A brash and driven pop singer/songwriter, Kesha was born in Los Angeles but moved at the age of four to Nashville, where her mother had inked a publishing deal. Before finishing high school, Kesha returned to L.A. for the sake of jump-starting her own music career.
She came into contact with Dr. Luke, the co-writer and co-producer of Kelly Clarkson's "Since U Been Gone," who was impressed with her demo recordings. Kesha penned the Veronicas' "This Love" and later contributed background vocals to Britney Spears' "Lace and Leather," both of which were released in 2008, but the biggest turning point came in 2009, when she was tapped to contribute vocals on Flo Rida's Dr. Luke-produced "Right Round," a number one Hot 100 hit.
She subsequently signed to RCA, and her debut album, Animal, featuring collaborations with Dr. Luke, Max Martin, and Benny Blanco, was released in early 2010. Animal proved to be a big hit, reaching the top of the Billboard 200 and spinning off the number one single "TiK ToK."
