Ke$ha’s Album ‘Rainbow’
Once known as the queen of partying and pop with hit songs like “Tik Tok” and “Your Love is my Drug,” Ke$ha has certainly taken an opposite turn after listening to her new album ‘Rainbow.’ Instead of on-the-surface content we typically heard of her in the past, Ke$ha expressed deep emotions and showed her best and authentic self in each song.
Ke$ha has been through hell and back after legal and public relations battles with her ex-producer, Dr. Luke, a former leader in the musical industry. Ke$ha claimed that Dr. Luke “sexually, physically, verbally and emotionally abused” her and many of her songs echo this extensive turmoil she suffered from for so long. Some songs that clearly address her situation with Dr. Luke are “Bastards,” “Let ’Em Talk” and “Learn to Let Go.”
Even though Ke$ha won most of the lawsuit, she signed with Dr. Luke and he will still be awarded with some success from the album because it was a “collaborative process” as Christine Lepera, a lawyer for the producer, said.
At one point during Ke$ha’s turmoil, fans created a hashtag #FreeKesha, and those same fans are supportive of her comeback. ‘Rainbow’ was definitely worth the long wait. Some standout songs are “Women,” a feminist ode, and “Hymn,” which demonstrates her growth ever since the beginning of the lawsuit.
For one of her songs, “Old Flames (Can’t Hold a Candle to You),” Ke$Ha even teamed with the famed Dolly Parton for an interesting take on the old song. This song was actually co-written by Ke$ha’s Mom, Pebe Sebert.
The change in Ke$ha’s overall production, from pop to natural beauty, is an exciting transformation. We are excited to see what more she is capable of after ‘Rainbow.’
We definitely recommend that you listen to ‘Rainbow,’ which will officially release tomorrow, Aug. 11. We promise that you won’t regret it.
