Will You Be Buying: Ke$ha’s ‘Warrior’

Published: Tuesday 4th Dec 2012 by Rashad

December 4th marks the day pop starlet Ke$ha brings her sophomore album ‘Warrior’ to battle for Billboard’s top spot.

Indeed, to say the ‘Die Young’ diva has already made a killing afront Billboard’s Hot 100 would be an understatement as the album’s lead single has been a mainstay aboard the ranking’s upper half for most of its chart life.  However, like many her contemporary, the singer’s success on the singles front has come at an inverse of her album’s sales performance.

Barely shipping platinum over two years since its debut, Ke$ha’s introductory set ‘Animal’ saw its singles take big bites out of history books while its parent album barely made a bark.  So tell us:  Are you willing to help its successor sing a different tune?

That Grape Juice’s Favourite ‘Warrior’ Tracks:

* Thinking Of You

* Die Young

* Supernatural

* Dirty Love (ft. Iggy Pop)

That Grape Juice’s Least Favourite ‘Warrior’ Tracks:

* All That Matters

* Only Wanna Dance With You

That Grape Juice Rating: 3/5

Conclusion: ‘Warrior’ has a clear agenda to mature a sound and artist many assumed was “seasonal” – and manages to achieve this to a satisfying degree.

Still, Ke$ha excels most when being unapologetically Ke$ha. Rebellious, edgy, and dripping with jaw-dropping metaphors.

    • Vandrea December 4, 2012

      LOL you’re pressed. You know that TGJ is anti-Rihanna and tends to be pro-all of her rivals. If you find yourself that irked by the bias, then perhaps here is not a place for you to be. Leaving all these ass-hurt comments ain’t gonna change s*** about how things are run at this blog.

    NO. But I liked her last two albums tho that I didn’t buy….sleazy, tik tok, disgusting my fav song by her.

  11. mr.m December 4, 2012

    Are you kidding me? who buys this s***?

    Aritst like Ke$ha, Rihanna .. etc AKA “whores”
    Don’t deserve my $$$ for their “pop-corn” music .. Seriously!
    You listen to their music max for 2-4 weeks .. then throw it up forever
    Free download link anyone?

  12. @091094_ December 4, 2012

    I already downloaded it illegally thought It couldent be that bad, and tbh its not its a solid american pop album, not really any distinctive songs on there, mostly fillers, I must say I do love supernatural though it is a strong song I love it, and tbh Kesha is a definate threat, maybe not as strong as rihanna but she is a heavy pop contender she has the capability of dragging with her singles, she is to fear only kesha, katy perry or taylor swift could compete with rihanna for that number one. Follow mw guys 🙂

  13. Monstarebel (THE UNAPOLOGETIC PRINCE) December 4, 2012

  19. mobwife: operation kill the b*tch December 4, 2012

  20. mobwife: operation kill the b*tch December 4, 2012

    @SAM/TGJ,

    Did I miss the Rob Kardashian tweeter rant post? –>>

    “This is a lesson to all the young women out there to not have unprotected s** with multiple men especially while in a relationship.

    I just don’t get how a woman can do that to her body. And your career hasn’t even launched yet. I don’t put up with sloppiness. LOYALTY.

    But when a woman disrespects herself by messing with more than 20 men all while being in a relationship with a Faithful man…

    When a woman cheats on you with one man I can live with that. People make mistakes, trust me. I have forgiven numerous times”

    <<—– I mean DAMNNNNNN, he went in!!

  21. Steve December 4, 2012

    ‘Out alive’ & ‘last goodbye’ are the highlights on the album for me.

  22. BitchICan’tEvenSpellWelfare December 4, 2012

    “Will You Be Buying: Ke$ha’s ‘Warrior’”

    L O L !!!!!

  23. Genesis December 4, 2012

    Only an idiot with horri-bad taste in music would even consider such a thing. Hell no I won’t be buying this jokery.

  24. Forever Animal December 4, 2012

    Hell yes I brought it. Pop perfection

  25. Emptytvr December 4, 2012

    Yuck. She’s about as soothing to the ears as the sound of a blender.

  26. KERI HILSON’S 100% SYNTHETIC BLONDE SHORT CUT WIG FOUND ON FLOOR OF PETSMART PET GROOMING STAFF BREAK AREA December 4, 2012

    Her music is made for 12 year olds. At least Katy Perry’s songs have some depth to them.
