Kesha’s career spans far and wide: In the nearly 15 years since her first single debuted, her music has included rap, country, electronic, and rock. Listen to an album like the one from 2010 Animal and his new album gag order, back to back, it is not that he has matured, but that he refuses to be one thing. There’s a lot going on inside your head.
To celebrate SELF’s June 2023 cover story, we’ve created the Ultimate Kesha Workout playlist. It might be the soundtrack to your next gym session, sure, but it’s truly evergreen: Need to go for an angry walk? Put it on. Do you want to dance around your room? It’s great for that too. Do you want to cry a little while going hard on the elliptical? She has you. There’s practically a Kesha song for every mood, which is partly why her stuff is so good.
Weaving through her entire discography, the Ultimate Kesha Workout Playlist begins with the dark and emotional protagonist of gag order. Then we’ll pick up the tempo, get pretty excited (remix of Until the World Ends anyone?), and chill back out with songs that reflect Kesha’s rawest self. Perhaps, as you listen, you can catch a glimpse of yours, too.
