Kelis – “Jerk Ribs” Video

We first posted “Jerk Ribs,” Kelis’s first collaboration with the TV On The Radio production mastermind Dave Sitek, 10 months ago, when it was still called “Call On Me.” The percussive soul-funk workout is now the cornerstone of Food, Kelis’s forthcoming Sitek-produced album, and now it has an appropriately sunny video. The clip mostly has Kelis getting glammed up for photoshoots and then posing in said photoshoots, which is honestly probably how she spends a lot of her life. My favorite part is where she thinks she sees a bug and sort of veers her head away. There’s also a nice interaction with a giraffe. Watch it below.
