Watch The World Premiere Of Kazaky’s “What You Gonna Do”

KAZAKY by Kate Kondratieva - 01

We love the high-heeled boys of Kazaky, and were floored when they asked if they could debut their new music video, What You Gonna Do,” on NewNowNext.

Things are heating up for Kazaky in Russia—and not in the good way—as a campaign has begun against them: In October a show was shut down when anti-gay rioters broke into the club they were performing at in the former Soviet Republic of Kyrgyzstan. More recently, the Russian Municipal Ministries of Culture called Kazaky immoral and “contrary to the core human values.”

If pop music, dancing and sky-high heels aren’t core human values we don’t know what are! Let’s embrace this anthem as a response to the hateful forces in Kazaky’s homeland.
