Kesha's comeback this year was perhaps the best motherf***ing story in music in 2017. Her 2nd single post-comeback - this empowerment anthem made more poignant by her motherf***ing legal troubles with Sony Music concerning the alleged sexual assault of her by Dr. Luke - is a hell of a "I'm back, you motherf***ing bitches" song. At any rate, it's clear that she's not going to be f***ing pushed down.
What is missing from this song that was present in her earlier songs is Auto-Tune. Because the woman the pipes and doesn't need motherf***ing Auto-Tune. (Which, if you read Totally Covered, you already know). Any doubt about that fact should be squashed by the fact that she's keeping up with The Motherf***ing Dap-Kings, who are better known for being the backing band for the late big-piped singers Sharon Motherf***ing Jones and Amy Motherf***ing Winehouse.
And this song has spirit. Ignoring for the motherf***ing overuse of "motherf***er" in the song. Kesha starts laughing at about 1:13 in this video. The song is free and fun, intentionally. In the artist's words:
"I wanted this song to capture that organic, raw, soulful sound and keep the imperfect moments in the recordings." (Source: Rolling Stone)I can say more about this great, fun, exciting song, but I'd rather you just listen to it yourself. Enjoy.
