For Kesha, the past year has been jam-packed with heavy stuff. Back in January 2014, she admitted herself to rehab for eating disorder treatment, and emerged looking great, feeling healthy, and having shed her dollar sign. Later on that year, she spoke out about the years of sexual and emotional abuse she allegedly endured at the hands of her producer Dr. Luke, and remains in an ongoing legal battle with him to this day. Suffice it to say, baby girl understandably hasn't had much time to make new music. However, it looks like she's gonna get back to it soon. Kesha promised to release new music this weekend, proving once and for all that you can't keep a good girl down.
On Saturday, the "We R Who We R" singer posted a video to her Instagram with the caption: "I will release new music as soon as I can animals. as soon as I f--king can." Kesha sings the lyrics to what we can guess is a song she's working on: "Stay young/ Wild one/ I know your heart has been through it all." In the a cappella clip, her voice sounds soulful and lovely. If this little snippet is any indicator, I'm guessing that Kesha's new music will signify her coming into her own in a new way. Give 'er a listen:
After all, if there's one thing that Kesha is, it's courageous. Undergoing treatment for an eating disorder (especially in such a public way) takes serious psychological strength and conviction. Furthermore, she had the supreme courage to call out her alleged rapist, and deal with the subsequent re-living of each event by taking him to court. But if/when she gets out of her contract with Dr. Luke, as she's been reportedly trying to, she can regain creative control in a way that she's been striving for. I'm guessing this newfound agency will translate to some awesome new art. Who knows? Maybe Kesha's next album will be her Pinkprint.
