Funky. Classy. Mature. Kelis has been a busy woman following the release of her latest album Food on Ninja Tune records. The Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter and professional chef is embarking on her North American/European tour, which she’ll kick off June 2nd at The Fillmore.
Produced by TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek, Food is rich in neo-soul and tasty vibes. Kelis rocks her big hair and foody flair with a full-fledged horn section, back-up singers, and all that jazz.
As grand as her live performances tend to be, little rivals this album’s promotional creativity. In addition to serving up a platter of crisp soul, Kelis has been spotted touring Austin’s SXSE in her food truck, feeding fans her own culinary genius.
Kelis also conjured up some pretty fantastic music videos to showcase her latest singles, “Jerk Ribs” and “Rumble”. In one particularly surreal piece of footage, Kelis belts out “Rumble” while lounging on a fancy chair in the middle of a lake with the backing band drifting by. These videos can be found on her new YouTube channel alongside other promotional gems.
The blend of pop, jazz, and afro-beat is an uplifting and refreshing direction for the seasoned R&B beauty that melts into something honest, original, and sexy. Start your summer off right and snag your tickets now!
