Kesha Makes A Triumphant Return With "Praying"

Kesha is finally reborn on her new single

Kesha Makes A Triumphant Return With "Praying"

It's been a long time coming but recently we 've heard a brand new single from Kesha.

Though the legal battle that surrounds the singer and her label Sony still continues, there's finally a glimpse of light at the end of the tunnel, in the form of "Praying".

"Praying" is a far cry from the brand of party ragers that made Kesha famous.

It is a raw, cathartic piano ballad that showcases her vocals in a way that has rarely been heard so far by listeners.

The music video sees an embattled Kesha rising up from an almost comatose state, matching the song's lyrics about survival.

Presumably, in reference to the very public and still-unresolved legal situation between her and her abuser, the producer Dr.Luke.

In 2014, she sued Luke, alleging he drugged, raped, and verbally, physically, and emotionally abused her for years.

Luke has denied the allegations and countersued for breach of contract and defamation.

Last year, a New York City judge denied Kesha's request for an injunction, which if granted, would have permitted her to work on fresh music outside the Kemosabe banner.

Luke's contract with Sony Music expired in March though he "still has a relationship" with the company.

"Praying" was released on Kemosabe with RCA though Luke isn't credited as produce.

With that being said, it sets out a fascinating manifesto for her forthcoming album, "Rainbow", which will be released on August 11.

All which is excellent news for pop to have Kesha and her unapologetic determination to be herself back on screen and in our ears.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.
