Lil Star featuring Cee-Lo
Kelis releases her new single 'Lil Star' on February 19th. The track was produced by Cee-Lo (Gnarls Barkley) and also features him on guest vocals.
Kelis's fourth album, 'Kelis Was Here', is a passionate window into her moods, tastes and emotions. Part of it encompasses dealing with lifeÃ¢Â€Â™s darker moments. Her new single, the soulful and pensive 'Lil Star', features Kelis singing about the time when she has self-doubt, giving fans a look at her vulnerable side. Ã¢Â€ÂœI canÃ¢Â€Â™t be confident and bold and obnoxious all the time,Ã¢Â€Â Kelis says. Ã¢Â€ÂœWhat kind of person would I be? IÃ¢Â€Â™m a human being and I have other sides, too. IÃ¢Â€Â™m not always secure and IÃ¢Â€Â™m not always confident. I have moments where I get self-conscious.Ã¢Â€Â
Many artists strive to be innovative. Kelis does it naturally. Whether it was giving early production from the Neptunes extra bite with her sassy vocals, screaming on a scorned lover on her breakthrough Ã¢Â€ÂœCaught Out ThereÃ¢Â€Â single, teasing potential suitors on the sly Ã¢Â€ÂœMilkshakeÃ¢Â€Â or causing heads to turn with her forward-thinking fashion sense, Kelis has always been in her own league, a singer and entertainer that others look to for inspiration.
There's already an Oscars buzz surrounding this movie.
