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.”

Buddy Reveals Working With The Neptunes (October 10) (2019)

Buddy sat down with hypebeast.com to talk about his future plans and upcoming music where he revealed being in the studio with The Neptunes recently.

When did you begin recording for your second album?
Probably two, three months ago. I’m so in it, I don’t even know. Time is a crazy concept. I’m just trying to finish, you know? Last week it was me, Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo making music. I ain’t kick it with him since, you know – it’s been a minute. I hung out with him and Snoop Dogg, Kid Cudi. But we were working together. I was working with The Neptunes. That shit’s everybody’s dream. That’s probably the most exciting thing that happened to me.

It was fire because the next day, Pharrell had to bounce because he’s busy. Then I told Chad to pull up. He pulled up and he was kicking it with me. I was trying to write some of the raps because I had mumbled it and he was trying to figure it out. He would be like “Nah, that’s tight,” or, “You sure you trying do it like this?” I had help, you know. It was fire.

Do you think you’ll release new music this year?
Yes. I think I’m gonna drop this year.

Blink-182 Reveal Collaboration With The Neptunes featuring Lil’ Uzi Vert

muller-4993dfc418148
In a new interview on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show tied to the premiere of their new single “Happy Days,” Blink-182 let slip some information about an unlikely side project that they recorded while working on their upcoming, as-of-yet-untitled album. (“Bojmir,” or “rimjob” spelled backwards, is apparently one of the names in consideration.) The resilient pop-punk band has apparently been working on “a lot of collaborations” recently, and spent time in the studio with Pharrell Williams and Chad HugoThe Neptunes, that is—working on a collaborative song which also features Lil’ Uzi Vert.

“I came in to sing the end of this song, and Travis came into play drums,” bassist and vocalist Mark Hoppus explained to Lowe. “And Pharrell was like, ‘Well, what about this idea?’…I was like, ‘Hmm, I don’t really know if that’s the right fit.’ And Travis was like, ‘Well, why don’t we just jump in and try and see what happens.’ So Travis plays drums on it. Sounds cool.” He continued: “We’re at Conway Studios, one of my favorite studios here in L.A… it’s just like Chad, and me, and Pharrell… And so I write these lyrics, I get in the booth and I sing it real quick.”


Later, Hoppus explained Lil’ Uzi Vert was in the studio with Pharrell, heard the song, and “loved it so much” that he asked if he could contribute to it. “I love stories about back in the day, where somebody is in the studio and somebody else comes in, and happens to be there. And it’s like, ‘Oh yeah, can I get on this record?’” Hoppus explained.
