Kesha is a proud woman, and she’s not afraid to show it. 

The singer just released her latest track and music video Woman, and it’s a fierce feminist anthem. With lyrics like, “Don’t buy me a drink, I make my money / Don’t touch my weave, don’t call my ‘honey,’” Kesha powerfully cements her return to music.

The track is the second release from her upcoming album Rainbow, following last week’s emotional Praying. That song – her first release since 2013 – was met with positive responses and massive praise from many of the singer’s peers, including Iggy Azalea and Zedd. But while Praying is a vulnerable look into the star’s struggles in the past – including her legal battle with former producer Dr. Luke – Woman is Kesha’s way of empowering other women.

“I have always been a feminist, but for much of my life I felt like a little girl trying to figure things out,” she writes in an essay for Rolling Stone. “In the past few years, I have felt like a woman more than ever.” 

The singer hopes that Woman can be “an anthem for anyone else who wants to yell about being self-sufficient and strong,” and the video certainly showcases that; an awesome gold outfit, plenty of confident women and Kesha’s fiery performance are all on display. 

As for the singer’s album Rainbow, which releases on August 11, Kesha promises a balance between the emotional tone of Praying and the wild side in Woman

“It’s important for me that people know that there are a lot of emotions on my new album Rainbow – but the wild fun energy that first inspired me to perform has not, and will never, go away.” 

Never change, Kesha!
