The Lesley Gore song has been recorded by many other artists over the years, like Joan Jett and Grace, but one of its biggest resurgences was due to the movie The First Wives Club. As fans will remember, the first time Grande performed "Thank U, Next," she recreated the iconic "You Don't Own Me" scene from the film — making her duet with Chenoweth delightfully full circle. Not only is Grande a huge First Wives Club fan, she's also a huge fan of the song itself. But of course, her love of the original track isn't the only thing that makes this collab extra special for Grande. Her longtime admiration and personal connection to Chenoweth is what made this a surreal experience. They both appeared in Hairspray Live!
The song was Gore's second most successful recording and her last top-ten single. On November 27, , along with 24 other songs, the Grammy Hall of Fame announced its induction. The song expresses emancipation, as the singer tells a lover that he does not own her, that he isn't to tell her what to do or what to say, and that he is not to put her on display. The song's lyrics became an inspiration for younger women and are sometimes cited as a factor in the second wave feminist movement. Gore said, "My take on the song was: I'm 17, what a wonderful thing, to stand up on a stage and shake your finger at people and sing you don't own me. The song reached number two on the Billboard Hot in the United States. The song remained at number two for three consecutive weeks on February 1, , unable to overcome the Beatles ' hit, " I Want to Hold Your Hand ". It became Gore's second most successful hit after to " It's My Party ". The song was Gore's last top-ten single. After the success of "You Don't Own Me", many of Lesley Gore 's other songs, including " That's the Way Boys Are " , were eventually compared to it and criticized for not coming up to feminist expectations.
