It may not surprise you that Ke$ha collaborated with at least one half of the Black Keys on her new set “Warrior,” particularly after hearing her track “Dirty Love” featuring Iggy Pop.
The “whooooa” of the chorus will ring reminiscent of the blues-rock outfit’s “Lonely Boy.” But lets just say “Boy” is legions cleaner.
“Dirty Love” starts with a Mickey Mouseketeerian introduction between Ke$ha and the legendary Stooges frontman, and the politeness stops there. They take turns referencing the nasty, and not just your, erm, vanilla variety.
Is it that she wants between your cheeks? Or is it sheets that make it dirty? Pop makes a reference to Santorum, in both its noun and pronoun forms. Both vocals appear to have been completed in a couple takes, and if my fantasy serves me at all, Ke$ha and Iggy Pop then finished their sessions and set fire to a limo full of sex toys. Because that’s what this sounds like.
It’s terrible, I hate it. I’m also lusty for it, and entertained. These may all be the same thing.
“Warrior” is out on Nov. 30.
UPDATE: Wouldn’t you know it? Ke$ha’s “Warrior,” the whole album, is now streaming for free via iTunes, check it.
