Kesha & Reneé Rapp Update ‘Tik Tok’ Diddy Lyric in Surprise Coachella Duet

Kesha overhauled the opening lyric of her 2009 breakthrough hit, “Tik Tok,” when she joined Reneé Rapp on stage at Coachella on Sunday (April 14). The song famously name-drops Diddy, who faces sexual assault and abuse allegations and whose homes were recently raided in connection with a federal sex-trafficking investigation.

In the original recording of “Tik Tok,” off of Kesha’s Animals album, she sings: “Wake up in the mornin’ feelin’ like P. Diddy/ Grab my glasses, I’m out the door, I’m gonna hit this city.”

During Rapp’s set at the Indio, California, festival Sunday, Kesha was warmly introduced as a special guest (and also as “the hottest person on the Earth”).

Kesha arrived on stage and launched into a 2024 version of “Tik Tok,” singing: “Wake up in the mornin’ like, ‘F— P. Diddy.’” Rapp yelled this out with Kesha, with both pop stars giving the middle finger at the same time.

And just in case anyone thought they misheard that lyric, Kesha made it loud and clear with a tweet following her surprise appearance at the fest.

“WAKE UP IN THE MORNING LIKE F— P DIDDY,” Kesha wrote on X (formerly Twitter) Sunday night.

Rapp and Kesha have previously shared the stage, performing the latter’s “Your Love Is My Drug” in Brooklyn in November. “Getting to sing with one of your idols, who is unapologetically perfect, is so insane,” gushed Rapp, who at the time said Kesha was one of the artists “who shaped who I was as a kid, and made me want to be sexy, and funny, and exciting, and outrageous, and loud and, most of all, really f—ing sexy.”

“Tik Tok” was first released in 2009 and topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart in early 2010, spending nine weeks at No. 1.
