Reading now: 476

Kesha’s soaring ballad “Praying” was released five years ago today, but the story it told about her time with producer Dr. Luke is one that is still yet to be resolved.The “TikTok” singer famously filed suit against Dr.

Luke in 2014 after working on her first two albums together, alleging intense mental and sexual abuse at the hands of the producer.The civil suit devolved into a years-long legal battle of defamation and breach of contract allegations that remain unsettled to this day.The story reached its cultural zenith in mid-2017, when Kesha reflected on her struggle in the powerful, timely song “Praying”.Kesha’s case became emblematic of the growing #MeToo movement at the time, and this powerful piece on the alleged abuse she’d suffered was received with an outpouring of love.From Taylor Swift pledging $250,000 to her legal fees to Lady Gaga personally meeting with and later testifying for her, Kesha’s story made waves throughout the industry and the entirety of pop culture.In the years since, however, this hopeful story-line has almost been lost to time.Kesha’s two subsequent albums, Rainbow in 2017 and High Road in 2020, failed to garner much attention.
