Kelis steps into the California desert for a scorching hot light show in her video for “4th Of July (Fireworks),” the second single to be lifted off upcoming album Flesh Tone (out July 6 in the States.). She initially teased last week with stills and then a 30-second preview of the clip, which was co-directed by herself, photographer John “Rankin” Waddell (who lensed Kelis’ “Acapella” vid) and Nicole Erhlich. Watch below.
“4th Of July (Fireworks)” features Kelis dancing through representations of Earth, wind, water and fire, from sun-up to sundown. But more importantly, those are some hot outfits!
Kelis is set to perform “4th Of July (Fireworks)” on the Tonight Show With Jay Leno on Friday (June 18). Flesh Tone is available on iTunes for pre-order, and includes the bonus track “Carefree American.”
