Sneak Peek: Kelis – ‘Acapella’

Kelis

Kelis is the last woman standing in the video for “Acapella” co-directed by Rankin and Chris Cottam. The fashion maven forgoes her chic wardrobe for a more tribal look.

“It has a really strong, universal, tribal vibe to it,” she told Rap-Up.com of the clip for the first single from her Flesh Tone album. “It’s not fashion-oriented at all. Actually, it’s the complete opposite.”

The full video debuts Monday. Watch a teaser below.

    omggggggg im hyperventilating! this squashes every music video I have seen in a LONG time, visually. Absolutely gorgeous! I’m so proud of Kelis & I realy hope this is a crossover global hit for her like Milkshake but BIGGER. She deserves all the success in the world because she remains humble and sweet! Team Kelis baby u mad?

    yeah she’s a trendsetter for fashion and everything but when it comes about the most important thing, MUSIC, she’s a follower… come on this is produced by Guetta! she’s never done house music before and now that he produced hits for BEP and Akon she works with him… that’s what I call a follower!

    @pepito You should do your research and check her discography. She has been doing dance and electro music for years — ie. Bjork, Timo Maas, Crookers…and the list goes on. And not to mention, Acapella was recorded two years ago in her garage when she was in between labels, before he became popular in the mainstream. MTV reported yesterday that they have been friends for many years, where she knew him as a DJ first in France.

  15. Um....

    I don’t see what’s so original about this. It looks to simplistic and i know what she said. But don’t bore me to death. So far i’m disappointed.

    I wonder whose stuff is going to sound better. Kelis’s David Guetta stuff or Kelly Rowland’s Guetta produced stuff???? Either way its a new era in music. And I’m glad we aren’t excited about seeing the same three faces anymore.
