The Most Influential Album Releases of 2017



Rainbow by Kesha
Genre: Country/Rock

No, this isn’t the same Ke$ha from “Tik Tok” and “Blow.” Maybe in body, but not in spirit. After recovering from a highly publicized and traumatizing court case about physical, sexual, and emotional abuse, Kesha has returned (sans dollar sign) to show just how strong she really is. This is not an album about mourning or wallowing, though. It’s about surviving and proving everyone wrong, and that’s exactly what she’s done.
