So what do fans get this time around? Well, Ke$ha kicks off the dark, electro track with a big laugh and a command to “party.” Razor-edged synths kick in over a super-thumping beat as the singer and her pals, who happen to be “pretty and sick” and “young and bored,” get ready to dance in a crash pad that has “dirt and glitter” covering the floor.
Ke$ha’s Auto-Tuned yodeling comes over the beat as she proclaims, “This place about to blow,” during the song’s scream-along party-anthem chorus. The song has many of the elements of a Ke$ha tune — carpe diem attitude and grinding beats — but it also shows the darker side of the singer with lyrics like: “We get what we want/ We do what you don’t.” The song’s mantra is pretty much summed up in one of the song’s choice lines: “It’s time to lose your mind and let the crazy out.”
“This year has been carnivorous and life-changing. I have my rowdy, gorgeous fans to thank for taking me on the ride of a lifetime,” the pop star said in a statement. “My only goal with this record is to keep them dancing. The songs on Cannibal were made to inspire people to ignore any hate or judgment and be themselves unapologetically. It’s the perfect companion to Animal and I hope you guys like it. And if you don’t like it — bite me.”
