Album Review

Four of Kelis' five singles that hit Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart are included on The Hits, as well as three guest spots (one of which, Ol' Dirty Bastard's "Got Your Money," charted), leaving plenty of room for tracks that weren't exactly hits. Title semantics aside, the disc amounts to a satisfactory, but not optimal, selection of highlights from Kelis' three U.S.-released albums: 1999's Kaleidoscope, 2003's Tasty, and 2006's Kelis Was Here. (2001's Wanderland, not released in the States, is technically represented through "Young, Fresh N' New," but the song also appeared on Tasty.) Plenty of great material is left off the hourlong sequence, from Tasty's "Rolling Through the Hood" and "Glow" to Kelis Was Here's "Blindfold Me" and "Trilogy," and incorporating "Popular Thug" and/or "Little Suzie" from the Wanderland era would have been a good touch. Even so, casual listeners who have wondered whether or not Kelis has had depth beyond a hot single off each album — "Caught Out There," "Milkshake," "Bossy" — will get the answer here, and that answer is yes.

nice pacakge

I don't care if there is no new material on here because I don't have all her album so its worth it. This is all the good stuff from Kelis. Love it! Buy it!


Great collection, decent write up, however "Young, Fresh n New" Does not appear on Tasty. That would be "Flashback".

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 creative R&B albums of the late '90s and...
