Who's into her? She's a highly underrated artist in my opinion. She's a total chameleon, and she was doing the avant-garde thing with her hair, wardrobe and make-up even before Lady Gaga hit the scene. Her biggest hit was "Milkshake", but she's got lot of good songs. She's bigger in Europe than she is here in the States.

Her first album was great. It was produced by the Neptunes and begat the singles "Caught Out There" and the moody "Get Along With You".

I never could get into her music, and her last album was just terrible.

Get Along With You

by Anonymousreply 307/10/2013

She released a new song a couple of months ago that was called "Call On Me", but the title was abruptly changed to "Jerk Ribs". Under either name it's still a funky, catchy track. I think it will be included on her upcoming album.

R4 That song sucks.

Her music smells worse than crayons.

R5, you have no soul.

OP YAAAAAS hunty, so glad you made a thread about her. LOVE this woman. She would have been more famous, but she got screwed by her label after "Milkshake" became a hit. The label folded and the rest of her singles on that album weren't promoted properly in the US.

It's a shame, R9, because that album had lots of potential.

She started out grungy with a gigantic multi-colored afro, but by the time 2006's "Kelis Was Here" dropped, she had changed up her style with a more sophisticated look. The first single from the album, "Bossy", was probably her biggest hit since "Milkshake". Another standout track from that album was "Goodbyes".

Kelis is a goddess. I hope she can get at least 1 more big mainstream hit again. What she should do is start producing and guesting on other people's records, like what Pharrell is doing. Look what a year he is having again after first making it big about 10 years ago!

I like the remix of Spaceship, the Benny Benassi track, features her almost exclusively. Her voice is amazing.

Her last album, the Euro-trance "Flesh Tone" was spectacular!

What is Pharrell doing nowadays that's so great? I haven't heard about him in years.

I love the huskiness of her voice.

Kelis will remain a huge unsung talent. Im sorry that her music career stalled because of the shitty music industry. She's only 33, she might not ever get a pop hit but she still has potential for other success in music.

She had one with Milkshake, R16.

by Anonymousreply 1707/11/2013

sorry r17, I meant another pop hit

by Anonymousreply 1807/12/2013

R14 gurl yes you have. Pharrell is co-writer, producer to and featured on 2 of the year's biggest hits, "Blurred Lines" by Robin Thicke and "Get Lucky" by Daft Punk. Pharrell is also on the newest single from Nelly "Get Like Me". Pharrell is back and making a LOT of paper this year.

I like Esthero better, but her last album was meh.

by Anonymousreply 2007/12/2013

Never heard of her, R20

by Anonymousreply 2107/12/2013

LOVE HER. Dave Sitek from TV on the Radio is producing her new album - I think I have unrealistically high expectations for it but Jerk Ribs is pretty damn good.

by Anonymousreply 2207/12/2013

It sure is good, R22.

I hope her next album does well. She's great.

I like her song "Blindfold Me".

Kelis sings lead on the Timo Maas track, "Help Me." Killer track.

by Anonymousreply 2607/14/2013

Going to listen to it now, R26.

by Anonymousreply 2707/15/2013

Esthero used to co-sing/back up vocals for Black Eyed Peas, CeeLo, etc. (I heard she was first pick for BEP when they were looking for a female member). I've also heard she was difficult to work with.

Here's one of her songs:

Love Jerk Ribs. Great feel.

She is a risk taker - not everything works but she's willing to take chances so good on her.

Also love Acapella.

by Anonymousreply 2907/16/2013

I love her, she is a very cool lady and has a great voice. Fleshtone is almost brilliant.

Official "Jerk Ribs" video!

another new song/video, "Rumble"

I loved Caught Out there but it grates now. I still love Good Stuff, Trick Me, and Milkshake (especially the mashup of Milkshake and Billie Jean)

by Anonymousreply 3404/26/2014

Sorry, boys, we have decided that she's gone as far as she'll be allowed to go.

by Anonymousreply 3504/26/2014

Love Esthero!

I like Kelis on the Timo Maas track, Help Me.

by Anonymousreply 3604/26/2014

Unlike Beyonce and Rihanna, Kelis is naturally quirky and you can really see her personality come through in her lyrics, beats and music videos. I feel she's a lot less manufactured than those 2. Kelis also has a different tone but it's not grating on the ears like Rihanna's tone. Obviously Beyonce is the best singer out of the 3.

I still stan for Kelis and it's a shame her label screwed her chances of making her HUGE. Sadly she'll be remembered as a 1 hit wonder with a few minor hits.
