It was just six years ago when the world was introduced to a quirky 20-something year old who woke up “feeling like P. Diddy” and brushed her teeth with Jack Daniels. With a catalog of hits fitting to bounce off the speakers at college house parties, Kesha has since moved on from her wild “Tik Tok” pop days and is looking to get her groove back.
As she regains focus on music following a lengthy legal dispute with her former label, here’s a list of the best Kesha songs remixed to help you push through the rest of the week.
“Die Young” (We Are Temporary Remix)
The Dr. Luke-produced track gets completely stripped of its former embellishments and morphed into an eerie number that distorts Kesha’s vocals ahead of its drum-laden breakdowns.
“Animal” (Switch Remix)
High frequencies buzz throughout this synthpop take on the original Kesha song.
“Your Love Is My Drug” (Dave Aude Remix)
The singer’s infectious 2010 hit gets a driving back beat and takes listeners back to the breezy summer days where Kesha’s pop hooks ruled the radio.
“True Colors” (Nolan van Lilth Remix)
Zedd offered to help Kesha amid her legal troubles with Dr. Luke and together they created the anthemic ballad “True Colors”. This remix lays down a soothing piano arrangement juxtaposed against an aggressive drop.
“Sleazy” (Dr. Ozi Remix)
Kesha ripped through the pop scene with her unapologetic debut EP Cannibal back in 2010 as “Sleazy” revealed the singer’s raunchy side. This remix somehow manages to be even sleazier than the original Kesha song.
“Blow” (Cirkut Remix)
Kill the lights and bask in this sweeping sounds of this remix as it slaps down a boosted bass with Kesha’s vocals peppered throughout.
