Throughout Kelis’ tumultuous career, she has never produced a video quite like this. “Jerk Ribs” is the first video off her upcoming new album Food and was produced by TV On The Radio’s, genius Dave Sitek. Throughout the video, Kelis keeps it real as she travels around the rugged streets of Mexico playing dress-up and taking glamorous pictures with a photo crew. “Jerk Ribs” is a perfect combination of Kelis’ soulful vocals over a big band jazzy sound that has us itching for springtime.
Food is out April 22 on Ninja Tune.
