Obama has released the song to promote her 'Let Girls Learn' initiative.
Michelle Obama has recruited an all-star female line up for a new single called 'The Is For My Girls'.
The First Lady Of The US unveiled the new single featuring Missy Elliott, Janelle Monaé, Kelly Clarkson, Kelly Rowland, Lea Michele, and Zendaya, in time for her key speech at SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas.
The song combines horns with a military-like drum beat, while the lyrics are mostly made up of statements of empowerment such as "Don't take nothing from nobody", "It's all about respect" and "Stand strong forever".
Listen to the track here.
The single was written by Grammy-winning songwriter Diane Warren, who has also written for the likes of Beyonce, TLC and Snoop Lion.
Bringing together an all-star collection of women, Michelle wants to shine a light on her campaign, the 'Let Girls Learn' initiative, which “helps adolescent girls around the globe attend and complete school.”
The single is now available on iTunes and all proceeds go to Peace Corps Let Girls Learn Fund.
Last year Michelle Obama famously showed off her rapping skills by dropping a freestyle to promote her 'Reach Higher' initiative.
