10. Missy Elliot – Ching a Ling
Look at my watch, cost a whole lot / So iced out you can’t see it tick-tock
Yeah, I’m so hot and I can’t be topped / Artists drop down like Michael Jackson socks
9. Lana Del Rey – Money, Power, Glory
I want money, power and glory
I want money and all your power, all your glory
8. Donna Summer – She Works Hard For The Money
She works hard for the money / So hard for it honey
She works hard for the money / So you better treat her right
7. Rihanna – Bitch Better Have My Money
Better have my money!
Please don’t call me on my bluff
Pay me what you owe me
Ballin’ bigger than LeBron
Give me your money
Who y’all think y’all frontin’ on?
6. Iggy Azalea – Fancy (ft. Charli XCX)
So get my money on time, if they not money, decline
I just can’t worry ’bout no haters, gotta stay on my grind
5. Flying Lizards – Money
*ok, this is a cover – but this version is iconic.
The best things in life are free
But you can give them to the birds and bees
I want money
You love gives me such a thrill
But your love won’t pay my bills
I want money
4. Britney Spears – Work B**ch
You want a hot body? You want a Bugatti?
You want a Maserati? You better work bitch
You want a Lamborghini? Sippin’ martinis?
Look hot in a bikini? You better work bitch
You wanna live fancy? Live in a big mansion?
Party in France? You better work bitch
3. Beyonce – Run the World
Boy you know you love it
How we’re smart enough
To make these millions
Strong enough to bear the children
Then get back to business
2. Lily Allen – Hard Out Here
There’s a glass ceilin’ to break, uh-huh, there’s money to make
And now it’s time to speed it up ’cause I can’t move at this pace
….1. Destiny’s Child – Independent Women Part 1
Was there any doubt?
If you’re gonna brag make sure it’s your money you flaunt
Depend on no-one else to give you what you want
