Ever since I heard the first cut, the Kylie Minogue collaboration “Right Here, Right Now” which I love, I’ve been chomping at the bits to hear more from Giorgio Moroder’s highly-anticipated album. With only two months to go before Déjà Vu drops on June 12, we finally get a new song. It’s none other than the title track featuring Sia.
As one would expect, “Déjà Vu” is a disco-tinged masterpiece from the legendary 74-year-old producer. Hopefully, this gets an accompanying music video. If only to see what kind of wig or apparatus the Aussie singer uses to block her face. Too bad, Moroder only previewed a minute. I can’t wait to hear the entire thing.
I’m also curious to hear Britney Spears’ cover of the Suzanne Vega classic “Tom’s Diner.” Quite an interesting choice. Kelis, Matthew Koma, Charli XCX, Mikky Ekko, Foxes and more have contributed to the album as well. Check out the official tracklist below along with previewing the Sia-assisted song.
Skream, an English dubstep record producer has just released his new single called “Copy Cat” featuring the artist whose “milkshake brings all the boys to the yard,” Kelis. The song premiered on Skream’s radio show Skream – Stella Session last month but the final edit of the song just came out this week. I love it!
I’m not sure if the song is an actual message to someone who’s been copying either Skream or Kelis, but it’s a pretty “catty” song, calling out a “copy cat” with some In the chorus, Kelis gets her own claws out in a passive agressive way, singing: “Aww, come here copy cat / You my puppet / You know i love it / Aww, come here copy cat / You can sit on my lap / Look at how I work baby girl / You could do it, you could do it / You could do it, I did it… already.”
It’s everything I love about Kelis’ music and if you’re a Kelis fan, I think you’ll enjoy it. Listen to the new track below.
I AM A MUSIC VIDEO ADDICT. I’m the first one to view it, first one to post it, and what’s better than seeing visuals to a song that make you love the song even more than you thought was possible. It was a big year for highly visual music videos and I have no lack of material to add to this list. This is MY list and if you disagree then comment below and tell me what your favourites were this year.
Two Words: Mercedes Maybach
If you’re like me, you’ve probably been wonder where Kelis has been the last little while. She had a triumphant return to music with her album Flesh Tone leaving her rap and R&B roots behind and opting to release some dance music that had all of our feet moving. Now, a new dance track featuring the help of will.i.am has hit the web and it’s pretty great.
The track is allegedly called Anything Like You according to the uploader. It’s unsure whether or not the track was supposed to make an appearance on Flesh Tone or if it’s expected to be a demo for an upcoming 2012 release. In September of this year, Kelis said in an interview that she would have a new album out early next year. I am highly anticipating that. Until then, check out this newly leaked track.
Oh man do I have a little bit of a $h!t mix for you. There is really no rhyme or reason to this li’l group of ditties today, but they’re all representing the sun coming out, cruising in a car with the window open on the way to the beach, and coming home sunburned and lazy. Wait, did I just describe the last couple weeks of my life? I THINK SO! Got a wicked British pop star, an American hip-hop chica, and an Australian group I have fond mem’z of.
Do you know Natalia. Wait. What? You don’t. YOU SHOULD! Kills’ debut album Perfectionist is a dirty pop dream, you know, the sweaty kind where you wake up breathing hard. And she WILL blow up in North America soon enough, so climb on the Kills train. She’s opened for Kelis, and for Robyn in their UK tours, and is opening for Ke$ha on her UK leg. She’s sexy and trashy as hell and her music is unbubbled British pop to the core. Although some of her other singles which you should youtube immedatement are a little more catchy, the combo of this video and song together gets my goat. Fact: I am a zombie movie fanatic. This video makes you feel like you’re watching something pirated you may get arrested for watching, and the slick down beats keep me wantin’ more Natalia.
A couple weeks ago, we got a little snippet of the new “Bounce” track from Calvin Harris featuring Kelis. Now, the full track has been released for our listening pleasure!
The two artists have been pretty consistent over the past few years in delivering on some of the hottest summer dance tracks, and this one is no exception. That said, although I like the track, it’s not a song I’d keep playing on repeat (like some of their past ones). I tend to wear out songs that I really like that way when they first come out.
In one of the verses in Bounce, Kelis says, “We bounce to this track, and I don’t care what anybody thinks about that.” They’ve already filmed the music video so we should expect that real soon. Check out the song below and let me know what you think!
Her milkshake always brings us boys to the yard! “Bossy” Kelis made a big comeback with her Flesh Tone album last year, with hits like “4th Of July (Fireworks),” “Scream,” and “Acapella” as part of the soundtrack to our summer.
Lately, she’s been working with her long time collaborator, 27 year old Calvin Harris on a new track for his upcoming untitled summer album. In March, he released a little taste of things to come with an instrumental dance track called “Awooga“. Now, he’s about to release a new track and music video featuring Kelis called “Bounce“. The snippet of the track gives me the feeling that this track is going to catch us all by storm, as both of there music tends to do. They recently filmed the music video for “Bounce” in Las Vegas. Can’t wait to check it out! The header picture is from the set of the shoot in Sin City.
Check out the two snippets from the “Bounce”, as well as the full version of his “Awooga” track released in March below.
Kelis is back with another video for “Brave“- this one being the fourth single off her latest album, Flesh Tone. This video is quite different to what she did with her previous videos from this album, which include “Acapella”, “Scream”, and “4th of July (Fireworks)”. Instead of all the special effects, colors, and futuristic feel, she went simple. Very, very simple.
All of the videos on this album, including this one, are a collaboration with British photographer John Waddell. He’s a smart guy and definitely knows how to make her look good (not that she doesn’t without him – but she’s just flawless in her vids!) Off hand, I can’t think of another video I’ve seen where it’s so focused on the artist the entire time – without break. The style certainly matches the personal lyrics that come from Kelis on this track: “Had a baby, he’s amazing / He saved me and this time, it’s just us.” It’s a great song, part of a great album. Now, watch the video!
