Kesha’s New Song ‘Woo Hoo’ Samples Blur
Kesha is embracing a rock sound on her upcoming, as-yet-untitled new album. You can get a first taste of her new garage-tinged flavor with 'Woo Hoo,' in which Kesha samples Blur's 'Song 2' to create her own party anthem.
"I'm gonna live my life / Like I was raised by wolves / Y'all already know / I'm a f---ing animal," K-Dollar-Sign sings. Kesha blends her trademark "sing-talking" with actual singing, as well as some raucous yelling, "If you just don't give a f--- / Then everybody throw 'em up!" She's not breaking any new philosophical ground, but she is getting the party started. The song also appears to have a cameo from a rapper, but it's so short that it's almost impossible to tell who the lucky guy was.
It's also unclear whether 'Woo Hoo' is an older track that only just leaked or if it's from her upcoming, as-yet-untitled second record. We're betting it's the latter.
Two weeks ago, a new song called ‘Pretty Lady‘ leaked, Kesha's ode to dudes who look (and dress) like ladies. The 'Sleazy' songstress confirmed the same day that Iggy Pop would appear on her new record, in addition to guests like the Flaming Lips' Wayne Coyne. “I’ve been pretty much in this ’70s rock and roll kick and I just want to capture some of the true essence of what rock and roll is,” Kesha said of her new album. “And that’s just irreverence and sexiness and fun and not giving a f—, so we’ll definitely put a bit of rock and roll in it.”
