First Listen: Neon Hitch - "Fuck U Betta" (Uncensored)

Since the exhilarating Neon Hitch unleashed her latest in a series of Things That Land Ridiculously Near Perfection, "F*ck U Betta," I've been holding out for a version without the asterisk. It's a good song, produced by partner in crime Benny Blanco* (the guy who mixed Maroon 5, dubstep and Christina Aguilera on "Moves Like Jagger," made Britney's "(Drop Dead) Beautiful" awesome enough to withstand Sabi's "steamin' like a pot full of vegetables" calamity, and produced Gym Class Heroes' "Ass Back Home," which features Hitch) and though the whole "trading up" theme has been used by everyone from the Pussycat Dolls to the Dixie Chicks, Hitch once again stands out by taking the concept to its extreme. But come on...this is a woman whose last official single was framed on a bestiality metaphor - I'm pretty sure Neon Hitch doesn't "f*ck."

Fortunately, I was right.

*Ahhhhhh* MUCH better. Now if you'll excuse me, I need to take a shower and visit my local confessional.

*Fun Ke$ha-related Fact: Ever feel like "Blah Blah Blah" sort of stood out a bit on Ke$ha's debut album, Animal? That's probably because the song was written by Ke$ha, Neon Hitch, and Benny Blanco - and Blanco has a solo producer credit. On a Dr. Luke album. That's f*cking badass.
