5.14.12 - New Music - Ke$ha
If this is a sample of what is to come from Ke$ha’s new album, I’m in.
While this may not be a single off of her upcoming album, I sincerely hope it’s on there. K$ has been saying for months that her new album will be a lot more rock inspired, and will reinvent pop music. I can’t say that I am actually sitting here waiting for her to reinvent it, but I can realistically expect some rock elements in there. Listen to the way she screams “pretty ladayyy!” at the end of the first chorus. Pretty punk rock for her. She’s channeling her inner Joan Jett.
Also, the fact that she is singing a song about drag queens? I think some aren’t giving her enough credit for how out there and how kind of rock and roll this song is. Think about someone like Queen doing something like this (“Fat Bottomed Girls” anyone?). I’m not comparing her to Queen of course, but I’m saying the topic and the way it’s done really could fit with some of those queer pinoeers.
I bet the approve (if they heard it).
Anyways, no word yet on a single or anything, but we haven’t really heard too much from Ke$ha recently, so I thought I’d post this. And cuz it’s pretty awesomeee.
