After last month’s horrific mass shooting claimed the lives of 49 people at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, a number of pop stars have teamed up for “Hands,” an old-school, “We Are The World”-style charity single. Interscope is teaming up with GLAAD to release “Hands,” which raises money for Equality Florida Pulse Victims Fund, the GLBT Community Center of Central Florida, and GLAAD. The song features Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez, Mary J. Blige, Gwen Stefani, Selena Gomez, Jason Derulo, Kacey Musgraves, Pink, Imagine Dragons, Juanes, Prince Royce, Adam Lambert, Halsey, Troye Sivan, Megan Trainor, Imagine Dragons, MNEK, Nate Ruess, Ty Herndon, Tyler Glenn, Alex Newell, Jussie Smollett, RuPaul, and the Trans Chorus of Los Angeles. Semi Precious Weapons frontman and pop songwriter Justin Tranter co-wrote the song with Grimes/Justin Bieber collaborator BloodPop® and pop songwriter Julia Michaels. Tranter, BloodPop®, and Mark Ronson produced it. Listen to it below.
