Kelis Forgot About 'Acapella'
Singer didn’t expect new single to be released…
Speaking to MTV the singer said she didn’t even know the French DJ was making an album until a friend put them in touch.
“A friend of mine sent me some beats, and he was like, ‘Guetta would love for you to write something for his album.’
"I just started writing to a bunch of them, and I just heard this beat, I just had this melody that came to me right away, so I just laid this melody down really quick and just forgot about it and kept moving and doing stuff.”
Luckily, not everyone is quite as scatterbrained as Kelis and the single is the first track to be taken from her upcoming album Flesh Tone.
The Milkshake singer said, “It's exciting to see that people feel what you feel. That's always encouraging. But I had no idea that that would happen that quickly like that. I just knew that the song felt really real for me.”
