Kelis Collaborates With Will.I. Am On “Anything Like You”
“Bossy” [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Kelis’ [/lastfm]“Milkshake” brought all the boys to the yard, but we haven’t heard very much since her experimental electronic dance album from 2009, Flesh Tones.
In what seems like one of the best collaborations since Jay-Z and Kanye, Kelis got together with fellow fashionisto and synth-lover, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Will.I.Am[/lastfm] from the currently “resting” Black Eyed Peas to create an ’80s-sounding new dance track called “Anything Like You” that clearly pays homage (or samples it outright) to [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Visage[/lastfm]‘s “Fade To Grey.”
And here is Visage’s song “Fade To Grey” for comparison.
We absolutely love “Anything Like You,” but we can’t decide whether or not that’s because it sounds like another old school song we love too, “Fade To Grey.”
Either way, being reminded of the cool, sexy wonders of synth is a great belated Christmas present.
