Last month, Serena Williams was mad as hell. Now she's adding a sweet lilt to The Divinyls' classic "I Touch Myself" in a video she produced to increase breast cancer awareness, the Guardian reports. "Yes, this put me out of my comfort zone, but I wanted to do it because it’s an issue that affects all women of all colours, all around the world," she captions the video on Instagram. Christina Joy Amphlett, The Divinyl's lead singer, died of breast cancer in 2013.

Oh, and Williams is topless in the video. Not the first time, either: The 23-time Grand Slam singles winner wore her birthday suit for Vanity Fair in 2017 and the Pirelli Calendar in 2016, notes E! Online. She also laid down rap tracks in 2011 and appeared in Beyonce's "Sorry" video five years later. (More Serena Williams stories.)
