Few artists release music so widely divergent in such a short period of time as the latest recordings from Ke$ha. Today she has released a new remix of the song "Sleazy," one of the most popular tracks from the EP "Cannibal," with a superstar quartet of guest rappers. Lil' Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, T.I., and Andre 3000 of Outkast all contribute verses. It is a worthy update to the track and "Sleazy 2.0" will be one of the top new party tracks of the holiday season.

In an entirely different vein Ke$ha has recorded a highly emotional reading of Bob Dylan's classic "Don't Think Twice It's Alright." The recording will be included on Amnesty International's massive four disc tribute to the music of Bob Dylan titled Chimes Of Freedom and due for release January 24, 2012. Ke$ha told Rolling Stone that her initial intent was to record the song in a style that represented a suicide note from a female point of view. Instead, it became even more personal and emotional than that. She says, ""It seemed like a suicide note to the love of my life and to my former life, because everything in my life has changed so much. And it went from being this ambiguous interpretation - this idea we had - to it being so completely relevant to everything I'm going through." Check out the latest music from Ke$ha below.
