Kesha: “Animal”

Today, January 1, 2010, Kesha released her debut studio album “Animal.” The album peaked at no. 1 on the US Billboard 200, enjoying an 85-week chart run.

This dance-pop album houses the seminal ‘Tik Tok’ single – a production by Dr. Luke and Benny Blanco. The song also reached no. 1 on the Hot 100. 

‘Tik Tok’ has samples of ‘Five Minutes of Funk,’ by Whodini, and it’s been sampled in several songs since: ‘Polka Face’ by Weird Al Yankovic, ‘On and On’ by Girl Talk, ‘Like OMG Baby’ by DJ Earworm, and ‘Flik Flok’ by The Kleptones just to list a few. 

Today, ‘Tik Tok’ is certified 8x platinum, and “Animal,” triple platinum, by the Recording Industry Association of America.
