Kesha Proclaims She's A Motherf*cking 'Woman' In Her Empowering New Single

Just a week after sending chills down our collective spines with the release of "Praying" Kesha has returned with a second, incredible single you will be singing along to in no time at all.

Kesha continues to hit high notes in her comeback to music.

Kesha had not released any new music for the past four years prior to the release of her single "Praying" on July 6, due to an ongoing court battle with Sony and her former producer, Dr. Luke. "Don't touch my weave, don't call me honey".

"It was such a lovely experience to write such a strong female empowerment song with two men", she told the magazine of working on "Woman" with her two male collaborators.

She's joined by the Dap-Kings for a horn section chorus, and finished recording on the song at their studio in Brooklyn. She's so excited about it that she not only released a killer video (directed by her brother, Lagan) to accompany it, but an essay that dives deep into the genesis of the track, and why this song, in particular, gets to the root of why she started writing music and performing in the first place.

More information about Dr. Luke's controlling and abusive tendencies was released when Kesha filed a lawsuit in 2014 against Dr. Luke, claiming the producer had "sexually, physically, verbally, and emotionally abused Ms. Sebert to the point where Ms. Sebert almost lost her life", in an effort to, "maintain complete control over her life and career". "That day was one of the best writing sessions of my life".

For her first album in almost five years, Kesha worked with a wide variety of collaborators, including Ben Folds, Ricky Reed (Phantogram, Meghan Trainor), Wrabel (Adam Lambert, Afrojack), the Eagles of Death Metal, Dolly Parton and her mother, Pebe Sebert.

To me, the thing I'm most proud of is that the song and video never lost the pure joy from the day it was birthed. And with plenty of signature glitter showing up in the new video, she proves she hasn't entirely abandoned her party-girl past.

It was inspired by her 2016 tour with live band, The Creepies, where she began performing straight-up rock shows with no backing tracks or dancers. I proclaimed again: "I'm a motherfucking woman"! I really hope people enjoy this song because I had the best time making it.
