The edgy producer-singer released Art Angels in 2015, her follow-up to 2012's Visions. Her trippy video for her track with Janelle Monáe, "Venus Fly," came out in February. This summer, she created her own synth soundpack with sound equipment company Roli.

It's been a big summer for Kesha: in July, she dropped "Woman," an empowering anthem from her new album, Rainbow—which came out last month—that's the culmination of a complex creative (and personal) journey for the singer. She's currently on tour in Japan.
