Kesha Rose Sebert was voor het eerst te zien in de clip van Katy Perry bij I Kissed A Girl. Rapper Flo Rida was al snel onder de indruk en vroeg haar het refrein van Right Round in te zingen. De single leverde haar in 2009 direct een nummer-1-hit op in de Verenigde Staten. De single kwam in de Top 40 op de derde plaats. Ke$ha levert daarna met Aminal haar debuutalbum af, waarvan Tik Tok de tweede plaats in de Top 40 bereikt.


Ruim vier jaar en drie (meer) bescheiden Top 40-hits later scoort Ke$ha voor het eerst een nummer 1-hit als Timber (samen met Pitbull) in 2014 de lijst aanvoert.


Na een jarenlange juridische strijd met haar producer, Dr. Luke, keert Kesha in 2017 terug met haar derde album (Rainbow) en de single Playing.



Songtekst

Well, you almost had me fooled
Told me that I was nothing without you
Oh, but after everything you've done
I can thank you for how strong I have become

Cause you brought the flames
And you put me through hell
I had to learn
How to fight for myself
And we both know
All the truth I could tell
I'll just say this is
I wish you farewell

I hope you're somewhere prayin', prayin'
I hope your soul is changin', changin'
I hope you find your peace
Falling on your knees
Prayin'

I'm proud of who I am
No more monsters, I can breathe again
And you said that I was done
Well, you were wrong and now the best is yet to come

Cause I can make it on my own
And I don't need you, I found a strength I've never known
I'll bring thunder, I'll bring rain, oh
When I'm finished, they won't even know your name

Cause you brought the flames
And you put me through hell
I had to learn
How to fight for myself
And we both know
All the truth I could tell
I'll just say this is
I wish you farewell

I hope you're somewhere prayin', prayin'
I hope your soul is changin', changin'
I hope you find your peace
Falling on your knees
Prayin'

Oh, sometimes I pray for you at night
Oh, someday maybe you'll see the light
Oh, some say in life you're gonna get what you give
But some things only God can forgive

I hope you're somewhere prayin', prayin'
I hope your soul is changin', changin'
I hope you find your peace
Falling on your knees
Prayin'
