Kesha is here with a new song titled Rich, White, Straight, Men. Kesha’s latest record is a sonically upbeat and cartoonish song, released on June 2, 2019.
The song features a different production style that departures from everything Kesha has released before. Lyrically, Kesha uses satire and sarcasm throughout the song as a way to criticize and to mock the current political situation in the United States.
In the verses, she criticizes things such as inadequate healthcare system present in the United States, the remarkably high college tuition costs, homophobia and the never-ending sexism and wage discrimination against woman, targeting the blame to the “rich, white, straight, men” who rule the world. She then asks the question of how different could things be if these individuals weren’t in control of everything.
Throughout time, Kesha has made herself known for being someone who openly fights for people’s rights, especially women’s and the LGBTQ+. In her past albums, Sebert has always revealed her feminist ways with songs such as Woman and created some gay pride anthems like We R Who We.
If you’re from another land then come here
You won’t have to climb a wall
(Yes you will!)
And if you are a boy who loves a boy
You’ll get a wedding cake and all
(Not in Colorado!)
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
