After nearly five years, Kesha returns to music with a bang. After much anticipation, the "Praying" singer has blessed us her full-length album RainbowRainbow is not only remarkably candid and forthright, but is infused with feminist anthems, gorgeously composed ballads, and deeply intimate accounts of Kesha's personal experiences and relationships.

Her brilliant new work comes on the heels of her tumultuous legal battle with her former producer/mentor Dr. Luke. However, for Kesha, this album is a clear symbol of evolution. The album evokes simultaneous feelings of healing and triumph: "Oh, but after everything you've done I can thank you for how strong I have become / 'Cause you brought the flames and you put me through hell / I had to learn how to fight for myself / and we both know all the truth I could tell / I'll just say this is "I wish you farewell," Kesha belts in "Praying."

With a sparse list of features—exclusively Eagles of Death Metal and Dolly Parton—Kesha owns her past and channels an empowered, fearless voice to not only reflect but to look ahead. This newfound emboldened attitude is easily spotted in tracks "Don’t Let the Bastards Get You Down” and “Learn to Let Go.” Here, Kesha truly comes into her own and embodies a completely reinvented persona. Rainbow is uniquely authentic and startlingly truthful in the most positive of ways. It's evident that Kesha has found her rainbow after all.
