In honor of her debut album, Kaleidoscope, turning 20-years-old, Kelis will embark on a tour to celebrate the record she announced on her Instagram account, sharing the tour poster with all the dates. Tickets for the shows are on sale since Friday, November 22. Kelis also sat down with i-d to talk about The Neptunes and her debut album ’Kaleidoscope’. “It was a time when everybody — especially black female artists — was being boxed in doing one thing. I was never good at that anyways,” says Kelis. The album didn’t sell millions:

It debuted at No. 144 on the Billboard 200, and “Caught Out There” reached No. 54 on the Hot 100. Radio said she didn’t fit on R&B stations — “’Black people don’t listen to it,’” she recalls being told — “I kept saying from day one that I’m consistently inconsistent. It only makes sense when you’ve got a body of work. On top of that, it’s packaged in this black skin, and it was just too much. So for [me and The Neptunes], we didn’t care. We were like, we like all of it, we’re musicians. As long as there’s someone to listen, I’m going to keep doing it.”
