Becky G’s new song and video for “Todo Cambió”
This Madrid-filmed video by the Power Rangers actress follows a young woman who, as Becky G says, "quickly learns that her parents' concept of 'perfect' isn't what she had in mind, and she looks for something that's missing...true love." Love that girl empowerment—and the fact that the song is completely in Spanish!

Meghan Trainor's "I'm A Lady"
Meghan Trainor sure knows how to make a song that makes us want to dance. This catchy song from the movie Smurfs: The Lost Village shows that there are a multitude of ways to "be a lady"—and that's what International Women's Day is all about.
