DAMN! That's a lot of lovely ladies!

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.

The song hit airwaves just hours before Miz Obama's SXSW panel alongside Diane, Missy, Sophia Bush, and moderator Queen Latifah.

Chloe x Halle will also be performing the song at the event!

The track will be available on iTunes at midnight, and all proceeds will go towards the Peace Corps' Let Girls Learn Fund.

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.
