She’s been all over the news making headlines with her ex-husband, Hip Hop’s superstar Nas, but now Kelis is actually getting back to what’s most important – making great music.
We already know she’s gearing up for the release of a brand new project that’s long overdue if you ask me, but we also know that’s what happens when you lose focus of your priorities in the music industry. In spite of all that mess, Kelis managed to package together a forward-thinking project for us this summer and now we hear she’s planning to hit the road.
101.1 The Wiz wants to pack up and catch one of these performances so we can see if she’s worth bringing to our city real soon, but here’s what we found out about the summer trek Kelis is preparing for with fellow international artist Robyn.
Dubbed as the “All Hearts” Tour, Kelis will launch the blazing summer trail of live promo appearances for the new album “Flesh Tones” with tour dates beginning next month. Robyn, who’s been hard at work, too, on brand new music will be there to add some flavor from the UK to Kelis’ milkshake. (Good one, huh?)
But it doesn’t end there because also joining the ladies to kick off the shows are UK faves Dan Black and the Far East Movement. The itinerary is subject to change as expected, but for now cities like Los Angeles, Philly and Boston are confirmed. Find out who else is on the tour route by visiting Singersroom.com today. As a reminder, both Kelis and Robyn will be dropping new projects this year with Kelis’ futuristic dance/R&B fusions on “Flesh Tones” hitting stores on Tuesday, July 6th and Robyn’s new album, “Body Talk – Part I,” in stores on Tuesday, June 15th.
