Are we going to talk about how Kesha’s “Woman” is what we really wanted from “Dirty Love”?

Kesha is back, guys.

Last week she dropped “Praying”, which is included below for That Whistle Note.

And then, before any of us had time to fully process what we experienced, she released “Woman”. We got a woman being powerful anthem and a woman power anthem in one month! 2017 is looking up.

Take some time to dance around your apartment and appreciate this song on it’s own.
Listen to it again knowing that she wrote it in response to Donald Trump.
Realize that Kesha is covered in sequins, partying in a bar, and she throws in another casual whistle note, just to prove she can.

Now, let’s go back to 2012/2013 when “Dirty Love” was made.


Kesha is also partying in a bar, streamers all around, singing about how she doesn’t need a man to buy her things. The difference here is that she has to accommodate the patriarchy a little bit and reassure everyone that she does want a man for The Sex. The video also takes place in a parallel universe where Iggy Pop doesn’t exist.

“Woman” is the revamped version of “Dirty Love”. She finally got to make her damn song. I’m so excited for the rest of this album.
