KELIS RELEASES FIRST SOLO SINGLE SINCE 2014 “MIDNIGHT SNACKS”
Written by Randy C on October 8, 2021
Kelis is officially marking her return with the single “Midnight Snacks.” The song is the first release from the Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter and Le Cordon Bleu-trained chef since her 2014 album Soul Food.
“Midnight Snacks” is a throwback to Kelis’ early career, bringing in a stripped-back, slinky sound that was first heard on her Kaleidoscope album.
A video for “Midnight Snacks” was directed by photographer/director Adrienne Raquel (Travis Scott, Rihanna, Selena Gomez); the visual came to life in a futuristic, yet retro dreamscape – a world where Black beauty, fashion, and decadence collide, inspired by the allure of the 1990s and paired with the glamour of the 1970s.
