‘We Are the World’ of ‘Girls Like You’

People like coming together to make something happen. It’s come about time and time again, the colonists rallying together to fight for independence, the creation of the United Nations in 1920, the worldwide support of the #MeToo movement, or the Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100 to help raise money to end poverty. In January 1985, with the help of producer/composer Quincy Jones, Michael Jackson, and Lionel Richie pulled together 43 other artists to record ‘We Are the World’ in order to bring social and political awareness to the ongoing humanitarian efforts in Africa. They included different genres of musicians to exemplify the coming together of diverse people to help others. This act was repeated once again 2017 (released in 2018) with Maroon 5 featuring Cardi B.’s ‘Girls Like You’ music video, in order to bring about social and political awareness to the ongoing 21st-century feminist movement. By bringing a collective group of all different types of women from all over the world, they were able to demonstrate the individual strengths each woman and the power that all women hold.
