Kesha was provided with outside producers and Kesha and Kemosabe had agreed to work with about a dozen of them. The album was nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards, marking her first of two nominations. Illustrator and artist Robert Beatty designed the album artwork for Rainbow along with art director Brian Roettinger.
Redirected from Boogie Feet). Rainbow is the third studio album by American singer Kesha. It was released on August 11, 2017 by Kemosabe and RCA Records. Primarily a pop record, Rainbow incorporates elements of pop rock, glam rock, neo soul, and country pop. Its lyrical themes range from letting go of the past, finding forgiveness within oneself for past mistakes, self-worth, and female empowerment.
Thankfully, the rest of Rainbow lets Kesha be her usual OTT self. Studio banter is left in; on some tracks she breaks down into laughter like her ad-libbed, I like your beard. Since Warrior, Kesha had fought for rock tracks, with limited success; Iggy Pop made that album, but a very toned-down version. If there’s a reason that Rainbow doesn’t seem cohesive or an album that autonomously belongs to Kesha, it’s more a byproduct of her situation. Kesha still owes two more albums to the label she fought to leave, and here she grapples with her commercial whims. While Praying is hanging on at adult pop radio, very little is positioned to follow it.
With this album, Kesha gives herself a space to release her rage, but also recognizes the incredible power in honesty, self-reflection, and having the guts to stare injustice in the face and tell it to fuck off. Rainbow’s greatest triumph is not hearing Kesha rip out the gnarled pain that had been nesting inside her, or finding catharsis in defiance - it’s that it makes a point of expressing the frustration, hurt, and even joy in what comes next.
After a five-year hiatus, pop superstar Kesha returns better than ever on her third studio album, ‘Rainbow. Five years can be an eternity in pop music. That’s how long that Kesha was ‘out of commission. It seemed as if one day, she was scoring hits on the Billboard Hot 100, and the next, she was gone. The five-year hiatus was tough, as Kesha was embroiled in an intense, legal argument with Dr. Luke, the producer who helmed her first two albums. Despite a turbulent, trying time in her life and career, she’s back, better than ever on her third studio album, Rainbow.
Rainbow,' Kesha's rich, masterful third LP, is far more than a kiss-off to old demons - it’s an artistic feat, as she unites stylistic forays with her sharp, weathered lyricism. By Eric Renner Brown. August 07, 2017 at 12:00 PM EDT.
Rainbow' marks a new beginning for Kesha, one based around inner strength and musical exploration as she achieves her vision for the album by enlisting a roster of collaborators ranging from Eagles of Death Metal to Dolly Parton. Ben Folds produced the title track with Kesha, while Ricky Reed produced and wrote numerous tracks as well. Wrabel co-wrote a collaboration that features the Dap-Kings horn section
