Biography

If there’s one thing Ke$ha knows how to do, it’s tell stories. Here’s a pretty good one: Two years ago, the aspiring pop singer and songwriter decided she wanted Prince to produce her first album. So, she found out his address and drove to his Beverly Hills home, where she paid the gardener five dollars to let her squeeze herself under his front gate. Then she hiked up the ...

Product Description

Product Description

This is the deluxe edition of Ke$ha's second album Warrior. Executively produced by Dr. Luke and Cirkut it also features songwriting from fun. and The Flaming Lips as well as guest vocals from Iggy Pop.

BBC Review

Back in 2009, when she released her debut single TiK ToK, Ke$ha presented herself as wilfully trashy. Here was a pop singer who'd inserted a dollar sign into her stage name and sang about brushing her teeth with a bottle of whiskey.

However, her debut album Animal turned out to be against-the-odds enjoyable. It matched hooks with humour, and made the most of pop's new obsession with heavily Auto-Tuned vocals. Ke$ha may have been silly, but she wasn't stupid.

Even so, it's perhaps surprising that she's showing signs of artistic growth. Like her debut, Warrior is a collection of shamelessly commercial electro-pop, but on several songs, Ke$ha works in her love of 1970s rock. Lead single Die Young begins with the sound of an acoustic guitar, while Thinking of You mixes punky riffs with her usual synths. She even drafts in Iggy Pop for a ridiculous duet called Dirty Love.

It's one of several welcome surprises on the album. Love Into the Light is a smoky 1980s-style slowie with drum sounds perfect for the Cadbury's gorilla. Only Wanna Dance With You sounds like Ke$ha covering a Strokes single, and even features two members of the New York indie band – for a supposedly low-rent pop singer, Ke$ha has a lot of trendy mates. Meanwhile, Wonderland is a country-tinged ballad which proves she can sing without Auto-Tune.

Perhaps inevitably, several tracks feature the dreaded dubstep breakdown, surely 2012's most overused trend. And more troublingly, one or two songs sound very similar to recent hits by Katy Perry, with whom Ke$ha shares a producer (Dr Luke). But taken as a whole, this is another surprisingly enjoyable album from a pop singer who has managed to broaden her approach without losing her USP.

In fact, Ke$ha's trademark trashiness is still disturbingly infectious. It's hard not to smile when she sings about getting it on with a ghost, or rhymes "sabre-toothed tiger" with "warm Budweiser". However, even Iggy Pop has no answer to Ke$ha's strangest come-on from their flirty duet: "Champagne tastes like p*** to me."

5.0 out of 5 stars Party Queen is back! 3 Dec 2012
Format:Audio CD
The Queen of partying and Auto-tune is back! She gets rid of most of her glitter, grabs a guitar (with some glitter on it) and seduces us into her electropop/Rock 'n' Roll tornado. The album has a different vibe from her debut in the sense that it sounds a little stripped down. It doesn't make much sense but that's how it feels to my ears. It must be the less use of Auto-tune.

Without omitting her classic electropop anthems, she adds some old-school sounds and the result is utterly pure F.U.N.! I believe that the lead single "Die young" is a good example for what you should expect from this album. A few tracks you shouldn't miss are: Dirty love, Only wanna dance with you, Crazy kids and All that matters (The beautiful life).

Animal + Cannibal - Most of the glitter + Rock 'n' Roll = Warrior!

5.0 out of 5 stars My best album of the year! 6 Dec 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Ke$ha has produced another album that is terrific fun. From the bouncy style to the cheeky, and sometimes quite clever lyrics, this excels.
I agree in general terms with all the other positive reviews, even though my personal favourites may differ. The 'De-Luxe' version is a must, if only for 'Gold Trans Am'.
Buy it, enjoy it, but don't take it too seriously and you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Warrior On The Thrill Ride Of Life 6 Dec 2012
Format:Audio CD
I actually first became familiar with Kesha from the "Tik Tok" song and hearing about her duet with Flo Rida on "Right Round" (which is also featured in the "Hangover" movie). "Right Round" also received heavy radio airplay when I was living in both Norfolk, Virginia and Orlando, Florida. I have heard other songs by her but I would have to also put "Your Love Is My Drug" as one of the songs that I had heard on the radio during the summer of 2010 that grew on me. The vibe of "Warrior" reminds me of the vibe of "Your Love Is My Drug" in an exciting way. Many of the songs combine dance, electronica, and pop in a strong way that fits well with the "Warrior Theme". "Warrior", "Crazy Kids", "Wherever You Are", "Dirty Love" (featuring Iggy Pop), "Supernatural", "All That Matters" (The Beautiful Life), and "Past Lives" are only some of the catchy multiple songs on this cd. "Warrior" by Kesha is great if you enjoy musical tracks with pop and electronic elements.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ke$ha promised rock n' roll, 4 Dec 2012
By CSH
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
And she certainly kept to that!

The album begins with some simple, but effective pop songs such as Warrior. By number five, Kesha moves into rock, with the super catchy Crazy Kids. The other songs are a mixture of pop and rock - in an almost alternating fashion.

One of the album's strengths is Kesha's hilarious, cheeky and well written one-liners. She contributed to every song and so did her mother, Pebe. Another strength is the variety; this album has something for everyone. From club-bangers, to dance tracks and to rock...this has enough to entertain old fans, attract new ones and strengthen her already almighty Animals!

The deluxe edition is a MUST buy, as some of the quirkier songs are on the second disk and, they add to the variety.

Overall, my favourite songs are:

-Crazy Kids - calm, fast moving rock music with plenty of whistling in all the right places. Unforgettable from the get go!

-Wherever You Are - a fast, club anthem with shows emotion at the same time. Such a combination is usually unachieveable, but as Kesha is the writer and singer, this song is nailed to perfection.

-Dirty Love - rock with Iggy Pop! A lovely duet! Need I say more? I love his contribution to another great one: dancy rock song Only Wanna Dance With You.

-Gold Trans Am - this is pure rock with lead guitars storming through the song. Kesha's voice is powerful and suits the rock genre very well. This song also has the cheekiest lyrics..."my golden carpet" and "burning rubber on the southern highway"...genius.

-Supernatural - about sex with a ghost, apparently. This is quirky, out of this world and very difficult to describe. I guess, unique and 2012 DJ pop sums it up nicely.

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING!!! 3 Dec 2012
By Adam
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Every song is AMAZING. There are literally no fillers. It's just a shame that Last Goodbye and Gold Trans Am are on the deluxe and not the standard because they are stronger than some tracks on the standard. But overall, 5* comeback for Kesha. You will NOT be let down by buying this album. Best album of 2012 and she has also hardly used any auto tune on the songs in this album to prove to the haters that she CAN sing so I think a lot more people will get into her music better now even though I love the songs on Animal and Cannibal.

BUY IT!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this album!! 3 May 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
After listening to my Animal vs Cannibal album for ages I finally found the release date for warrior and pre-ordered it. I got it the day before the release date which I was pleased about and then popped it in to have a listen. I have hardly listened to anything else since. I loved Ke$ha's music before and I still do now. I love the way that alot of her songs are based on her experiences and are very funny.
