Kelis

Kelis describes her sixth album as “a kind of unspoken lovefest”, albeit one involving two unlikely partners. On the one hand, there is Kelis Rogers, who first came to prominence singing the hook of Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s 1999 hit Got Your Money; whose debut album Kaleidoscope helped usher in the wave of sharp, thrillingly futuristic r’n’b that dominated the charts in the early Noughties: as exemplified by her global hit, 2003’s Milkshake; whose last album was a pop-dance extravaganza featuring production from will.i.am and David Guetta.

Leikeli47

Arriving cloaked in mystery in the early 2010s, this New York rapper was always seen wearing a signature ski mask and offered almost no information as to her identity or background, choosing instead to focus on her infectious, fun, and sometimes experimentally raucous rhyme and production styles. For the most part, the MC vehemently avoided interviews, but on rare occasion granted them, only to keep her identity and personal information closely guarded.
Early mixtapes like 2012’s LK-47 and 2014’s LK-47, Pt. 2 led to a contract with RCA Records, as well as some high-profile concert spots, such as opening for Skrillex at Madison Square Garden on direct invitation from the dubstep superstar himself. A self-titled album arrived in 2015 and the mysterious MC went on to perform several shows in support of it.
