Video: Kelis – ‘Jerk Ribs’

Kelis

Kelis is serving up some fierce fashion in the video for “Jerk Ribs,” the first single off her upcoming album Food. In the colorful clip, the fashionista takes us behind the scenes of her album packaging shoot. She gets glammed up and turns the streets of Mexico into a catwalk as Mister Cartoon photographs her. She also performs at a garden party, where a giraffe roams the property.

“This song is the cornerstone of my album,” Kelis told TIME. “So I wanted the video to look like my life, my love—back to the beginning.”

She is putting the finishing touches on her sixth album Food, due April 22. The 13 tracks were produced entirely by TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek.

The Le Cordon Bleu-trained chef also stars in her own Cooking Channel special, “Saucy and Sweet,” premiering February 26 at 8:30 p.m.

Feast your eyes on Kelis’ latest creation.

    Watching this has got me so excited for what she has in store for us with her new music. I seriously love all of her albums and I couldn’t be more excited for “Food.” She is such a forward-thinking artist and NEVER follows other trends. Roll on April!

    shit hasnt been the same since the Neptunes. Her voice is delicate she needs someone who can handle that.

    I love Solange, but anyone saying Kelis is trying to be like her is a complete idiot. Please go listen to Kelis’ first album (or even “Kelis Was Here”). That was the blueprint for half of these broads.

    As for the vid and song. I’m not too crazy about either. I want Kelis back in the studio the Neptunes or Raphael Saadiq.
