Published: Sunday 1st Jul 2012 by David

It’s been a while, but today saw Kelis return to the scene with ‘Distance‘.

Reportedly pulled from her upcoming LP, the futuristic piece sees the elusive belle beg her love for time apart, supported by a thick veil of production and her ever impressive vocals.

Enjoy below…

    I need to hear the HQ version. Sounds like a iTunes Pop hit tho. Glad Kelis is back, there’s one artist that I have in mind that straight stole her style.

    This song is good but needs some diction. The vocal is very lazy on this.

    She’s real….as ever.
    I’ve never detected phoney on Kelis.

    I love it! Aside from the vocals, which are very weak and poorly arranged, everything else about this track is great! I hope she gets a lot of radio play for it. The US weren’t ready for house/ trance music back when she released ‘Flesh Tone’, but now that type of music is taking over, so I think she has a chance of doing well.

    not a hit but solid album track

    LOVE IT.
    She ALWAYS delivers ALWAYS.
    @diamond TOTALLY agree.
    Kelis has always been fresh and original and doesn’t bite people’s style.

    I saw her a few times in concert and she is on point

    This song is EPIC! Kelis always deliver something fresh to the game. She does it every time.
    From what I was told, this is only the rough version, not the final mixed version. And this is also the radio rip.

    Wack I do not see her being a big star Shame, because most her swag and style has been jacked by those who are stars.

      Uhmm if you havent notice, Kelis doesnt want to be a “‘big star”. Shes a TRUE ARTIST, not a cookie cutter like your faves.

        You just stole the words from my mouth.. Kelis is legit my favorite artist period. She’s perfectly comfortable with where she stands in the game & doesn’t wish to sell out for a shot at the big leagues with is commendable to say the least 🙂

    Nice. Love the production.

    This chord progression is used, abused and tired. In my opinion, the best utilization of this progression was in “Sky” by Sonique.

    • avante GREY July 1, 2012

      Distance is 90’s inspire, idiot. Thats the sound she went for and she nailed it.

  12. I’m not throwing shade, but July 1, 2012

    It might be better sung by someone else…

        RihGOAT could never so please dont compare that talentless ratchet hoodrat to Kelis.

      • Greg F July 2, 2012

        How would Rihanna sing it better when she can’t sing in the first place?? lmfao, it would be cool to hear someone like Leona Lewis take on a song like this though

  13. Truth July 1, 2012

    More than ten years in the game and still making music. Show some respect!!!!! When the HQ version of the song come out ima go crazy. Keep in mind that this is a leak, it’s a backtrack from her Recent Festival in the UK, not the real song.

    Loved flesh tone and this is great as well! She’s actually transitioned in to the dance trance genre properly!
