Riff: Ke$ha – “Die Young”

Dec 3, 2012

It’s pretty obvious that you’ve got a crush (you know)/That magic in your pants, it’s making me blush (for sure)

from Die Young lyrics by Ke$ha

You know you’ve hit a creative rut when you start borrowing from Flo Rida. Featuring a similar acoustic hook to the rent-a-rapper’s “Good Feeling,” this lead single continues with the ‘live for the moment’ theme she exhausted on her debut. Two tracks in and Warrior already feels bereft of ideas.
