If you were still on the fence about the return of Kesha, it’s time to shut up and fall in line because the dirty pop queen is here to stay. 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.
Released early Thursday morning, “Woman” finds Kesha partnering with the The Dap-Kings Horns for a track that blurs the line between her traditional sound and the big band aesthetic that makes soul music sound so damn good. The entire song serves as an anthem for female empowerment, much like “Praying,” only this time with an inherent sense of fun that demands women everywhere celebrate themselves. As she sings on the hook, “I’m a motherfucking woman / baby, alright / I don’t need a man to be holding me too tight.” You can experience the song for yourself above.
“Woman” is the second song to surface from Kesha’s upcoming studio album, Rainbow, which is due in stores next month. We expect more songs and possibly even tour dates to surface in the weeks ahead, so make sure you follow Substream on Twitter to ensure you never miss another headline.
