Editors’ Notes

Kelis offers a soulful collection of horn-accompanied retro R&B that’s conceptually united by her gastronomic passion. At a glance, the conceit might seem a bit tongue-in-cheek (particularly since her breakthrough came with 2003’s ultra-sassy “Milkshake”), but neither the music nor the inspiration for Food can be taken lightly: as a sideline to her singing career, the vocalist became a Le Cordon Bleu-trained saucier. When she digs in to smoldering downtempo tracks like “Floyd” or “Runnin’”—delivering coy lines like “I know that I don’t look it but I can cook” in her husky alto—Food’s insinuations and double entendres are at once playful and deeply satisfying. The success of the concept is also due in part to TV on the Radio's Dave Sitek, who’s production flourishes nod to Stax icons on heavy-hitting tunes like “Hooch” and “Rumble.”

YAS

"Sleep well my friend, you must be tired" well hunny I can't because you're SLAYING ME WITH THIS ALBUM, YAS!!

Im not full yet.

This is NOT Flesh Tone, pt. 2! This is a sit down, clean the house & do laundry on a hot Sunday afternoon kinda album. And it's perfectly imperfect this way!

A charismatic singer and songwriter who, for several years, was closely associated with the Neptunes, Kelis arrived at the tail-end of the '90s and left an immediate impression with her first solo single, "Caught Out There" — a Top Ten R&B single with a frank and screamed chorus. While her other Top Ten R&B single, 2003's Grammy-nominated "Milkshake," was also something of a novelty hit — and also produced by the Neptunes — Kelis released some of the most...
