LISTEN: Kesha Releases Ridiculously Catchy, Explicit New Single ‘Woman’
After baring her soul on her comeback track, "Praying," Kesha dropped another new song called "Woman" out of nowhere on Thursday (July 13) and it's an absolute anthem.
Clocking in at three and a half minutes, the follow-up single hears the pop star round up her ladies, declare her independence and hit back at sexism. It includes some roaring production, a horn section performed by The Dap-Kings and a catchy melody because Kesha is, of course, a wiz at pop songwriting. "I'm a motherf**king woman, baby, alright/ I don't need a man to be holding too tight/ I'm a motherf**king woman, baby, that's right/ I'm just having with my ladies here tonight/ I'm a motherf**ing," she chants during the hook.
"I have always been a feminist, but for much of my life I felt like a little girl trying to figure things out. In the past few years, I have felt like a woman more than ever. I just feel the strength and awesomeness and power of being female," she wrote in an essay via Rolling Stone. "We hold the key to humanity. We decide if we populate the Earth, and if so, with whom. We could just decide not to have any more kids and the human race would be over. That is power. I just really fucking love being a woman and I wanted an anthem for anyone else who wants to yell about being self-sufficient and strong. (Yes, men, this song can be for you too.)"
If that wasn't enough, Kesha released the song in conjunction with the video, which she co-directed with her brother Logan and shot at Delaware's Oddity Bar. It's a bar simple affair, where viewers see the singer perform the track alongside ladies of all kinds. If "Praying" and "Woman" are indications of the singer's forthcoming album, Rainbow, all we have to say is: Welcome back, Kesha!
