"C'Mon" is a song by Ke$ha. It serves as the third track & second single on Ke$ha's sophomore album Warrior. The song was originally released as a promotional single on November 16, 2012. The song was re-released as the official second single on January 7, 2013.
"C'Mon" was written by Kesha, Dr. Luke, Max Martin, Bonnie McKee, Benny Blanco, Melin Shikder, and Cirkut, while production was helmed by Dr. Luke, Martin, Cirkut, and Blanco. Registered on the Broadcast Music Incorporated database on 13 October 2012, under the legal title "C Mon", the song was released as the second single from Kesha's second studio album, Warrior. "C'Mon" is a technopop and pop rap record thematically similar to Kesha's previous single, "Die Young"; Billboard called the song "a YOLO dance jam about taking hookups from the dance floor to the bedroom", while MTV called the track a "...case for a sassy one-night stand."

The video was filmed on December 22, 2012. It was released on January 11, 2013 on Ke$ha's YouTube. It was produced by Jonathan Craven.
The video opens with Kesha working as waitress at a waffle house named the "Awful House". She is scolded by her boss, Ri¢hard, for being late. Wearing pink ribbons, a pink-checkered shirt, and "daisy duke" shorts, Kesha quits her job after being harassed by Ri¢chard and yelled at by a rude customer and jumps into a van called the "Dream Machine" driven by someone in a cat costume. Switching costumes into what MTV considered something more in-tune with Kesha's style, the rapper terrorizes a convenience store with a gang of people dressed in animal costumes. The following scenes depict Kesha on a motorcycle and taking a bath. The final scene shows Kesha and the animals bursting into the waffle house and partying. At the end, the van disappears.
