Kelis

Kelis is bound to have everyone talking with “Copycat,” her collaboration with British dubstep producer Skream. With a heavy hand of sarcasm, the dance diva addresses the similarities between her and her fellow females.

“I’m such a fan of that dress that’s why I bought it—five years ago/ I’m such a fan of your hair, that’s why I cut it,” she sings over the pulsing beat. “Come here copycat, you my puppet/ You know I love it.”

Never one to bite her tongue, Kelis declares her originality. “You could do it, I did it already.”

Calvin Harris and Kelis

Scottish DJ Calvin Harris nabs a coveted guest appearance from Kelis on his new single “Bounce.” With a bloopy 8-bit instrumental, the club record builds from a minimalistic groove into a full-blown anthem, with the “Bossy” diva controlling the dance floor. “I can love again tonight/ We bounce to this track/ And I don’t care what anybody thinks about that/ Hands to the sky and throw your hair back,” she commands over the electro harmony, for which a video was recently shot in Las Vegas.

Christina Milian

Prince painted Los Angeles purple on Thursday night as part of his Welcome 2 America Live “21 Nite Stand” concert residency at The Forum. The music icon’s show drew famous faces including Christina Milian and Kelis, who walked the purple carpet.

“Prince is a good friend of mine. He’s really cool,” the “Dip It Low” singer previously told Rap-Up. “He’s a genius for everything that he does, but he’s an inspiration for me. I’ve had a lot of great intelligent conversations with him about the music business as well as about religion and just a lot of different things. He’s inspired me in a lot of ways and it’s good to know that somebody like him is around that I can go to for advice.”

Milian was invited onstage to dance with her mentor, who offered concertgoers $25 tickets. “Yeah… I only just got off the stage from dancing with Prince.. Awe he’s the best,” she gushed.
