GRAMMY-nominated singer-songwriter Kelis tops Billboard’s Dance/Club Play Songs chart again, taking “Acapella,” the lead single from her forthcoming album, Flesh Tone, to No. 1 this week. Her hit “Milkshake” topped the same chart in 2003 and sold over 1.2 million digital singles. Flesh Tone, which Billboard singled out as one of 2010’s “Best Bets,” will be released this spring by will.i.am Music Group/Interscope Records.
The single – produced by David Guetta (producer of The Black Eyed Peas hit single “I GOTTA FEELING”) – is available on the iTunes Store, at Kelis’ website (www.iamkelis.com), where fans can stream it first, and at www.masterbeat.com. She recently shot the video for “Acapella” in Los Angeles with the director team of Chris Cottam and Rankin.
She will launch Flesh Tone, her first album in nearly four years, with a promotional tour that kicks off at the Winter Music Conference in Miami, FL in late March. Additional details will be announced shortly. In addition to working with Guetta, Kelis recorded Flesh Tone with several other influential producers, including will.i.am, Free School, Boys Noize, Burnz, DJ Ammo and Benny Benassi.
