Ke$ha (Columbia)

No, that dollar sign ain’t a typo; it’s more like a statement of intent for one-woman chart-dominating machine Kesha Rose Sebert.

Listening to her debut LP, which was assisted by Dr Luke, producer behind hits for Kelly Clarkson, Avril Lavigne etc, there’s no denying the head-bopping catchiness and sassy irreverence of tunes such as Tik Tok and Back$tabber.

But too many others dissolve into a mess of synths, vocoder effects and obnoxious teen attitude.
