After a very challenging few years, Kesha is finally back in business with a powerful song that might just become your new feminist anthem. After releasing comeback ballad “Praying” last week, she has now shared a video for “Woman,” a collaboration with the Dap-Kings, which is here to remind fans that she is still very much her own woman.
“Don’t buy me a drink, I make my money,” she croons. “Don’t touch my weave, don’t call me honey.” Kesha, who saw her sexual assault case against her former producer Dr. Luke dismissed, co-wrote the song with two men, Drew Pearson and Stephen Wrabel — and that’s no coincidence, as she explained in an essay for Rolling Stone. “It was such a beautiful experience to write such a strong female empowerment song with two men … because it reinforces how supportive men can be of women AND feminism,” she wrote. “I have always been a feminist, but for much of my life I felt like a little girl trying to figure things out,” she continued. “In the past few years, I have felt like a woman more than ever. I just feel the strength and awesomeness and power of being female.”
