Kelis released a music video for her new single "Midnight Snacks" - her first single since 2014.
The music video was directed by Adrienne Raquel (Travis Scott, Rihanna, Selena Gomez). The video premiered on Oct. 7 on BET Soul, BET Her and the Times Square Viacom billboard.
Somebody recently told Kelis that she always sings about food. "I was like, do I?" she laughed.
"I mean, obviously I do. It isn't intentional, but the idea is just that food is a very carnal thing. Everyone can relate to it. It's very human, it's sensual, it's something that you crave. And it's sexy."
According to Radio Facts,"Midnight Snacks" was recorded in a studio on a boat in London and produce by The FaNaTix (Nicki Minaj, Popcaan, Vybz Kartel).
Kelis said she was inspired to write "Midnight Snacks" after hearing the beat.
"I heard the beat, thought it was dope, and the first thing that came to mind was 'Midnight Snacks,'" said Kelis.
"The FaNaTix were like, what are you talking about? And I was like, it makes you feel like a midnight snack! And that was it," says Kelis, who added she may keep singing about food.
"It's funny to me, but I like the fact that you can take sex and food, and you can put these two things together, and they're totally interchangeable. I love that."
Kelis' husband, Mike Mora, 36, recently revealed his yearlong battle with stomach cancer.
Kelis has not commented on her husband's cancer diagnosis.
