Kelis – ‘Distance’ (Prod. by Skream) | New Music

Outside of one or two of recent live dates, the most we have heard from Kelis is her reaction to the somewhat controversial cover art for Nas' highly anticipated forthcoming 10th solo album Life Is Good.
In the process of putting together her sixth studio album, the former Neptunes protégé has decided to give her loyal fanbase a taste of things to come on the form of her new Skream produced cut entitled 'Distance.' Its a smooth sounding electronic track with a slight UK Garage flavour to it, that if officially release could possibly go down well in the clubs over here in Europe. Listen to the track below and let us know what you think of it in the C-Section.
