Having a feeling of hate for women is usually a short-term phase men go through. It could be caused by anger towards an ex, a sour mother son relationship, because of rejection from women, or other. Musicians have also felt these emotions before, and misogynistic songs are then made. Here are some of those songs about hating women.
“Loyal” by Chris Brown ft. Lil Wayne, Tyga
Song Year: 2014
“Loyal” is one of Chris Brown's signature tunes. Brown released it as the 4th single from his 6th studio album, X. It features fellow American musicians Lil Wayne and Tyga.
The song portrays misogyny in all aspects, with the artists using derogatory language and even insults in some lines. It's a dedication to unfaithful women who attach themselves to men for money and fame.
“I Don't Fuck With You” by Big Sean
Song Year: 2015
“I Don't Fuck With You” is a track by American rapper Big Sean, featuring fellow rapper E-40. Released in 2015, the song featured on Sean's 3rd studio album, Dark Sky Paradise.
Big Sean released the track shortly after his breakup with actress Naya Rivera, leading many to speculate that the song aimed primarily at throwing shade at her. The artists hurl insults toward women from the first to the last verse.
“Gold Digger” by Kanye West ft. Jamie Foxx
Song Year: 2005
“Gold Digger” is the 4th track from Kanye West's 2nd studio album, Late Registration. The song features Jamie Foxx and additional vocals from Don C and Plain Pat.
At first, listen, and thanks to its catchy, rhythmic beat, you might not think much of it. Nevertheless, considering the “Gold Digger” is a very gender-specific, one-sided term, it does cast doubt on the track's overall message. Kanye portrays women as materialistic and manipulative individuals.
“Smack That” by Akon ft. Eminem
Song Year: 2006
“Smack That” is a crunk tune by American singer cum songwriter Akon, featuring American rapper Eminem. The song featured on Akon's 2nd album, Konvicted, was acclaimed as a fantastic club song.
However, if you listen carefully to the lyrics, the song is nothing short of misogynistic. Akon portrays women as sexual and materialistic beings who are only attracted to him because of fame and wealth.
“Blurred Lines” by Robin Thicke ft. T.I., Pharrell
Song Year: 2013
“Blurred Lines” is a track by American artist Robin Thicke, featuring fellow American musicians Pharrell Williams and T.I. Thicke released the track as the lead single and title track of his 6th studio album.
Lyrically, Thicke claimed he composed the track for his then-wife Paula Patton. However, the track received overall negative reviews from critics, with some saying it glorified misogyny and rape culture.
“Hookah” by Tyga ft. Young Thug
Song Year: 2014
“Hookah” is a track by American rapper Tyga. The song was released as the 2nd announced single for his 4th studio album, The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty. Unfortunately, the track didn't end up on the album.
Tyga and Young Thug are notorious for their vulgar lyrics and objectifying language, which they also use in this song.
“Love Me” by Lil Wayne ft. Drake, Future
Song Year: 2013
“Love Me” by Lil Wayne, featuring Drake and Future, is the breakout song of the former's 10th studio album, I Am Not a Human Being II. The track became a top 10 hit, peaking at #9 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.
While the hook is an appreciation and replication of love for the girls who love the artists, the song has an overall misogynistic vibe. The artists primarily praise women who are attractive and sexually submissive, which is objectification.
“Deuces” by Chris Brown ft. Tyga, Kevin McCall
Song Year: 2011
“Deuces” is a track composed and recorded by American singer Chris Brown, featuring fellow musicians Kevin McCall and Tyga. The song was released as the lead track from Brown's inaugural collaborative effort with Tyga, Fan of a Fan.
Although the track isn't outrightly misogynistic, it portrays a disrespectful and negative attitude toward women. The artists use belittling language and express a sense of entitlement.
“Come Get Her” by Rae Sremmurd
Song Year: 2015
“Come Get Her” is a track by American hip-hop duo Rae Sremmurd. The duo released the track as the 5th single for their debut album, SremmLife.
This song primarily focuses on seduction, attraction, and sexual encounters, but you'll catch the misogynistic undertones if you pay attention to the lyrics. The artists objectify women as mere prizes or conquests and don't care about their emotions.
“Relationships” by Young Thug ft. Future
Song Year: 2017
“Relationships” is the 6th single by Young Thug from his 5th mixtape, Beautiful Thugger Girls. The song features one of the most misogynistic artists of today, Future, so it's no surprise that it makes our list.
Future is known for viewing women as objects of desire and constantly disregarding their emotional well-being. On this track, both artists boast about having many women but highlight the problems with that lifestyle.
