Yesterday (February 18), Kelis debuted her new video for the track “Jerk Ribs” — a song that kind of caught the internet by surprise.
Produced by TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek, this is not like the “Milkshake” that once defined her. Instead this time around she’s combining her love of mid to late ’70s Marvin Gaye with jangly-guitars for something that’s all her own.
The video itself gives a behind the scenes look at Kelis getting styled for a photo shoot. The message being that you see this artist as one thing but all is not necessarily as it seems. Fittingly, the outfits she dons keep up with the Motown diva style of the song, off her upcoming album Food, out April 22.
