“Acapella” is a song performed by American recording artist Kelis, taken from her fifth studio album Flesh Tone (2010). The song is a departure from her past singles in that it is a dance/electronic track rather than hip hop/R&B influenced. The song was first premiered on her Twitter page and her official website in November, but was digitally released February 23, 2010 as the lead single from the singer’s fifth studio album Flesh Tone.
The song’s co-writer Makeba Riddick revealed that the song had previously been called “Majestic”. Kelis stated that she wrote the song “with love and life in my mind” and as a tribute to her son, Knight. It has received positive reviews from critics many of whom praise the song for its inspirational lyrics and for its uptempo feel-good vibe which includes angelic harmonies. The song was listed at #20 on the NME‘s best tracks of 2010, which they describe it “her most thrilling tune since ‘Milkshake’”. From wikipedia
