Kesha’s on the run.

#Kesha released a new song and video for “Raising Hell,” featuring Big Freedia, the first single off her forthcoming album, High Road.

The song is upbeat and vibrant, a welcome contrast to her previous lead single, “Praying,” off Rainbow, which found the singer caught in a self-reflective dilemma in the midst of a nasty sexual assault lawsuit with producer Dr. Luke. “Raising Hell” is a needed change of pace for both Animals and Kesha.

On it, Kesha sings about causing trouble, but laces the lyrics with religious symbolism. The video finds her preaching a sermon to blind supporters who take her word as gospel. Meanwhile, a blonde Kesha finds herself trapped in a loveless marriage to an abusive husband whom she accidentally kills defending herself from during domestic dispute. That leads to a resurgence (a brunette Kesha) and a life on the run. But, that can only last for so long…

  1. 2020 is going to be a little like 2011…kesha, adele, rihanna, gaga…possibly katy πŸ˜†. I wish I could say Brit will be in the mix. I need new work out bangerz from Kesha.

  2. Yes! Finally! Is there anyway Kesha can pull a Gaga and rerelease an album without original tracks? If so let’s rerelease rainbow and delete all songs from the original, I had to delete that album from my music too depressing. I want old Ke$ha back upgraded!

      1. Too depressing for Kesha. Kesha is not versatile like Gaga/ Rihanna able to fill upbeat and mellow music. Kesha is uplifting and best when she does pop music. It was a decent album good try but I want my upbeat Kesha to lift me up 🀩!

  3. I feel like I’m being so negative about all the releases this week but I don’t want to fool myself. This is NOT the sound that I was expecting when she said she’s going back to her roots. I mean, the song’s not bad but hello people… this is RAINBOW 2.0. The sound, the horns, the live band instrumentation is basically Rainbow. I thought she’s gonna give us the Tik Toks and the Die Youngs and the Timbers. πŸ˜ͺ I’m sooo tired.

    1. That **** didn’t age well and I am glad she is mixing both – her attitude and don’t give a **** attitude is there so we should appreciate that. Also, timber was trash in a bad way and a low in her career.
