Top Of The Year: OKP’s 14 Artists To Watch In 2014

Kelela Okayplayer's Top Songs of 2013

2. Kelela.
In a word, duh. Kelela made our Best Songs of 2013 with “Enemy” and her mixtape made our Best Mixtapes of 2013 just for living. Her Kingdom collabo “Bank Head” made Okayfuture’s year and her digital torch song “Go All Night” made Solange Knowles‘ Saint Heron compilation, putting her officially at the cool kids’ table, if there was any doubt. There shouldn’t be; Kelela has the voice, the ferocity, the unique timeshifting ability to recall 90s r&b at its best on the most futuristic of future soul freakouts, and clearly the team around her to own 2014, should she so choose.
