Kesha just released a new music video for “Here Comes the Change,” her latest single written for the upcoming Ruth Bader Ginsburg biopic On the Basis of Sex. In the black-and-white video, the “Praying” singer strums her guitar and plays a harmonica as scenes from the film, out in theaters on December 25th, feature behind her. Dubbed a “rallying cry for social justice,” the video was directed by Jonas Akerland, who worked with Kesha on her video for her Grammy-nominated ballad “Praying.”
Watch the music video for “Here Comes the Change” below.
On the Basis of Sex chronicles the true story of lawyer Ruth Bader Ginsburg (Felicity Jones) and the obstacles she had to overcome to become a U.S. Supreme Court Justice. In the film, Ginsburg works alongside her husband (Call Me By Your Name star Armie Hammer) on a groundbreaking case of gender discrimination.
In September, Kesha wrote about the overall message behind “Here Comes the Change” for Refinery29:
“Here Comes the Change” isn’t Kesha’s first foray into social and political activism. Earlier this month, the singer released an anti-gun violence song called “Safe” following the mass shooting in Parkland, Florida in February 2018. The “Your Love is My Drug” singer took to Twitter on October 11th and wrote: “This song is coming tomorrow in partnership with @AMarch4OurLives. Let’s end senseless gun violence.”
We stan a politically engaged pop queen.
