First Lady Michelle Obama hopped back on the mic to spread the good word about girl’s education.

Inspired by her Let Girls Learn initiative, Mrs. Obama teamed up with Missy Elliot and Zendaya to release “This Is For My Girls,” a girl-powered anthem that encourages girls to “stand up and be heard.”

The song will be available exclusively on iTunes, but here’s a look at some of the empowering lyrics:

This is for my girls
All around the world
This is for my girls

There’s beauty in your soul
That’s what makes you beautiful
Don’t let nobody ever make you doubt it
Your heart is free and strong
That’s what keeps you keepin’ on
Can’t keep you down,
There ain’t no doubt about it
Don’t forget it’s all about respect
Nothing less will do
Remember it’s your life,
Live it any way you like
Cuz you know you got the right to

This is for my girls
All around the world
Stand up, hold your head up
Don’t take no s**t from nobody

This is for my girls
Stand up and be heard
This is for my ladies, my sisters, all over
This is for my girls

You’re someone who can be
Soft as silk, but strong as steel
Don’t shy away from showing what you’re made of
This world is yours to take
You can bend, but you won’t break
You got no fear, ain’t nothin’ you’re afraid of
Don’t forget it’s all about respect
Nothing less will do
Push negativity aside
Let em see how bright you shine
Cuz you know that it’s your time to

This is for my girls
All around the world
Stand up, hold your head up
Don’t take no s**t from nobody

This is for my girls
Stand up and be heard
This is for my ladies, my sisters, all over

This is for my girls
Let life in with open arms
Let love in with an open heart
We got to remember
We’ll stand strong forever
If we stand together

This is for my girls
All around the world
Stand up, hold your head up
Don’t take no s**t from nobody

This is for my girls
Stand up and be heard
This is for my ladies, my sisters, all over
This is for my girls

Wednesday, Mrs. Obama welcome Missy Elliot, Queen Latifah, and others to discuss girls’ education around the globe.

This isn’t the first time Mrs. Obama grabbed the microphone. Last December she teamed up with SNL’s Jay Pharaoh to encourage people to go to college, sparking the hilarious reverent hashtag #FLOTUSbars.
