Despite Kelis‘ ‘Flesh Tone’ being certified plastic, the eclectic singer is pressing ahead with plans for a new single, as well as a European tour.
Full details after the jump…
The 30 year old star announced via her official website that ‘Scream’ will serve as the third single to be lifted from the album. Produced by David Guetta, the release serves as the follow-up to ‘4th of July’ which has thus far failed to set the charts alight – not even the Dance charts (which Kelis has seen the most success on as of late/ re: ‘Acapella).

In any case, the mother of one will be playing many a live date here in Europe during October as part of her new ‘All Heart’ tour. Check out the dates below:

One can’t but commend Kelis for going all out with the plugging of the project. For, terrible sales aside, ‘Flesh Tone’ is a solid album – and has been welcomed by critics accordingly.
What’s more, despite the label making an absolute loss financially on the LP itself, we’re very much in the age of 360 contracts. What this likely means for the former Ms. Nas is the tour may very well only be taking place so as for the label to recoup the $$$ lost on the album itself.
Whatever the case, it’s good to see Kelis keep keeping on. It’s not often an artist continues to plug a flop album (no shade).
