Kesha: The Comeback Queen
Everyone, wake up, because the queen of techno auto-tuned pop is back… but this time she surely isn’t techno auto-tuned pop at all. The pop singer has returned, changed her stage name to Kesha (without the $), and her new hit single Praying reigns in the top 3 on the iTunes Charts for ‘Hot Tracks’.
The reason Kesha had disappeared so suddenly from the music industry was because of her recent lawsuit against her previous producer, Dr. Luke, for drugging her and sexual assault. During the process of the legal battle, Kesha was denied multiple times by judges in the court not allowing her to break contract with her producer. Today, the judges are still rejecting any of the claims made against Dr. Luke by the pop singer, but she has since then been able to break away from her old producer and signed with a brand new label, SESAC Inc. Not only was her life corrupted by this horrible situation, but she also checked into rehab in early 2014. Kesha allegedly wrote 14 new songs while in rehab.
Kesha’s new single Praying is truly a power ballad unlike any other. It is extremely raw, real, full of emotion, and unlike any side of Kesha you’ve ever heard. It is evident by the lyrics of the song that Kesha is finally happy, free, and able to express her previously suppressed emotions through what she does best- singing.
According to Business Insider, Kesha revealed to them that Praying is all about, “triumphing through adversity, and finding peace in forgiving those who have hurt you.”
