NEW YORK, Feb. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Emerging pop superstar Kesha has signed to RCA Records. An incredible buzz surrounds this burgeoning new performer, she's currently featured on Flo Rida's hit single "Right Round" which is exploding up the Pop chart and has an upcoming collaboration in the works with 3OH!3.
"Kesha is a unique and innovative talent," says Barry Weiss, Chairman and CEO, RCA/JIVE Label Group. "I am so happy that Rani Hancock introduced her to the company and am thrilled this dynamic young artist has chosen RCA as her home. We look forward working with the incomparable Dr. Luke to bring Kesha's artistic vision to the forefront of music."
Signed to RCA through acclaimed hitmaker Dr. Luke (Kelly Clarkson, Britney Spears, Katy Perry, Missy Elliott), Kesha, whose sound has been likened to a mix of Madonna and the Beastie Boys, was heavily sought after by nearly every major label. Self-described as an "anti-pop star," her distinctive electro-dance sound and down-to-earth attitude have made her a coveted new artist.
"Kesha is a riveting, fresh talent, with a compelling, unique voice, and powerful writing skills," states Dr. Luke. "I'm very excited and honored to work alongside Barry Weiss, Tom Corson, Rani Hancock and the rest of the RCA team to share her talents with the rest of the world."
Twenty-one-year-old Kesha hails originally from Nashville, TN and currently resides in Los Angeles, CA. She is currently in the studio working with Dr. Luke and powerhouse Max Martin (Kelly Clarkson, Pink, Britney Spears) on her debut album, due out in late 2009.
