If you’re just like us, here at The Honey POP, there’s nothing we love more than a powerful Kesha moment. Seriously, she has perfected the inspirational-anthem genre, and we are weak for more! Kesha’s latest collaboration, with award-winning Dutch producer and DJ Sam Feldt, comes in the form of an upbeat dance number titled ‘Stronger.’ Not only did this powerful duo bless us with this feel-good song, but they dropped the music video as well!
As the title states, the song is all about overcoming adversity, never giving up, and becoming “stronger” in the process. In perfect unison, the song begins slow, with Kesha’s calm vocals inviting us to join her. As the song progresses, the beat continues to build, following the lyrics’ emotion and Kesha’s statements of staying strong. Along with the beautiful message of the track, the music video gives us stunning visuals into her internal struggle. Channeling Mortal Kombat vibes, Kesha is seen dueling herself in the video, as Sam Feldt MCs the fight. As the competition escalates, viewers can’t escape the themes of duality permeating the video. One Kesha dresses in white and silver while the other Kesha dresses in dark, black vibes, potentially representing each of us’s struggle. So who wins the fight?

The end of the music video gives us much to think about, keeping it open to interpretation. While both fighters launch one more attack, they each fall to the floor, unharmed. After a quick embrace, the video concludes without naming a winner. A powerful quote appears on the screen emphasizing the importance of finding “peace” within. So what does it all mean? Sam Feldt goes on to explain the message behind the song in the caption of the music video. He said, “For me, ‘Stronger’ is all about new beginnings – about becoming a stronger person through challenging times.”
The sentimentality of the song, along with the execution of the music video, truly makes this song one of a kind. Not only is it uplifting, but it leaves viewers hopeful that they can win their battles. This song is perfect for listening to any time of day, whether you’re getting ready in the morning, busting through a workout, or driving around town. It’s guaranteed to lift your mood! We can’t wait to see more collaborations between these two!
