"U.N.I.T.Y.," Queen Latifah 

Queen Latifah set the record straight for anyone with ill intentions towards women with her hit "U.N.I.T.Y." At the time, several outlets, ironically, refused to play the song due to the reoccurring use of the words "b---h" and "h-e," but she hushed all that fuss, too, with a cleaner version. It landed the number-two spot on Billboard's Hip-Hop chart and earned the Queen a Grammy Award.
