Kesha Rose Sebert, better known as Kesha, is an American pop singer-songwriter. In 2005, at 18, she was signed to Dr. Luke’s record label, Kemosabe Entertainment, and publishing company. Although an active musician since then, singing background vocals and writing songs for other artists, her breakthrough came in early 2009 after appearing on Flo Rida’s No. 1 single, “Right Round.”
Kesha’s debut single “Tik Tok,” released in late 2009, reached No. 1 in 11 countries. Her debut album, “Animal,” was released in January 2010; by September it had sold 2 million copies worldwide and generated three more top-10 singles.
Kesha has cited artists such as Madonna, Debbie Harry, Queen, Johnny Cash, Aaron Neville, Bob Dylan and Beastie Boys as musical influences. Her music incorporates elements of dance-pop, and she uses a spoken-word rapping style on many songs.
