Kesha Is Proud To Be A 'Woman'

Kesha Is Proud To Be A 'Woman'

Just a week after sending chills down our collective spines with the release of "Praying" Kesha has returned with a second, incredible single you will be singing along to in no time at all. Kesha had been trying to get out of her contract with Sony and Dr. Luke, whom she alleges drugged her, in addition to sexually and verbally assaulting her, during her time recording with him at Sony.

In fact, Kesha said as much in an extensive essay for Rolling Stone. The The Dap-Kings' horn section makes a raucous contribution to the song.

The song itself is all about being proud and independent as a woman.

'I'm a motherfucking woman, baby alright/I don't need a man to be holding me too tight, ' she sings in the chorus.

"We did away with numerous big pop gimmicks: no dancers, no screens, no backing vocalists, no backing tracks - it was just my band and I letting it all out onstage", she writes in a new essay.

"Woman" is inspired by Donald Trump: "I wrote this enraged about Donald Trump's pussy grabbing comment", Kesha recently explained.

'After hearing that I just got in my vehicle screaming "I'm a motherfucking woman!" out of the window'. That is power. I just really f*cking love being a woman and I wanted an anthem for anyone else who wants to yell about being self-sufficient and strong.

"Woman" follows her recent release, 'Praying', which marked her first output since 2013 and her legal battle with producer Dr. Luke.

In a stirring essay, Kesha discusses at length how she was able to be completely herself in the company of her co-writers Drew Pearson and Stephen Wrabel, describing the day they recorded "Woman" as one she'll, "remember forever".

"I had to rise to the occasion and take control of my voice and in the process I gained a lot of confidence in my vocal ability I've never had before.", she adds. As she writes, "It was such a lovely experience to write such a strong female empowerment song with two men, Drew Pearson and Stephen Wrabel, because it reinforces how supportive men can be of women AND feminism".
