News: Ke$ha - We R Who We R

Ke$ha - We R Who We R

Ke$ha - We R Who We R

Well, The Prophet Blog and Chart Rigger must be squirming in their matching trash bag onesies right now, because their stinky princess K$UX's new track is a proper T-U-N-E.

"We R Who We R" premiered moments ago on Z100, and it's going to be BIG. Rull big.

Frivolously fabulous lyrics celebrating freaks 'n' geeks (sound familiar?), vocal stutters (I'M SUCH A SUCKER FOR VOCAL STUTTERING), and an ever-so-slightly modified regurgitation of the "Tik Tok" beat (that sounds a little bit likeRihanna's "Who's That Chick," which sounds a little bit like a Ke$ha song). What else could you need to celebrate the re-release of Animal?! 

Ke$ha is working here again with the usual suspects. Dr. Luke, Benny Blanco, and Ammo co-wrote as well as produced the song. That means this fits neatly in with Ke$ha's four previous top 10 smash hits. It is uptempo dance-pop with a trashy edge providing great Friday night party music. The difference here is there is a specific point to the song, and it is injected with genuine humor.

There is humor here as well. Only Ke$ha would really sing about looking "sick and sexy-fied," wearing hot pants in the club, and the extra credibility given by, "Jesus on my necklace." Ke$ha's sing-speak style is unlikely to ever win any vocal awards, but it is distinctive and works in the context of leading a party atmosphere. As a kick-off to Cannibal, a bonus end-of-the-year EP of sorts, "We R Who We R" is solid.

Hot and dangerous
If you're one of us, then roll with us
‘Cause we make the hipsters fall in love
And we've got hot-pants on and up
And yes of course we does, we running this town just like a club
And no, you don't wanna mess with us
Got Jesus on my necklace

I've got that glitter on my eyes
Stockings ripped all up the side
Looking sick and sexyfied
So let's go-o-o (Let's go!)

[Chorus:]
Tonight we're going har har-har ha-ha-hard
Just like the world is our our-our our-our-ours
We're tearin' it apart part-part pa-pa-part
You know we're superstars, we are who we are!
We're dancing like we're dum dum-dum dum-dum-dumb
Our bodies go num num-num num-num-numb
We'll be forever youn youn-youn youn-youn-young
You know we're superstars, we are who we are!

DJ turn it up
It's about damn time to live it up
I'm so sick of being so serious
It's making my brain delirious!
I'm just talkin' the truth

I'm telling you 'bout the shit we do
We're sellin' our clothes, sleepin' in cars
Dressin' it down, hittin' on dudes (HARD!)

I've got that glitter on my eyes
Stockings ripped all up the side
Looking sick and sexyfied
So let's go-o-o (Let's go!)

[Chorus:]
Tonight we're going har har-har ha-ha-hard
Just like the world is our our-our our-our-ours
We're tearin' it apart part-part pa-pa-part
You know we're superstars, we are who we are!
We're dancing like we're dum dum-dum dum-dum-dumb
Our bodies go num num-num num-num-numb
We'll be forever youn youn-youn youn-youn-young
You know we're superstars, we are who we are!

DJ turn it up (up up up up up up)
DJ turn it up (up up up up up up)
DJ turn it up (up up up up up up)
DJ turn it up (up up up up up up uuuup)

[Chorus:]
Tonight we're going har har-har ha-ha-hard
Just like the world is our our-our our-our-ours
We're tearin' it apart part-part pa-pa-part
You know we're superstars, we are who we are!
We're dancing like we're dum dum-dum dum-dum-dumb
Our bodies go num num-num num-num-numb
We'll be forever youn youn-youn youn-youn-young
You know we're superstars, we are who we are!
