We can finally breathe again — Adele officially announced that her new album, 25, will be coming soon. While there's not an official release date, what she has to say about the album is touching,

"My last record was a break-up record and if I had to label this one I would call it a make-up record. I'm making up with myself. Making up for lost time. Making up for everything I ever did and never did." 

Adele's last album was everyone's heartbreak anthem because her real and raw songs were far too relatable — yes, we definitely ugly cried to it. However, for her new release it's refreshing to see that she's truly focusing on herself and nothing else. We're sure that her power ballads will leave us feeling inspired because she's got that magic touch. In the wake of such glorious news, we decided to round up some of our favorite female songs that focus on the one person that matters: you.
