Kelis Returns With New Song “Midnight Snacks”
- American singer-songwriter Kelis is back with a new song “Midnight Snacks”.
It is her first new solo music since she released her 2014 album “Food” in seven years.
The track was written by Kelis, Adrian Francis, Mark Waxkirsh, Curtis James and Sam Tsang. Produced by The FaNaTiX.
“I heard the beat, thought it was dope, and the first thing that came to mind was ‘Midnight Snacks.’ [Producers] The FaNaTix were like, what are you talking about? And I was like, it makes you feel like a midnight snack! And that was it,” Kelis said of the song in a statement. “It’s funny to me, but I like the fact that you can take sex and food, and you can put these two things together, and they’re totally interchangeable. I love that.”
The accompanying music video was directed by Adrienne Raquel.
Kelis shared on social media, “Someone recently said to me, I'm always talking about food in my music. I thought about it, and you know what... I do! It isn't intentional, but it's something everyone can relate to. It's very human, it's sensual, it's something that you crave. And it's sexy!”
She continued, “I really wanted to work with a Black woman on this project, so it was great to work with the talented @adrienneraquel, who directed the video. Appreciate you bringing my creative vision to life!!”
