Kelis "Jerk Ribs" (live on 'Letterman')

Kelis "Jerk Ribs" (live on 'Letterman')
Current Exclaim! cover star Kelis' new Food LP came out of the oven yesterday (April 22), and to celebrate, the R&B singer and a 12-piece band brought a sizzling version of the set's "Jerk Ribs" to the Late Show with David Letterman.

Leading the charge, of course, is Kelis, whose breathy vocals reminisce about getting lost in rhythms and melodies. In real time, peppery afrobeat percussion, buttery backup vocals, a poppin' horn section and more collude into a mouthwatering arrangement.

You can sample the soulful smorgasbord down below.
