Unpretty – TLC
TLC songstress, Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and producer, Dallas Austin wrote the song for their 1999 album, Fanmail. The song started off as a poem from T-Boz’s poetry book, which turned out to be a top-selling hit. The single addresses the struggle with self-image and unrealistic concepts with beauty in the media. This empowering song encourages women to overcome physical inadequacies that do not blend with society’s expectations for women. This is truly an anthem for self-worth!
