Kesha, free at last, shines brighter than ever on 'Rainbow'

There's a handsome way that Kesha delivers the screeching high note near the end of "Praying", the first single from her first album in five years, "Rainbow".

It's not technically ideal, but musically, it's flawless. Though she has been singing for years, she is now truly saying something. "Hunt You Down" bathes the 30-year-old in the light of June Carter-Cash, while her Dolly Parton cover of "Old Flames (Can't Hold a Candle to You)" features a guest appearance from the country legend herself. "Writing songs is the only way I know how to process things".

Bursting onto the pop scene in a haze of glitter in 2009, Kesha (then styled as Ke$ha) stood out as a bold and dynamic newcomer, a high school dropout in successful pursuit of achieving her dreams as a singer and songwriter. In 2005, at age 18, Kesha was signed to producer Dr. Luke's label Kemosabe Records.

With Learn to Let Go came a letter on HuffPost; Praying was joined by an essay for Lenny Letter; Woman arrived with one for Rolling Stone; and Hymn with a piece for Mic. The silly Kesha, who joked about brushing her teeth in Jack Daniels, is still here, too, though the gimmick is gone. On Rainbow, Kesha wastes no time addressing those who attempted to stifle her growth.
