Music Tuesday: Kelis At The Controls… Feeling The Love

Want to know where Kelis’ love of bodypaint stems from? Or her thoughts on Tina Turner and Sheryl Crowe? If so, head for her video below and prepare yourself for a love-bombing from the singer, who has just released her first album for almost four years, “Flesh Tone”, and is clearly very happy about it.


Described as “a best-kept secret” by the Black-Eyed Peas’ will.i.am -- strange when you think that she has tracks including “Caught Out There”, “Milkshake” and “Trick Me” to her name – Kelis has spent nearly four years out the limelight. Her comeback video, “Acapella”, features one reason for her absence, with one-year-old son, Knight, making an appearance in the final shot, but also underlines a departure from her former R&B sound.


The collection of videos that Kelis has drawn together maybe offers a few clues to this new path, so click below to see her talk through the selections:





So, if you ever wondered what Kelis likes to listen while she is kicking around at home, now you know: Zero 7. At the same time, you also know how to get into her good books: follow in the footsteps of Empire Of The Sun and go to one of her gigs. You also have maybe the inkling of an idea of the passions that drive her -- love being prime among them. Having armed you with this knowledge, here’s hoping that you enjoy Kelis’ curation. And we don’t know about you, but on the strength of this we’re looking forward to getting hold of “Flesh Tone” – it looks like being a fascinating listen.


Have fun,
