Kelela Gives Us A ‘High’ We Won’t Soon Forget

Kelela The High Cover

While "Go All Night" and her Cut 4 Me mixtape already had me falling for Kelela, meeting and chatting with her at this year's MojaMoja Brunch and Benefit Concert certified that I was in love with the up-and-coming songstress. And now, you will be too — that is, if you aren't already. She mentioned to me during our chat that she's working on an album this year, saying that she was pushing for "highly innovative tracks and instrumentals that sound 100% amazing without the vocal." It looks like she might've found what she was looking for from producer Gifted & Blessed. On new track "The High," the producer laced Kelela with a slow-pulsing, hypnotic beat full of mood. And the songstress rises to the challenge, effortlessly riding the track with a breathy vocal performance about a lovers' rendezvous that gives her an unshakeable high. As if this darkly erotic track wasn't enough, it comes with news that she'll embark on a short headlining tour that will rock Austin, Los Angeles and New York City. While 2013 was very good to her, it's looking like 2014 might just be Kelela's year. Get caught up in "The High" right here and then peep when and where you can catch her live show.

3/12 – 3/14 Austin, TX – SXSW
