Kelis releasing Summer-y/Love-y LP

Artist News Releases


Wepa and again, wepa! Kelis is releasing an LP that “sounds like love and summer balled up into one”, apparently, which is quite a feat. I’ve no idea what date she plans to do that on, but I’m guessing that, given the summer thing and the R&B pop realm’s dislike of irony, it won’t be in the winter.

Kelis, who’s been inactive LP-wise since 2010’s ‘Flesh Tone’, said via Twitter: “You asked when new stuff was coming, I procrastinated but no more. It’s here now, I’m happy. You should be too, embrace it! Wepa!”

And this is the ball of summertime love that is Kelis’s brand new track ‘Jerk Ribs’:
