New Music: Kelis – ‘Jerk Ribs’

Jerk Ribs

Kelis commanded the dance floor with her 2010 album Flesh Tone. But the singer returns to a more retro sound on “Call On Me,” produced by TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek. She spreads some sunshine on the feel-good tune, soaring over funky horns and whistles.

UPDATE: Kelis has officially released the song with the new title “Jerk Ribs” and announced the completion of her next album, due in September on Sitek’s Federal Prism label.

“I’m really excited, my album is done. It sounds like love and summer balled up into one!” she tweeted. “You asked when new stuff was coming, I procrastinated :) but no more. It’s here now, I’m happy. You should be too, embrace it! Wepa!”

    @draya, go listen to her older music then.
    Kelis is an artist that’s not chasing the latest trend or a hit. She just makes music that she wants to.

    @CIAO, No offense, as much talented, underrated, and creative she is. She sorta jumped on the band-wagon when it came to Dance Music.

    @woowow,

    No she didn’t she began recording her Dance album in 2008 when she was pregnant. She’s also first worked with UK electro/dance producers in 2001. Plus her and the neptunes early work had electro influence too.

    Any who, this is a summer jam right here!

    @Trillafood, Well, So did J.Lo. and Both wasn’t really consistant. Plus she recorded music with some mainstream producers.

    She did things before they became popular.
    Always in touch with her gay fanbase
    Hits on pop, r&b and Dance charts
    Always versatile
    New school chick with old school skills
    Love her…
    You either get her, or you don’t!

    This is definitely a Kelis-esque song and I LOVE IT. She is one of my favorite chicks in the game and I don’t think anyone can take her spot. I think I was one of few who really appreciated “Flesh Tone” for what it was. That was an AMAZING album and she did it so effortlessly just like she does this song. Can we get an album this year Kelis, please?
