Kesha burst onto the scene at the beginning of the new decade with a record so sticky and sparkly, it was impossible to look away not matter how hard you tried. Supported by the success of the mega hit that was “Tik Tok”, Animal embraced electronic music like no other. During this time, we were just transitioning out of the 2000s pop rock sound and while other artists were simply dabbling with the idea of electronic production, Kesha went in full force without hesitation. Besides the production, however, the album gets even more interesting. With each track with Kesha as the main songwriter, the project serves as a diary of some sorts, where she discusses cheating boyfriends, backstabbing girlfriends, finding love, losing love, and most importantly, just having a good time. Kesha felt like the girl next door, only covered in glitter and with messy hair, which was a much different way of seeing a singer-songwriter at the time. It’s been over a decade since it’s been out in the world and it’s safe to say that not only did Kesha shake up what was normal for music, but she helped set up what was to come for the genre. Without Kesha, the music scene would been a lot less exciting.
