It's easy to see why Ke$ha can get up people's noses, the Tennessee-born singer sports a very strong accent, perhaps very harsh - but this hasn't stopped her taking 2010 under her wing, with 4 Top 20's under her belt in the UK. Kicking off with the strong 'Tik Tok', it was clear we had a little party animal on our hands, Sebert boasting boozy antics, and odd tales (such as not wanting guys unless they looked like a wrinkly rockstar, Mick Jagger - bizarre). Her collaboration with 30H!3, 'Blah Blah Blah' saw a continuation of bizarre slurs, telling boys to zip their lips like padlocks. The song, whilst strong, wasn't a patch on the anthemic 'Tik Tok'. The third single, 'Your Love Is My Drug' and 'Take It Off', both continued the Ke$ha we were growing to love/hate - both drunk anthems, that you can expect to hear at parties across the world.
So, with 'We R Who We R', the first single from 'Cannibal', an add-on to the first album, 'Animal' - has she created a new Tik Tok? Well, they both have a Dr Luke production in hand, and Dr Luke is a name that promises party bangers. As soon as the opening chorus lyric 'tonight we're going ha-ar-ar-ar-ar-ard' is delivered, you just know you won't be able to resist throwing your hands in the air for a party. The song is very much everything we've heard before from Ke$ha, but so long as it's addictive, Ke$ha has succeeded! A synth beat with lots of beeping, kicks off the song slowly, but her powerful vocals delve into the song immediately.
While I have no idea what 'sick and sexified' means, or what having 'jesus on your necklace' has to do with anything - this is Ke$ha through and through. There's no progression in this song, from all the previous singles - but if you ordered a good party song, then Ke$ha certainly delivered that.
