Motormouth diva Kelis Rogers represented a real shot in the arm for the R'n'B scene when she first burst into the charts back in 1999. A New Yorker with a multicoloured afro and bizarre taste in clothes, Kelis is more likely to sing about murders and alien abduction than anything resembling a straightforward love song. Her new album contains elements of RandB, soul and rock, all hung together by Kelis's aggressive vocal delivery and intriguing, if sometimes confusing lyrical imagery. Brilliantly produced by hip-hop stars the Neptunes, Wanderland is a strikingly original album that's perfectly chart-friendly and yet somehow a million miles away from the mainstream.
