WARRIOR
Ke$sha
(Sony)

It's often hard nowadays, with so many fingers in the production pie, to know where an artist begins and the overlord team ends. 

Ke$sha, does have a voice of her, which tends to be more evident on Dirty Love, an ironically lustful duet with the man who refuses to grow old, Iggy Pop, and Only Want To Dance With You. 

Mostly though, Dr Luke and his occasional collaborator Cirkut, plant the Warrior princess in a bed of squelchy synth rhythms and beats for the generation that truly parties as if there is no tomorrow. 

And on the two lead in tracks and hit singles, Warrior and Die Young, Ke$ha seems to be quite happy to be the rallying point for the misfits and bad kids who "were born to break the doors down".
