Kesha is back! On this week’s Must-Hear Music Podcast, we’re bowing our heads to Kesha’s new song “Praying,” a meticulously constructed, slow-building ballad that tears at your soul — and has us very intrigued to hear what’s in store for her upcoming album Rainbow.
Also in the world of no-B.S. pop stars, we listen to Demi Lovato‘s “Sorry Not Sorry,” which the three of us have mixed responses to. We’re also torn on Liam Payne and Zedd‘s “Get Low,” although I think it showcases a brighter future for the 1D singer than “Strip That Down.”
In the indie realm, Jason Lipshutz points us to Broken Social Scene‘s “Stay Happy,” in addition to DeJ Loaf‘s stunner of a jam “No Fear,” which we think/hope could finally break her. Plus: Lyndsey Havens is repping her hometown of Chicago with Kweku Collins’ “Aya.”
