Kelis Gives Chart Rigger A Shout Out (Sort Of), Introduces New Song 'Acapella'

Kelis Was Here was an underrated album with several hit-worthy tracks—plus I just love how this broad just does her own thing and doesn't give a flying leap. And so, who cares if she gets tongue-tied over Chart Rigger, and calls it "Chart Trigger"? (It's certainly been referred to as worse things.)

And here's new jam "Acapella," which was posted on Kelis' official site today:

On her site, Kelis wrote, "My new album is pretty much done. I signed a new deal and am madly in love with life and ready to share something with you."

    Ha! At least she didn't call you Perez. Her hair is whack. Love the sinner, not the sin.

    Great song! I just bought her greatest hits a couple weeks back--had a hankering for "Milkshake" (don't ask)--remembered her great Richard X song, "Finest Dreams". This sounds like it could put her back on the map. Can't wait for the album!

    CountP, "Finest Dreams" (and that whole Richard X album) soundtracked my Xmas 2004!

    XO, the hair is cray!

    Those are six amazing seconds. Seriously! That horns/crown contraption, the over-accessorizing, the nose ring (or is that glistening snot? I truly can't tell)... all sorts of amazing. LOVE HER.

    "Get Along with You" and "Trick Me" are perfect.

    Great track, and classic shout out. You should change the blog for one day to "Trigger" when her CD comes out.

    As I've told you before, I thought you were called Char Trigger for a good few weeks when I discovered your site. So Kelis is in good company :P PS my hair is as insane as hers this week. I desperately need a cut!!

    I think I'm one of the eight bloggers in the world who only really know her through "Milkshake". Sad, I know. But this track is darn good. Except, doesn't "Acapella" mean no backing music?

    A classy new high for Chart Rigger!
