Harlem-bred vocalist Kelis left her parents’ home at 16, but continued her education at the famed Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts. 2 years later with the support of producers The Neptunes, she landed herself a recording deal. In mid-1999, Kelis was singing alongside rap trouble- maker Ol’ Dirty Bastard on his cut “Got Your ... Read more in Amazon's Kelis Store

Product Description


First heard trying to calm Ol' Dirty Bastard on "Got Your Money" from his Nigga Please, 20-year-old Kelis now appears with her own album. Multi-threat production team the Neptunes turn the aptly named Kaleidoscope into the same kind of playground they provided for ODB, and even singing the masterminds' songs, Kelis quickly establishes it as her own hip-hop-wise R&B turf. Already gaining attention for the ranting "Caught Out There" ("I hate you so much right now!"), the disc proves this unique singer equally as convincing in other complex moods, such as a comic take on romantic pain ("Game Show") and an offbeat memory of childhood ("Roller Rink"). More playful than Mary J. Blige, Kelis makes as strong a first impression--and, like Blige, shows every sign of sticking around. --Rickey Wright

Customer Reviews

Every song has a good beat and actually means something.
My favorite songs are Get Along With You, I Want Your Love, Roller Rink, and In the Morning.
Chishinga Callender
The beat, the lyrics, the vocal arrangement, the ethereal spooky feel to it...OHH!

In the world of copycat R&B artists it is refreshing to hear someone new and different...
Recorded in Virginia Beach, VA. the city that gave you New Jack Swing and put the (Kack, Kack, Kack as Missy Elliot would say) in R&B, comes Kelis. Expect to hear other artists bite the beats from this one too.
People who are real particular about their music will find this CD-the SH(tuff). There is not a track on this CD to skip over. By the time Kelis' soulful vocals lure you in, the beat hits you and then-BAM! DAMN! You just want to turn it up and jam!
If you like Caught Out There, you will love the rest of this CD. Tracks worth mentioning- #9 Ghetto Children (good positive upbeat radio-type song); #14 Wouldn't You Agree (A Jerry Springer Relationship). #2 Good Stuff and #6 Game Show are also good mentionables.
The songs and production quality on this piece is top quality! Unfortunately, a lot of people might miss this one because it came out on Notorious B.I.G week. This CD is for music fans who are into Erika Badu, N'dea Davenport, Brand New Heavies, Angie Stone, Dionne Farris, Grenique, Mary J. Blige, Maxwell, Lauryn Hill and other neo-soul artists.

Remember Kelis? The angry girl with the big, puffy hair? In case you've slept on her, you need to wake up. On her debut CD, Kaleidoscope, she blends R&B, soul, rock, and late-night funk into one. All her songs are produced by the hottest production team around: The Neptunes. They not only write all 10 of her songs (Kelis wrote 3 on her own), but they give her some solidly crafted beats that compliment her high-soprano. All of her songs are tight to me, but if I had to pick my favorite song off of the CD, it'd be the Nightmare Before Christmas-influenced "Get Along With You". The beat is tight and you can hear the pain in her voice when she sings "You took my heartbeat from me/This is the saddest story..". She even has a wicked video to go along with it. Like I said, all of her songs are tight, so I'm just gonna give you a run-through of the tracks:
1. Intro- Pharrell Williams of the Neptunes talks on this intro. He is saying how he found her. If you listen closely you can hear a young-sounding Kelis trying to get a boy to notice her.
2. Good Stuff (featuring Terrar)- Kelis is telling a guy that she has the stuff he's been waiting for. The good stuff. She's telling him to forget about the other girls and come to her. Hell, she'll even throw her heart in free. And if you don't like it, just send her back in 30 days. This track is hot, but it could've done without Terrar's rap. But it's still worth a listen.
3. Caught Out There- This is the single that jump-started her career. Her first single. You've probably seen the video in which alot of angry woman stomp through the street yelling "Yo!!" Kelis is telling her guy "what the hell went wrong in our relationship? and why are you cheating on me with her?" Alot of women/girls can relate to this song.

I am Kelis' little sister, and I have something to say. I was very happy to see so many good reviews for "Kelidescope". For those of you who have judged the album on the single "Caught out there" you are in for a big surprise. Kelis is probably the most divers singer of our time. You have to believe me when I say this album has something for everyone. There are 14 amazing tracks, including an adorable intro. #2, "Good stuff" is a nice up beat, bop your head kind of song that you can't help but sing to. Actualy every song will make you want to sing. No matter what your vocal status may be. Everyone has heard #3 the single. If not you need to crawl out of the hole you've living in for the past month or two. Its like the chick anthum. But nothing for guys to get mad at. Most of them love it too. #4 "Get Along With You" is Kelis in a softer voice along with a hot beat that you cant help but love. #5 "Mafia (featuring Markita" is a song you just have to blast,so you can feel its deep base really get into. #6 "Game Show" is another headbopper that catches your attention. #7 "Suspended" is my favorite one. Its a slow that reveals Kelis' jazzy voice. It dicribes her, spirituly. The words will run deeply through you and make you want to close your eyes and hear it over and over again. #8 "Mars" has a slow swaying part, then a chorus that makes you want to jump up and down saying "yo yo yo yo..." on several ocations I have. #9 "Getto Children" is an inserational song with good advise that she sings with Mare Dorsey and N.E.R.D. #10 "I Want Your Love" Is a good song to sit back and listin to. #11 "No turning Back" Always makes me want to dance.Read more ›

I've had this Cd for about a month now and am really just now getting into it. And when I say getting into it, I mean listening to it from start to finish without having to skip any songs. That is a good CD to me. One you can throw on and sing and dance your heart out. So "Kaleidoscope" is probably going to end up one of my favorite cd's of all time. But I have to give props where they are due. I think the reason this cd is so hot is because of the Neptunes who produced the whole album. Don't get me wrong Kelis can sing and I really really like her voice. She's a good writer and all that. And damn is that girl fine. The inside pictures show her true beauty. She is a natural beauty. But we're not talking about her looks we're talking about her cd. But like I was saying it's all about the Neptunes. Like the first song "Good Stuff" is hot to death, but I really don't like her singing on it, I think she emphasizes the wrong words...or something about her vocal performance doesn't seem right. But the production is off the hook. "Mars" I mean come on what the hell is that song about...it starts off cool, I like the verse about friends it speaks to me. But the last verse is so freaking weird "Do you hear what I'm talking about , they're bout to send your black ** to mars" and than she talks about "the speed of light and laser guns" ? , but damn the production on that song is off like 12 million hooks. Everything about that song is hot except the lyrics. But again Kelis is hot. She's a good writer. "Get ALong with you" is really good, "Game Show" is well written. I really like "Mafia" (my fave part "I'll raise our sons for you, I'll save our ones for you, load up your guns for you").Read more ›
