Ke$ha,, who just won’t let go of the No. 1 spot with her single “TiK ToK,” is about to release a new video for “Blah Blah Blah,” the next single off her debut album.
The 22-year-old Los Angeles dance artist’s album Animal, dropped Jan. 5th, and “Tik Tok,” which broke big on radio in October, was downloaded a near record 610,000 times in one week. It’s passed two million downloads on iTunes since its release in November.
The song has also been the No. 1 greatest airplay gainer on Top 40 radio, topping powerhouses like Jay-Z and 2009’s other darling Taylor Swift.
Internationally, “Tik Tok” has topped the singles charts in three countries. The tune been described as everything from Hip-Hop to electro pop.
The “Blah, Blah, Blah” video unfolds outside of what looks like a club and Ke$ha is seen dealing with a couple of pushy dudes outside.
She ends up in a bowling alley, for a little wholesome fun. Pinheads 3OH!3 join her on the track.
“The whole concept of the video was a bunch of douche-y guys macking on me as usual, and me making them eat their toupees or other various items,” she told MTV. “At one point, I get to be strapped to this harness and bouncing around everywhere, and it was really cool.”
Ke$ha’s synth-pop style is giving Lady Gaga a run for the tween and young teen set. Her “Just Dance” single sold 419,000 copies over the Christmas holidays last year.
That’s not the only place Ke$ha has popped up. She also can be heard on No. 1 hits for Britney Spears, Katy Perry, Kelly Clarkson and Avril Lavigne.
“I’ve always known I wanted to be a performer,” she says. “There’s video of me at age five, naked and covered in body paint, saying, ‘I’m going to be a rock star and there’s no way anyone is going to stop me!’ It’s my calling. If I don’t go for it, I’m going to feel like a tool when I’m 50.”
The album will also feature Ke$ha’s collaborations with veteran hitmaker Max Martin (Pink, Kelly Clarkson, Britney Spears) and in-demand songwriter/producer Benny Blanco (Katy Perry, 3OH!3, Spank Rock).
It’s officially described as an edgy collection of hard-hitting electro-pop songs, made all the more irresistible by Ke$ha’s high-octane punk energy, irreverent lyrics and edgy attitude.
The video, which hasn’t been released in the U.S. yet, looks like it comes form Yahoo Italy, which may explain the subtitles in the beginning.
