Welcome back to Takeover Tuesday, where each week, Billboard taps chart-topping artists and tastemakers to compile their very own playlist exclusive to Billboard's Spotify account. We give the artists free rein to base the list on whatever subject they choose. The only rule? Make it as creative and unique to them as possible.
Whether she's fighting for her fans or standing up for herself, Kesha has never shied away from defending what she believes. Amid her personal but very public battle with Dr. Luke, the "Praying" singer served as a pillar of hope for those who have experienced similar troubles by releasing her emotionally raw third album, Rainbow, last year. And now, she's empowering more listeners with her latest anthem, "Here Comes the Change," part of the inspiring Ruth Bader Ginsberg biopic, On The Basis of Sex (due in theaters Dec. 25).
The impassioned track puts Kesha's powerful vocals at the forefront, with an acoustic guitar building into soulful harmonica and booming drums as the singer belts out "Here comes the change/ We're comin' of age/ This is not a phase/ Here comes, here comes, the change." Kesha was moved to write the song after watching On The Basis of Sex, particularly because of the impact Ginsberg has made.
