Keke Palmer is encouraging millennials to vote through a new song and video.
Taking to Twitter Thursday to share “a word from some dope millennials and the millennial diva herself,” Palmer released a video for her new song”Actually Vote,” in which she sings about why it’s important for young voters to take to the polls.
“Young people like to talk that big talk, young people are the biggest voting block,” she sings. “You can only make a change if you check that damn box.”
She also sings “no more with that clown politician running his mouth” and “we need Florida, Ohio and all of Arizona” and more states or else “we’re stuck with the guy who says bleach cures corona.”
In the music video, Palmer enlists some Hollywood stars to also sing along to the lyrics such as Ilana Glazer, Bella Throne, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Julianne Moore.
At the end of the video, Palmer can be seen placing a voting ballot in the mailbox.
The song, from Generator Collective and Starrpix, was written by Finneas, Benj Pasek, Justin Paul and Kaleena Zanders.
Earlier this year, Palmer garnered attention for her activism and for leading a passionate exchange between protesters and National Guard soldiers during a Los Angeles protest on June 2. During the exchange, the actress and activist criticized President Donald Trump and asked the armed officers to march with the protesters. During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Palmer shared that she received a phone call from Joe Biden after the video went viral.
