Kesha quickly rose to fame after her vocals were featured on Flo Rida’s 2009 track, “Right Round.” Just a year later, her music would become the anthem for parties and good times everywhere with the infectious single “Tik Tok.” Her following album, Animal, sold 1.14 million copies that year and rounded out Billboard’s year-end chart at number 20. Besides Tik Tok, the singles “Blah, Blah, Blah” “Your Love Is My Drug” and “Take It Off” also experienced success.
Two years later, Kesha released her second studio album “Warrior,” which featured several successful singles as well. In 2013, Kesha made another international hit with Flo Rida: “Timber.”
Now, in 2018, Kesha has not released music since despite the quick momentum of her success. Instead, her fame mostly stems from her lawsuit of famous music producer Dr. Luke for sexual assault and emotional abuse.
Her recent surprise performance at Coachella was the first focus on her music in quite some time, in fact, and it has us wondering how her finances have been since she hasn’t been working.
Still, thanks to the millions of dollars in earnings from her highly successful albums and accompany sold-out tours, Kesha has been able to save a considerable amount of money. Though she was estimated to be worth $40 million in 2014, a stint in rehab for eating disorders and her Dr. Luke lawsuit led to some draining of her bank account. According to multiple sources, she’s now worth $25 million, which will is likely to continue to decline until she produces new music.
This year, Kesha has been trying to scrape together some cash by selling multiple of her real estate properties. In June 2018, she sold her California home for $1.8 million. Just last month, Kesha sold her Tennessee home as well for $1.45 million, indicating the singer will do what it takes to make ends meet while she sorts out her present situation.
