Zendaya may have teamed up on an empowerment anthem with Michelle Obama, Kelly Clarkson, Missy Elliott, and more female stars, but just singing on This Is For My Girls wasn't enough for the performer — because now she's taking the next step!

The jam was created to raise awareness for the 52-year-old's Let Girls Learn initiative, which aims to help young women across the globe receive an education.

Wait, one more thing…
On Monday, Kelly Clarkson said Dr. Luke was "not a good person" in a radio interview, revealing she was "blackmailed" by her label to work with him! Later, a spokesman for the Kemosabe Records founder hit back at the Piece By Piece songstress saying she just "didn't like" to take direction in the studio.
This is all happening amid Kesha's allegations that the record producer sexually assaulted and held her music hostage throughout their working relationship together.

Of course, this blow comes shortly after A-listers like Adele, Taylor Swift, and Ariana Grande all vocalized their support for the blonde beauty — who accused Dr. Luke of verbal and sexual abuse. Not to mention, Kelly Clarkson also called out the controversial executive by saying she was "blackmailed" into working with him by SM.

According to Digital Spy, the mega-producer's spokesperson responded with an excerpt from Sony Music chief Clive Davis' 2013 memoir The Soundtrack to My Life — which notes that Clarkson "didn't like" taking direction in the recording studio.
The excerpt explains that Luke and his songwriting partner Max Martin were "very strong, hands-on producers in the studio," and butted heads with the American Idol winner:
