Kelis Out of Fashion in ‘Acapella’ Video


Kelis is known for setting trends, but the fashionista won’t be flaunting any avant-garde threads in her new music video.

The singer shot the video for her David Guetta-produced single “Acapella” with directors Rankin and Chris Cottam in Los Angeles last month. “It has a really strong, universal, tribal vibe to it. When I say that, I mean it’s no particular tribe; it’s a little bit of everything,” she tells “It’s like if the world were to end and there was one woman standing, what would it be like?”

The visuals for her No. 1 dance record will be a departure from her previous fashion-forward clips. “It’s not fashion-oriented at all. Actually, it’s the complete opposite,” she reveals.

Kelis wanted to go in a different direction after seeing an abundance of fashion in today’s music videos. “I think everything is over-fashioned up that it just becomes uninteresting, and when every artist has access to every designer and vice versa, it’s no longer exciting or fun.”

Flesh Tone, Kelis’ fifth studio album, will arrive overseas on May 17 and is slated to hit U.S. shores in June, while the video for “Acapella” premieres Monday, March 29.

    I Love Her. Always Different. I Was Amazed When I Heard People Say( Younger Generations) Why Is She Trying To Be Like Lady Gaga Beyonce Rihanna… Kids Do Your Research. While She Didnt Create The Crazy Sounds (60′s – 80′s) At The Time She Had The Crazy Sound & Style All To Herself! I Love This Woman.. Keep Being Kelis..

    I love this woman omg. I can not wait to see how iconic the video is. Most videos today are fashioned up, see this is why I stan for her. She always wants to go the complete opposite of what other singers are doing. I just love her creative aspect and her music is such a gem. I hope people stop sleeping and realize how talented this woman is. I will finally have my favorite artist album in my hands come May and Im so amped. Bring on Monday!
