Kesha performs onstage during MusiCares® Concert For Recovery Presented by Amazon Music, Honoring Macklemore at The Novo at L.A. Live on May 16, 2019 in Los Angeles.

Kesha is gearing up for the 2020 presidential elections with one question in mind: "What if rich, white, straight men didn't rule the world anymore?"

Her new song, "Rich, White, Straight Men," unveiled on Monday (June 3) envisions a world without our current political leaders. "And if you are a boy who loves a boy/You'll get a wedding cake and all/And if you are a lady and you do your lady work/Then you will make as many dollars as the boys/Not just two thirds," she chants over sounds of coins hitting the ground and cashiers opening, a reference to the money-driven political climate.

The bridge takes melody from the childhood favorite, "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star," as she muses "Twinkle, twinkle little star/How I wish the world was different/Where who you love and who you are/Was nobody’s f---ing business."   

Listen to the whole tune below.
