Zedd Releases Collaboration with Kesha Amidst Drama

Last week, and both teased a new version of his song ‘True Colors’, and now the song has arrived, and sounds more powerful as ever, three years after her last single.

has been in the news for the past year for her heated legal battle with ex-manager and Luke “Dr. Luke” Gottwald, as she’s been struggling to escape her contract with Sony. The legal proceedings and her contract have prevented her from releasing any new music, yet somehow Interscope and RCA/Kemosabe found a middle ground and allowed Kesha to feature on ’s track.

The two performed “True Colors” together at earlier this month, and then as now, the collaboration’s aim is obvious and effective, as Kesha belts ’s lyrics:

All my life, one page at a time

I’ll show you my, my true colors

No I won’t apologize for the fire in my eyes

Let me show you my, my true colors, it ain’t no rainbow

 

tweeted that Kemosabe Records, the label owned by Sony under which Kesha is contracted, gave them permission to release the song, saying he didn’t use any “loop holes.” “Thanks for the clarification @Zedd …” Dr. Luke tweeted in response.

 

“This is more than a song. It’s a declaration of my truth,” Kesha tweeted yesterday, feeling grateful for the new single. She hopes that it’ll pave way for making more of her own in the future.
