Ke$ha – “Animal”
With her upbeat pop sound, Ke$ha was bound to be a hit. Her single “TiK ToK” was released last summer and instantly became number one. The song broke records all over the world, so the standards for her new album “Animal” were very high. The 22-year-old got her start working with well-known rapper Flo Rida on the popular “Right Round.” Flo Rida now has a song on “Animal,” backed by Colorado natives Nat and Sean of the electric rap group 3OH!3.
This CD appeals mostly to young listeners with its electronic beat and raucously inappropriate lyrics. The intoxicating sound of “Take It Off” is mesmerizing with its techno background, much like the flirty track “Your Love Is My Drug.” Ke$ha shows her girly side with “Kiss ‘n Tell,” a boisterous song poking fun at an unfaithful boyfriend.
The most intriguing tune, “Blah Blah Blah,” featuring 3OH!3, is a humorous look into the methods of male attraction.

Slower tracks make their appearance toward the end of the album. “Blind” is a song you could sulk to after a break-up, saying, “You’ll miss me ’til the day you die,” and the revenge-seeking singer name-drops shamelessly in “Backstabber.”
Ending with the title track, “Animal,” the album goes out with a bang. The CD will keep you dancing. I highly recommend you take a walk on the wild side with “Animal.”
