Missy Elliott, Kelly Clarkson, Janelle Monae, Zendaya, Kelly Rowland, Lea Michele, Chloe & Halle and Jadagrace all lend their talents to the track, which has an old school Christina Aguilera feel to it. Co-written by Diane Warren the track features horns, big drums and a load of vocal prowess. “This is for my ladies, like soldiers we stand up/ Remember when Tupac told us ‘Keep our head up’?,” Elliot spits in the clip.

The single is available for purchase on iTunes with proceeds going to benefit Peace Corps Let Girls Learn Fund, which aims to guarantee girls a secondary education.
