Who is Kelela, you ask? Well. Let me tell you. Kelela is an R&B artist based in Los Angeles, whose distinct sound and soothing voice have caught the attention of a number of artists (including Solange Knowles *fangirls*). Signed to the label, Fade to Mind, her hit Bankhead ft. Kingdom was my personal song of last summer and whenever I hear it I feel elated (and you will too!).
Kelela is not only immensely talented but she’s also *the most fly*. Here are a few more reasons why we <3 her so…

Kelela keeps it cool with long dreads and a half-shaven head making me wish I could look as fly as she does.
Kelela exhibits an effortless and nonchalant style that is reminiscent of R&B babes, like Aaliyah, that preceded her. She makes it look way to easy!
In her interviews she seems completely relatable and approachable, like you could run into her at a party and she would be down to hangout (we wish). So fly.
She’s the epitome of motivation
In an interview with Rookie Magazine, Kelela revealed that at one point she believed that 25 would be too old to pursue her dreams. Now, she’s 31 and there is no end in sight. We should all take a lesson from Kelela and ~never give up!
Listen to her EP Cut 4 Me:
The flyest. I can’t.
