"Rich, White, Straight Men" is a song by Kesha. She leaked the song and it was posted on June 2, 2019, on her official YouTube Channel. It is not included on High Road. The song, at first, was not an official single, rather a "buzz" single. On June 7th, 2019, it was serviced as a single and it was announced that the song would be available on streaming sites, along with official single artwork.
The song was uploaded to her YouTube channel, with a clip of her in a brown wig and flipping off the camera in a loop. She posted on her Instagram story about the song saying:
|“||I just got a mix of a song, I just don't want it to sit on my computer. So I kinda want to share it, just like upload it. I don't know where it's gonna go, what it's gonna be on.||”|
She then proceeded to play a portion of the song before the end of the clip.
