Kelis, the Queen of Sexy Food Songs, Returns with “Midnight Snacks”

Her first single in seven years will have your mouth watering.

Kelis is not only a great cook and a published author with her own cannabis cooking show on Netflix, but is also known for making iconic songs about food. She’s returned with her first single in seven years and it’s as mouth-watering as one might expect from the woman famed for her milkshakes. “Midnight Snacks” has the singer back in the kitchen for a sensual craving.

“I heard the beat, thought it was dope, and the first thing that came to mind was ‘Midnight Snacks,'” she said of the new single. “The Fanatix were like, what are you talking about? And I was like, it makes you feel like a midnight snack! And that was it. It’s funny to me, but I like the fact that you can take sex and food, and you can put these two things together, and they’re totally interchangeable. I love that.

“It isn’t intentional,” she continued about her love of food-checking in her songs. “But the idea is just that food is a very carnal thing. Everyone can relate to it. It’s very human, it’s sensual, it’s something that you crave. And it’s sexy.”

The Fanatix-produced track comes with a very food-porny video directed by Adrienne Raquel. Watch it below.
