Kelis Debuts New Material at BBC 6 Music Festival

  /  03.02.2014


Kelis gave her U.K. fans a taste of her first album in four years at the BBC 6 Music Festival at Victoria Warehouse in Manchester on Saturday.

Beaming in a gold metallic gown, the Harlem diva opened with a cover of Nina Simone’s “Feeling Good” and served up her hits including “Milkshake,” “Trick Me,” and “Acapella.”

For the first time, she also performed material off her upcoming album Food including “Jerk Ribs,” “Rumble,” “Friday Fish Fry,” and “Cobbler,” during which she hit a whistle note that would make Mariah proud.

Her sixth album Food, produced entirely by TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek, arrives April 22 via U.K. indie label Ninja Tune.

Prior to the album’s release, the Le Cordon Bleu chef will appear at South By Southwest in Austin, Texas, where she will serve meals out of her own food truck.

Watch Kelis satisfy her hungry fans with new music.
