Kesha‘s latest music video is more than just a visual component for her latest single: It’s a reimagination of a love song to make it more inclusive.
On the Universal Love Album, artists like Bob Dylan, St. Vincent, and Ben Gibbard have recorded versions of popular love songs with a nod to the LGBTQ community. Kesha tackled Janis Joplin’s “I Need a Man to Love Me”—changing the pronouns to she/her—and for the video, she married an actual couple.
The video opens with the kind of imagery you’d expect from a Kesha video. The singer shakes her blonde locks in the desert while wearing a jean jacket in a shiny, blue convertible. But it quickly tugs at your heartstrings as you realize that the reason the singer is in the desert is a personal one: She’s headed to Vegas to officiate a wedding for two of her fans.
The song gets interspersed with intimate footage from the couple’s special trip, and the resulting music video is a tearjerker, to say the least.
Queen Kesha reigns on.
