – Eve ft. Gwen Stefani

“Sophomore, I ain’t scared, one of a kind/ All I do is contemplate ways to make your fans mine.”

And finally…..

“Like a boss.”
