Favorite girl power anthem from the aughts: 'Can't Hold Us Down' or 'Superwoman'?

Christina Aguilera's "Can't Hold Us Down" and Alicia Keys' "Superwoman" are easily the realest girl power anthems of the aughts. Xtina's smash hit gives a very bold (and necessary) message about the many double standards women face in society, and how these struggles hold them down. Alicia's single expresses the litany of challenges women face every day, but how women are strong, powerful and triumphant in the face of it all. Which song was the realest girl power anthem of the '10s? 🎤💁🏽💁🏼

Below are some significant lyrics, per Genius

🎶So what am I not supposed to have an opinion. Should I be quiet just because I'm a woman. Call me a bitch cos I speak what's on my mind. Guess it's easier for you to swallow if I sat and smiled.🎶

🎶Cause I am a Superwoman. Yes I am. Yes she is. Even when I'm a mess. I still put on a vest. With an S on my chest. Oh yes. I'm a Superwoman.🎶
