Stream: Kelela – Waitin


Building off her highly anticipated upcoming album, Take Me Apart, Kelela has released the album’s third single, titled “Waitin.” Along with the two previous single releases, “Waitin” features a cover art of a fragmented black female body. In the song, the D.C. singer-songwriter brings out a Rhye-like R&B/pop sound that feminizes and graceful sounds, singing “Souls didn’t know what to find / Despite what you took, I miss what you gave / Will you stay now?” According to the artist, her new LP hopes to portray “an honest vision of how we navigate dissolving ties with each other and yet remain sanguine for the next chance at love.”

Take Me Apart comes out this Friday, October 6th. Meanwhile, listen to “Waitin” by Kelela below:
