For almost 20 years now, Kelis has been an unmistakable presence on popular music. The R&B singer, who first strode into the limelight singing the hook on ODB's party anthem 'Got your Money' and her immensely popular debut single 'Caught Out There' in 1999 has enjoyed an extremely successful career and will exhibit this at a Cardiff show later this year.
Her 2003 album Tasty, boasting the singles 'Milkshake' and 'Trick Me', remains her best selling LP but her ability to mutate and transform continued with the release of 2014's Food on British hip hop label Ninja Tune, a nod to her other calling in life; she is a fully certified chef.
Having made her name with The Neptunes, she's since hooked up with hip-hop big dogs Andre 3000 and Cee-Lo Green, whilst also working with Enrique Eglesias and Bjork, and creating pulsating electronic music with the likes of Calvin Harris, Boys Noize and Diplo - in a career that has seen her journey through genres.
