Before finishing high school, Kesha returned to L.A. for the sake of jump-starting her own music career. She came into contact with Dr. Luke, the co-writer and co-producer of Kelly Clarkson’s “Since U Been Gone” (among several other hits), who was impressed with her demo recordings. The biggest turning point came in 2009, when she was asked to contribute vocals on Flo Rida’s Dr. Luke-produced “Right Round,” a number one Hot 100 hit.
Her debut single “Tik Tok”, released in late 2009, reached number one in eleven countries. Her debut album, Animal, was released in January 2010 and debuted at number one in the US, Canada and Greece. By September 2010, Kesha had sold two million albums worldwide and released three more top ten singles from Animal. The album was re-released with a companion extended play, Cannibal, in November, preceded by the chart-topping lead single, “We R Who We R”.
