Harlem-bred vocalist Kelis left her parents’ home at 16, but continued her education at the famed Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts. 2 years later with the support of producers The Neptunes, she landed herself a recording deal. In mid-1999, Kelis was singing alongside rap troublemaker Olâ€™ Dirty Bastard on his cut “Got Your Money,” and her signature Technicolor-spiraled afro & colorful style sparked critics’ interests. Kelis captured feminist desires on her debut album Kaleidoscope, released in December 1999. Two years later she released Wanderland exclusively in Europe, Asia and Latin America. 2003’s Tasty followed and yielded the Top Ten hit “Milkshake,” a Neptunes production. In 2006, her fourth album, Kelis Was Here, was released through Jive, led by the duly assertive “Bossy.” Kelis has worked with some of the biggest names in the industry â€“ having recorded with willl.i.am, Bjork, Outkast, Raphael Sadaaq, Moby, Enrique Iglesias and Basement Jaxx to name a few.
Kelis has been busy on the road to promote her current #1 David Guetta produced hit single Acapella, the premiere single off of Flesh Tone and putting the finishing touches on the album with producers such as Burnz, DJ Ammo, Boys Noize, Benny Benassi & Free School to name a few. Flesh Tone is marked for a May 17, 2010 release in the UK and worldwide in Summer 2010 on will.i.am/Inters cope Records.
