Kesha, free at last, shines brighter than ever on 'Rainbow'

Kesha's new album, Rainbow, was released on 11 August.

It's not technically ideal, but musically, it's flawless.

"I had so many emotions, and I didn't know how else to deal with them". For years starting in 2014, the singer was embroiled in a legal battle with Dr. Luke, who used his power as a tool of manipulation over the young artist and stopped her from sharing music for years. That song and the lyrics were a letter to myself promising that I was going to take care of myself going forward and that I was going to be okay, ' Kesha wrote on Instagram.

Bursting onto the pop scene in a haze of glitter in 2009, Kesha (then styled as Ke$ha) stood out as a bold and dynamic newcomer, a high school dropout in successful pursuit of achieving her dreams as a singer and songwriter.

The two have been at war, though, since Kesha claimed the producer drugged, sexually abused and psychologically tormented her. Dr. Luke is denying the allegations.

"Hymn", co-written with her mother Pebe Sebert, is irresistible and anthemic; "Learn to Let Go" is upbeat and punchy; and "Woman", featuring The Dap-Kings Horns, is empowering and bouncy. On Rainbow, Kesha wastes no time addressing those who attempted to stifle her growth.
