Newcomer Ke$ha Tops Billboard 100

December 23, 2009 By:

Everyone has been wondering who this new chick on the music scene Ke$ha is! And no, that’s not a typo—she actually has a dollar sign in her name in place of an “S.” By now, you’ve probably heard the song “TiK ToK" on the radio, which is Ke$ha’s big new hit!

In fact, the track has just bumped Jay-Z and Alicia Keys off the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100! Pretty big for a brand new kid on the block. The 22-year-old singer, who will release her album Animal on January 5, tweeted her excitement this afternoon.

“I’m #1 on billboard,” Ke$ha wrote. “I don’t know what to do I’m gonna do a handstand holy s— thank you everyone who has ever talked [to me]“.

The first we heard of Ke$ha was her cameo in Flo Rida’s huge summer hit “Right Round.” She’s now gone on to work with Pitbull and Miley Cyrus, and recently said in an interview that she would “totally collaborate with Taylor Swift.”
