Kesha - Backstabber  

Kesha is the singer featured on Flo Rida's surprisingly brilliant new single, Right Round. She seems quite feisty from her MySpace and her song lyrics, but I think it's great to have an artist with attitude, as it really adds character to the music. I probably wouldn't want to hang out with her, though. She's working with a lot of big names (Gad, Garibay, Bogart etc.) so the record company obviously have high hopes for her. She's kind of like Fergie but with good songs, meets a version of Gene Serene with the right connections to win the fanbase that Gene has always deserved. I'm not sure if there's a really strong single in any of her MySpace tracks, although Backstabber is a real grower, but if the Flo Rida track does as well as I think it will (i.e. VERY well), then she will probably be offered some better songs from songwriters who may not have given them to her otherwise. It'll be interesting to see how her career progresses, especially as her list of influences include such pop maestros as Richard X, MIA and... erm... The Cardigans?! Anyway, get to know Kesha now cos you might well be obsessed with her by this time next year.
