Kesha Shines At No 1 With One Of 2017's Most Acclaimed Albums

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Kesha's 'Rainbow' takes the superstar singer roaring back to the top of the charts, as it debuts at No. 1 on The Billboard 200 this week. Called "the best music of her career" by Rolling Stone, 'Rainbow' (Kemosabe Records/RCA Records) becomes Kesha's second No. 1 album, following her debut, 'Animal,' which entered atop the chart in January 2010.

'Rainbow' earned 116,000 equivalent album units in the week ending August 17. 'Rainbow' also debuts at No. 1 on The Billboard Top Album Sales chart. Outside of the US, 'Rainbow' debuted at #1 in Canada as well, and top 5 in the United Kingdom, Australia, Ireland and New Zealand. In addition, 'Rainbow' hit #1 at iTunes in nearly 30 markets around the world, and marked Kesha's best ever chart debut in almost a dozen.

Called "an artistic feat" by Entertainment Weekly, 'Rainbow' finds Kesha at "her defiant, unbridled best" (USA Today), boasting collaborators ranging from Ben Folds to Eagles of Death Metal to Dolly Parton. The album has garnered praise from the New York Times, Billboard, NPR Music and more.

Kesha recently gave a "triumphant" (Elle) performance of the album's first single, "Praying," on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

Kesha's upcoming 'Rainbow Tour' has already sold out. The 21-city tour will launch September 26 in Birmingham, AL, following appearances at KAABOO and the iHeart Radio Music Festival. Dates here:
