Jam of the Week: "Die Young" by Ke$ha


Start swishing a bottle of Jack and break out the glitter, because the new Jam of the Week is brought to you by none other than Ke$ha. In her latest single, "Die Young", Ke$ha explores new musical depths while proving yet again that she is the baddest white female sorta rapper of all time. (Sorry 'bout it, Kreayshawn!)

Thematically, "Die Young" is not at all unlike Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream", as both songs explore youthful invincibility from different perspectives. However, there's nothing youthful about Ke$ha's new lease on music!  The last thing I ever expected her to do was grow up, but "Die Young" certainly reflects the beard aficionado's growth as not only a true artist, but also as a person.

In true brat fashion, Ke$ha used to demand, "Just show me where your dick's at" ("Blah Blah Blah"). However, in her latest endeavor, she is more respectful and reserved, opining, "That magic in your pants is making me blush (fo sho)." And gone are the days when she needed to be plastered as fuck to have a good time. In "Die Young", all she needs is the comfort of some other girl's man to make the night worth while. I'm impressed with your maturity, Kes$ha. Utterly impressed.

Take a listen to this glorious jam and live this next week like you're gonna die young!
