Video: Kelis – ‘Rumble’


Kelis becomes one with nature in the “Duck Dynasty”-inspired video for “Rumble,” the second video off her upcoming sixth album Food.

Clad in a red leather jacket, camouflage pants, and muck boots, the singer jumps in a lake, literally, and performs the entire song while seated in an upholstered chair. Throughout the three-and-a-half-minute clip, a trumpet player and fishermen row their way into the frame, but Kelis does not flinch.

Produced by Dave Sitek, Food arrives April 22 featuring the single “Jerk Ribs.”

Watch the unconventional clip below.

    Mainstream R&B fans go: WTF?
    No booty shaking? No weave and wind machine? No leaotards and half naked dancers? No vocal acrobatics?
    I love Kelis
    ALways different
    Always one step ahead

    all these chicks (i’m looking at you gaga) are doing the most and kelis is like, i’m just gonna sit in a river and kill the game.

    you can do that though when the music speaks for itself.

    Though I think this video wouldve been hot if she was in a cotoure gown, I still like the video. She let the music speak for itself then it being overshadowed by gimmicks ;)
