Kesha Leaks ‘C’mon’ for Her Animals
In her behind-the-scenes look at ‘Die Young,’ Kesha described her relationship with her fans as being a cult. But unlike Heaven’s Gate or anything led by a Manson or Koresh, Kesha gives back to her followers — though she does sometimes make them work for it. When one Animal sleuth solved a clue in an online scavenger hunt on her website, the ‘Warrior’ singer unlocked her track ‘C’mon’ as a reward.
‘C’mon’ is a return to the Kesha everyone first fell in love with, reminiscent of ‘Tik Tok,’ ‘Your Love Is My Drug,’ ‘My Crazy Beautiful Life’ and ‘Grow a Pear’ in terms of sound and theme. The song is a synth heavy dance romp dedicated to meeting a cute band guy in a bar, getting tipsy and hooking up.
As usual, there are bits of K-Dollar Sign’s usual cheeky, goofy, self-aware humor as well. “Feelin’ like a saber-toothed ti-grrrrr / Sippin’ on a warm Budweiser / Touch me and give me that rush / Better bring a toothbrush / Gonna pull an all-nighter / We been keepin’ it Kosher / But I want to get it on fo’ sho’.” Seriously, who other than Kesha can pull this off?
It’s a return to the glitter goddess in terms of her rapping — the verses are rapidfire spits of silliness. However, she croons on the choruses and bridge without much of the Auto-Tune she’s been criticized for in the past (though there is a hint of a Vocoder for effect in the bridge). If listeners were jarred by the rawness of ‘Die Young’ and missed the old cannibal queen, they’ll find her here.
