On Our Radar: Kelela


10 Nov

Kelela Is Everything You Need Right Now

This week’s artist to watch has been on our playlist for some time now. Every time we’re left mesmerized by her rare voice.

This 34-year young Ethiopian-American singer/songwriter, who goes by the name of Kelela, is pushing forward the entire R&B genre with her music. After dropping her first studio album titled “Take me apart” in October, we’re sure a lot more people can relate to why we fell in love with Kelela in the first place.

Let me know

One of our favorite tracks from her the “Take me apart” album is “LMK“. Its official video directed by Andrew Thomas Huang was everything we wished for. Her looks, her vibe, the attitude… and all that comes with a beautiful voice. Also, have you noticed how she subtly made the obsolete white party a thing again? She’s just everything we need right now.


If you fancy good experimental R&B sounds, you’ll probably like her music. Plus, she is actually a true talent. When we received a youtube notification of Kelela’s new music video for ‘Blue Light‘, we dropped everything to watch this 3:33 min visual gem.
