Here’s a first look at Kelis‘ hot new Rankin photo shoot from her upcoming “Fleshtones” CD.
Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter Kelis will release her next album through will.i.am Music Group / Interscope Records. Kelis has just given everyone a taste of what’s to come with the David Guetta-produced “Acapella,” which is now available on her website www.iamkelis.com. The new album features production work by some of today’s most influential producers, including will.i.am, David Guetta (Black Eyed Peas), Free School, Boys Noize, Burns and DJ Ammo.
Says Kelis, “I love that I am now a new part of the Interscope family. 2010 is around the corner and I can’t wait to put out new music and spend time with real music fans on tour again.” Adds will.i.am, “Kelis represents the kind of edge that pushes all of us not just musically but stylistically as well. She has always opened new doors for her audience and we’re ready to walk through this next one with her.” Jimmy Iovine, Chairman of Interscope Geffen A&M Records concurs, adding, “Kelis is a true artist and we’re so excited to start this new chapter in her musical life.”
Vibe Magazine that Kelis has the potential to be a huge international success…
"Kelis has always been a best kept secret. The cool people know Kelis. But the majority of people just know ‘Milkshake.’ If Kelis were fashion she would be a girl’s favorite pair of shoes or a coat…high fashion. I would like Kelis to show she’s an international sensation. She can be big. A lot of people think big is being on the radio or that being big is having a show in London, France and sometimes Japan. But that ain’t international…that’s just three countries. The Black Eyed Peas are big; the Black Eyed Peas are international. I think Kelis can be that big. As big as the Peas. Fergie is huge. When Fergie blew up she was bigger than me! I believe Kelis can do the same."
She was the first girl to scream on a track!!!
