crush of the week: kelela

k4 k2 k5

in my most humble opinion, kelela is one of the breakout stars on solange’s st. heron compilation album.  the la-based singer/songwriter/producer laces her sultry voice over r&b infused electronic beats AND is absolutely stunning.  in an interview with pitchfork, the daughter of ethiopian immigrants stated “i’ve always wanted to interrupt the space—more than sounding like anything, my commitment has just been to fuck it up.”
