Kesha was born in Nashville on 1st March 1987.
Her breakthrough came by featuring on the Flo Rida single Right Round which topped the UK chart. The reason why her name is stylised as Ke$ha was because she did not get as much money as people would of thought when she appeared on that chart topping single.
Soon after that saw her signed to RCA records. The lead single was Tik Tok is still lingering in the top 10 after initially charting there 10 weeks prior. Now Tik Tok is a nice up tempo song with a highly infectious chorus. Now after hearing this song live it is really energetic:
Don’t stop, make it pop
DJ, blow my speakers up
Tonight, I’mma fight
‘Til we see the sunlight
Tick tock, on the clock
But the party don’t stop no
The debut album Animal has been unleashed with it being available in some countries already. The second unknown single will be released late February. Animal also features Blah Blah Blah which 3OH!3 feature on.
Ke$ha also made her London debut at Centro nightclub on 27th October and she also supported Calvin Harris.
How you pronounce Kesha’s name is K-esha. Well other than being a fantastic recording artist she is a talented song writer. Other than having a hand in writing all the tracks on Animal she also wrote This Love which appeared on Hook Me Up by The Veronicas and Time Of Our Lives which was the title track of the current Miley Cyrus EP.
Now Ke$ha will be someone to keep an eye on because I predict big things for her this year.
