I might be a little late with the 4th of July post considering it's the 6th, but today Kelis releases her 5th album, Fleshtone in the U.S.
I actually copped this album when I was in London last month and have been loving it ever since. Kelis was featured in our countdown of the Best Female Singers coming in at #8, and this album proves that she is very deserving of the spot.
Kelis has been ahead of the game since she was a teenager. Her 1999 debut album Kaleidoscope was entirely produced by the Neptunes, as was her sophomore album Wanderland, which was so ahead of it's time the record label was scared to release it in the U.S.
Her new album Fleshtone features production from Boys Noize, David Guetta, and Benny Benassi. This girl is out of her mind! And don't sleep on the Calvin Harris remix. That shit is heavy. - Golden Bloggen
