Kelis dropped some new visuals for her sneak release of “Jerk Ribs”, compiling behind-the-scenes footage and stills into one ill-defined hodgepodge of a video. The visuals attempt to expound on the now soul-review focused Kelis, draped in 60’s era garb, looking more Marvelettes than Neptunes. While the Dave Sitek produced throwback is more than on-point with its big horns and walking bass, the visual lacks continuity and a unifying theme, making you wonder why they even bothered.
On the brighter and heartier side of things, the former first lady of StarTrak has a cooking show in the works and it seems promising. Focusing on the raspy wonder’s culinary exploits, the show –entitled “Saucy And Sweet”– will air on the Cooking Channel as of February 26th. We’ll have more on Kelis as things unfold, but in the meantime catch the new visuals for “Jerk Ribs”–off her upcoming Food LP– and the trailer for her new show below.
