Kelis has returned with a new single, ‘Midnight Snacks’, her first in seven years. Produced by the Fanatix, the track arrives with an accompanying music video directed by Adrienne Raquel. Check it out below.
‘Midnight Snacks’ continues Kelis’ long-running food theme (‘Milkshake’, ‘Jerk Ribs’, ‘Breakfast’, ‘Milkshake’), which the singer acknowledged in her statement about the song. “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,” she said. “It isn’t intentional, but the idea is just that food is a very carnal thing. Everyone can relate to it. It’s very human, it’s sensual, it’s something that you crave. And it’s sexy.”
Kelis’ last full-length album was 2014’s Food.
