Good job Kelis, I hope your next album will be another hit.
C. Isley
I'm really surprised that this one flopped since it's one of the best songs on the album.

The production is excellent, the lyrics are creative and unique.

I was first introduced to Kelis when I heard the track "Caught Out There". Everyone in America was soon introduced to Kelis' famous statement, "I Hate You So Much Right Now!!!". Kelis' debut CD "Kaleidoscope" was different from any other CD that I had heard. Yes it was r&b music but Kelis' tracks didn't follow the same every day, radio play r&b track. My favorite track was her next single, "Get Along With You" and this CD was in heavy rotation for awhile. Kelis was due to release a 2nd CD for the longest time, "Wanderland" but for some reason the CD was only released overseas, which had many Kelis fans in a fit. One of the tracks "Popular Thug", which originally featured Pusha T of the Clipse was recycled for The Neptunes Presents "The Clones" CD, but featured Nas on the track instead. Kelis' next release in the states didn't occur until 2003's "Tasty". Although some people grew tired of her first single, "Milkshake" because the radio played the track all day, every day, Kelis proved that "Tasty" was far from a one hit wonder. Tracks like "Keep It Down", "Protect My Heart", "In Public" w/Nas, the crazy "Millionaire" w/Andre 3000 and the Raphael Saadiq produced, "Glow", proved that "Tasty" was an all around nice CD.

After you listen to "Kelis Was Here", the first thing that you will notice is that The Neptunes are no where to be found on this CD and unlike "Tasty", "Kelis Was Here" is not on Star Trak. What happened? That only remains to be seen but Kelis still manages to churn some hits out even without the famous 2 man beat team in Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo. Kelis' 1st single, "Bossy" features the often retired, Too Short, who even in his forties can still drop a decent verse. Kelis gives a message that only the ladies can love to a tight Bangladesh beat.

Kelis is always a groundbreaker. She does not follow rules but rather rewrites them based on what mood she seems to be in. This time around she wanted to take a harder edge. Bossy, What's That Right There, Blindfold Me, Weekend, Trilogy, Aww S**t, Handful, and F**k Them B**ches are all harder than the material on her last CD. She still has some slow songs such as Lil Star and Living Proof. She is very sexual with her lyrics and usually can get a little silly with them. On Circus she raps about how the music business is a messy place that replaces female artists every day and is also about how she lies to her fans by making songs that are mindless and not artistic. Kelis is a amazingly innovative singer with a unique voice and look on life. I can't wait too see what comes next.

Kelis shows in this album how versatile her voice can be. It shows that she can have more hits then just a catchy song about milkshakes. The album has a real jazzy feel to it which she was able to mix with R&B/Hip Pop. I think she also made a wise choice by not giving herself a skanky cover and cheap pictures. Good job Kelis, I hope your next album will be another hit.
Obviously there is the hit Bossy that is so fun to move to and sing along with. For all of you that want more catchy tunes:

Blindfold Me: Impossibly sexy tune and fun lyrics
I Don't Think So: Fun song to yell at the top of lungs to, this song has a rock feel to it.
What's That Right There: This song is pretty good, either you will be attached to it or get annoyed by it.
Lil Star: Good song that has feeling put into it with a combination of upbeat male vocals then a more soothing voice from Kelis.

The one thign that really gets me mad about America, besides a few political things, is America sleeps on Kelis. Its so bad its not even funny.

Kelis has always been foward in her musical choices, her vocals(first woman to scream on a track: Caught out there > Ring the Alarm) and with the artists she's worked with. And Kelis was Here is no different.

I personally think that changing labels and not working with the Neptunes(your either doing some silly southern dance or they've produced it) has made her whole album and the first single "Bossy" stand out from the rest of the things leaning and rockin' on the radio.

"Till The Wheels Fall off" Is the most powerful female track I've heard all year. Its has a completely new sound to it,and a driving beat that makes anyone's head bop. "Aww S***!" Proves that you dont have to say the word for the meaning to be felt and the track is killer to boot.

The only things holding it back for me is that, 5 stars takes a really perfect album to get and that like most Kelis fans, we are biased to her first 5 star debut album. But she still stays true to who she is and what her fans love her for. Taking chances and being bossy.

What I hope most from this album is that another hit will come about to hit the main stream radio so that more people will take the time to look beyond "Bossy" to see a clever and inovative album.

Favorite Track: Till the Wheels Fall off

Least Favorite: What's that right there

She has done it again. "Kelis Was Here" brings you even more delicious, beat packed sentious lyrics. Following the same flow of "Tasty", kelis ventures into even more of the ecentric while keeping what makes her so formidible. I can listen to this album all the way through and not skip a song. All the tracks are five stars, I could give this album rating a ten if i could. Her voice is still oozing like chocolate in all the songs. Mixing genres is Kelis' strength, and this album has accomplished what she has set out to do. Each track leaves you craving more, Kelis was there. She did that to you. Jazz, Blues, hip-hop, Kelis was there too. She has dabbled in it and you will be a culprit and addict wanting more. Add Kelis to you collection, put it in your cd player and leave it on repeat.
