Ke$ha Wants “Revenge” In New Demo

By: Becky Bain / July 11, 2011

Ke$ha is getting back to work slamming out a follow-up to her Animal and Cannibal tunes, though we’re not sure what to expect from her this time around. “Tease Me” was perfect for the dancefloor, while previously unreleased “31 Seconds Alone” was a bit underwhelming. Today the glitter-minded gods have given us “Revenge”, a bare bones recording of Auto-Tune abuser serving up one cold dish of revenge for a former flame. Check it out below.

Ke$ha – “Revenge”

“I’ll have the last laugh / When the knives deep in your back / I’ll get away with this / No trace of evidence / I’ll seal it with a kiss,” sings a squeaky-voiced K$ on this 90s-sounding tale of revenge.

We don’t want to judge this song based solely on a demo recording, but we will anyway: this pop-punk departure from K-Dolla’s recent spin through electro-pop is a big, generic step back. And no mention of glitter! Are we sure this is really Ke$ha?!

There’s no word whether this is an old demo from previous studio sessions or if this tune is intended for her next 70-inspired album, but we’re much happier sticking to “Blow” for now.
