Breakout artist Ke$ha has come out of nowhere to become one of the hottest pop acts in the U.S.
Her debut album, Animal, sits at No. 8 on the Billboard Top 200, and it’s 2 on the Digital Albums Chart. The album has had 600,000 sales per week since January.
She’s like a 2010 Avril Lavigne — style, catchy beats, and popular songs.
Ke$ha’s songs have been downloaded more than 8.5 million times in the U.S. alone.
Ke$ha performed her third single "Your Love Is My Drug" on Saturday Night Live on April 17. "Your Love Is My Drug" is 7 on the Digital Songs chart this week and is rapidly climbing the chart at Top 40 radio.
Ke$ha will join Rihanna on a 25-city tour this summer. Only a year ago, she was doing her first gigs ever, wowing the crowd at Lollapalooza.
