Kelela – LMK

I’ll come clean, up until now I had missed the boat on Kelela. But that changes from here on out with the release of “LMK,” her upcoming debut album Take Me Apart’s steamy-as-fuck lead single.

Over an imposing bassline and percolating percussive layers, the R&B songstress takes ownership of the one-night stand machismo with her own brand of vocal authority. She commands a level of seductive respect through lyrics like: ‘You don’t read between the lines / ‘Bout to leak, and you read my mind / Did you think you’re my ride home, baby? / ‘Cause my girls are parked behind.’

It’s that empowering energy that reverberates throughout, enveloping the cut with a sense of aural confidence. Get yourself familiar with a stream below, look for Take Me Apart Oct. 6th via Warp Records, and spread some social love too:
