Kelis and the Neptunes were pretty synonymous for a while. Then there was "Milkshake." There's also that whole thing where she's wildly more popular overseas than here. But through her career, Kelis has just kicked out the jams no matter who she's paired up with, whether Dallas Austin or Raphael Saadiq or any of numerous notable producers. On her latest album, the singer who's gotten club hits out of R&B, soul, house and hip-hop teams up with TV on the Radio's Dave Sitek for an R&B and funk-heavy effort that puts a new spin on some of the things she's done in the past. And her recent shows have been a terrific showcase of her entire career.
Gapers Block's giving a pair of tickets to see Kelis next Monday at Park West. Write to firstname.lastname@example.org with "JERK RIBS" in the subject line for a chance to win. Update: And we have a winner. Enjoy the show, Tracy.
