Sex and food are two pleasures that are (for the time being, at least) still legal. This is the first single from Kelis in seven years, a fridge raid that satisfies. Inspired by the seventies funk of Millie Jackson and Donna Summer, Kelis, in a squidgy synth bath, coos,”Guilty pleasures I just can’t deny”, as some filthy porn is referenced.
The singer, who’s also a cordon bleu chef and has been known to serve from food trucks, has aced it again. This funny, cheekily suggestive video by artist and director Adrienne Raquel is a visual feast of saturated colour. Brilliantly, the track’s refrain features a gurgling laughing baby. Perhaps only Bjork and Kelis-could get away with this. I’m off to gorge on pancakes…

Every Kelis does is perfect to me. What a pop genius.
