10 Tracks You Have To Hear This Week (24/04/10)

1. BoB feat. Hayley Williams – ‘Airplanes’ Rather than donning a do-rag and swaggering about telling anyone who’ll listen that she’s burnt her Fueled By Ramen back catalogue and is now listening to nothing but Public Enemy and Paris,...

Kelis : Millionaire

Kelis : Millionaire

If I were Andre 3000 – and who’s to say that, in some distant universe, I’m not? – I’d be a little fucked off to see this single billed as Kelis when, in fact, it’s all about me you absolute bastards! I sing on it, I rap on it, I wrote...

Kelis : Tasty

Kelis : Tasty

Beyonce Knowles bestrode 2003 like some great hot-panted colossus. But, as an embodiment of how modern R&B fuses the worlds of pop and cutting-edge cool she is an unsatisfying icon. Destiny’s Child has enthusiasm, booty and bounce, but she is,...

Kelis : Wanderland

Kelis : Wanderland

Kaleidoscope

Kaleidoscope

Baby remember her name. You might have heard 20-year-old, Harlem-bred Kelis on Ol ' Dirty Bastard' s anthem to pimping, 'Got Your Money' , or Puffy 's homage to himself, 'PE 2000' . If not, you'll have heard her rock-hard debut single...

Kelis : Caught out there

Kelis : Caught out there

"I hate you so much right now" , screams Kelis. Men, men, men; we're untrustworthy, lying scoundrels at heart, and as this Harlem-based hip-hop soulster rightly points out, we're always at our worst shortly after we've gone through the old...
