Okay, I’m not going to lie, I LOVED “Milkshake” when it came out a while ago. But then again, who didn’t? Then “Bossy” was around a few years ago, but Kelis hasn’t really been someone I ever really cared about…
After seeing her video for “Acapella,” I immediately became hooked not only to the video, but the song as well. The video, which has tribal and ethnic elements throughout, looks like a 4 minute oil painting in motion. Matched with this very etherial dance hit, and you’ve got a recipe that I’m ready to eat up!
In my opinion, this song and video is the closest thing to Planet Gaga that any artist has attempted. Let’s face it, we’ve all been on Planet Gaga for the last couple of years, and frankly, she makes every other pop/dance artist look like karaoke singers. When I say Kelis is the closest thing, I mean artistically and musically, not necessarily by copying or something like that.
After thinking all of this, I thought I’d check out the producer of the song and what label she’s on. Turns out David Guetta worked on this song with her. Oh and what label is she on? INTERSCOPE! Interscope has been KILLING it the last couple of years.
Anyway check out the awesome song and video for “Acapella”
