Song of the Day: Kelis - "Acapella"

By December 18, 2009

Follow me on:


Kelis and David Guetta is an odd pairing. As someone who has collaborated with edgy electronic musicians like Timo Maas, Basement Jaxx, Bjork, and the Crookers, it seems odd for Kelis to work with arguably the most commercially successful electronic music producer of 2009. The results however are majestic. David Guetta's aggressive electro beats are counterbalanced by Kelis' lyrics about a new arrival bringing melody into her life. The obvious assumption would be that she is singing about her son but the message could easily be applied to the new presence of electronic dance music beats in pop music. Either way, it is a symphony that I hear..

When I first heard the “Acapella”, I was immediately hooked. What a fantastic beat and yet despite the fact that it’s the radio version and maybe doesn’t belong on the radio, per se—b/c it seems as though it was taylor-made for the club, still, it’s a great song! And when the longer club mixes debut, forget-about-it! The song will then really take off!
