Demi Lovato and Q-Tip have released a queer-themed music video for their cover of Elton John’s classic song “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart.”

The video, which doesn’t include Lovato or Q-Tip, is set at a gay bar where the patrons break out into a voguing party.

The cover is part of the upcoming double album “Revamp” and “Restoration,” which features artists such as Mary J. Blige, Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus and more, covering John’s hits. The albums are set for release on April 6.

Lovato, who revealed she is attracted to both men and women in her documentary last year, tweeted the news about the collaboration.

“It’s such an honor to be a part of Revamp,” Lovato writes. “Thank you, Elton, for letting Q-Tip and I put a little twist on ’Don’t Go Breaking My Heart.’

Q-Tip explained in a recent interview that John invited him on the album after the two collaborated on an album for A Tribe Called Quest.

“Elton was gracious enough to be a part of the last Tribe album we did,” Q-Tip says. “When it came around to this, it was just serendipitous and logical of us to return the favor.”
