Harlem bred vocalist Kelis left her parents' home at 16, but continued her education at the famed Fiorello H. La Guardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts.
2 years later with the support of producers The Neptunes, she landed herself a recording deal. In mid 1999, Kelis was singing alongside rap troublemaker Ol' Dirty Bastard on his cut "Got Your Money" and her signature Technicolor spiralled afro & colourful style sparked critics' interests.
Kelis captured feminist desires on her debut album Kaleidoscope, released in December 1999. Two years later she released Wanderland exclusively in Europe, Asia and Latin America. 2003's Tasty followed and yielded the Top Ten Neptunes produced hit "Milkshake."
In 2006, her fourth album, Kelis Was Here, was released and led by the duly assertive "Bossy." Kelis has worked with some of the biggest names in the industry having recorded with Bjork, Outkast, Raphael Saadiq, Moby, Enrique Iglesias and Basement Jaxx to name a few.
