New Video: Kelis Cooks Up Some “Jerk Ribs”
Kelis is still bringing the boys to the yard, this time for ‘ribs’ instead of a ‘milkshake’, and with several years of training as a chef at the esteemed Le Cordon Bleu, I’m sure those ribs are quite tasty (especially if they’re marinated in her new line of sauces “Feast”). Her latest single, “Jerk Ribs”, off of her upcoming album “Food” (scheduled for an April 22nd release) is a mid-tempo track, laced with Caribbean infused undertones, and heavy brass moments. The visuals for the head-bopping tune premiered today and in true Kelis fashion, it’s original and fun. Shot mostly in black in white, the video is really an ode to the everyday life of the ‘bossy’ lady. In a statement with Time magazine she said, “This song is the cornerstone of my album, so I wanted the video to look like my life, my love — back to the beginning.”
Check out the new visuals and be sure to pick up Kelis’ 6th studio album, “Food” when it hits stores April 22nd!
