"Acapella" Video Review

"Acapella" is a song performed by alternative American R&B artist Kelis, taken from her fifth studio album "Flesh Tone". The song is a departure from her past singles in that it is a dance/electronica track rather than hip hop. Kelis is working through some real emotional pain, sounding much more mature than she did in her chart topper "Milkshake", from way back in 2003. Her lost love and emotional pain is perfectly described in a metaphor, as she sings, ìBefore you my whole life was acapella, now a symphony is the only song to sing.î

The song's co-writer Makeba Riddick revealed that the song had previously been called "Majestic". Whilst Kelis revealed she wrote the song with love and life in my mind; you can see for yourself by reading the lyrics.

The music video for the song was filmed in the first week of March 2010 by a British production team consisting of portrait and fashion photographer John "Rankin" Waddell and musical director Chris Cottam.

"It has a really strong, universal, tribal vibe to it. When I say that, I mean it's no particular tribe; it's a little bit of everything," she told Rap-Up. "It's like if the world were to end and there was one woman standing, what would it be like?"

"It's not fashion-oriented at all. Actually, it's the complete opposite," she continued her explanation. "I think everything is over-fashioned up that it just becomes uninteresting, and when every artist has access to every designer and vice versa, it's no longer exciting or fun."
