    There are plenty of songs that I concentrate to which might be dance/pop so I'm going with Ke$sha proper now. I'm being attentive to one of the crucial songs which might be from her most recent album now. A couple songs to appear up are ... Die Young C'mon Blow We R Who We R Take it Off Also The Wanted are first-rate. They sing "Lightening" that's a favourite of mine.
