"Tonight" is a song by American singer Kesha, which was released as the fourth single from her fourth studio album, High Road, on January 28, 2020.[1]


On October 21, 2019, a trailer for Kesha's High Road album premiered on her YouTube channel. In it, snippets of "Tonight" were featured, along with other songs from the album ("Raising Hell", "My Own Dance", "High Road").[2] Kesha posted a video to her TikTok account, which shows her and co-writer Wrabel lip-syncing and dancing to the track.[3] The song premiered as the fourth single off of High Road on January 28, 2020, 3 days before the album's release.[4]


"Tonight" is a "bass-bumping"[5] electropop composition.[6] It begins as a "gentle", piano-driven pop ballad,[7][8][9] before launching into a hip hop and EDM breakdown with a "low-riding bassline" and a "buzzed beat".[1][7][9][10] Kesha stated that "Tonight" is a "celebratory" song about "fucking up what I have".[5] The song drew comparisons to many different works: its beginning and chorus to Lady Gaga (such as her 2016 album Joanne),[11] while the breakdown to Kesha's pre-Rainbow music (notably, her Animal album).[12]

Live performances[edit]

Kesha performed "Tonight" during the Live with Kelly and Ryan after-Oscars show. During the performance, 6 back-up dancers wearing colorful clothing were present, while the singer wore a jeweled teardrop accessory.[13]
