It's Kelis' "4th Of July (Fireworks)" Video

Jesus! So basically everyone under the sun decided that this past week was the one to unload their new music videos? Lady Gaga, Adam Lambert, Katy Perry—and now Kelis, with "4th Of July (Fireworks)"!

Here in the States, Kelis' Flesh Tone doesn't come out till July 6, but it was added to iTunes for pre-order yesterday and includes the bonus track "Carefree American." Hmmm. Kelis comes out the same day as Kylie (cue eyebrow arch).

Her views on fur-wearing aside, I'm still digging Kelis' album a good month-and-a-half after first hearing it. The video, with all its four elements symbolism, is pretty amazing, too. Again, please take notes on how to do a visual for a summer song, Gaga.

    I have fallen in love love love with this song. That little keyboard riff takes me to a higher place. DJ Ammo is amazing..I had no idea he worked on "Your Love Is My Drug" also. This and "Brave" are the best songs on the record.

    Justin, I have to admit, I really love "Intro"! Maybe because it sets the tone for the album so dramatically and perfectly!

    Paul, it's the least I can do. Still indebted to you for introducing me to The Feeling!

    It can't work as a matter of fact, that is what I consider.
