MTV IGGY: Kelela Just Wants To Get High (On Love)

By Joseph 'JP' Patterson

Experimental R&B songbird Kelela has followed up her superb grime-leaning mixtape, Cut 4 Me, with a new number entitled The High. First appearing on Kitty Cash’s Love The Free compilation last year, we now get to fully experience Miss. Mizanekristos' seductive treat without any interruptions. For near-six minutes, LA-based Kelela—armed with her breathy falsetto—longs for love’s high over Gifted & Blessed’s minimal, pulsating bass production; laying each gospel-inflected riff and run bare for all the world to hear. Tune in to the sultry sounds of this future-thinking talent, after the jump.
