Yes! Yes! And YES!
The Pharrell goodness train continues running full-steam ahead!!!!
The mega talented rapper/singer/producer has teamed up with another mega talent, Diplo, to collaborate on the new single for his band, Major Lazer.
The result is so dope - and a bit of a departure for Major Lazer.
Aerosol Can has no traces of the Caribbean influence Major Lazer are known for, and also gone is their signature electro sound.
Instead, the band is serving us some Pharrell meets old school The Neptunes!
A super simple drum beat and lots of sickness!
It's Kelis's Milkshake 2014 meets Beyonce's Blow!
Listen to the brilliance above!
Then Major Lazer to listen to more music from Major Lazer!

And she's like, her sauce is better than yours!
Kelis, the original Milkshake maker that took on the world with one of the catchiest most mind-sticking songs in history, has taken a step back from the music world to focus on… cooking!
More specifically, she's a highly trained saucier — an area that had her flourishing early on!
Well, we're super happy to announce that Kelis is launching her very own brand of sauces, starting with a ginger-sesame glaze that sounds mind-blowing!
Kelis actually graduated from the prestigious

We sensed that Kelis had left her Milkshake days farrrr far behind her when we heard her last jazz-inspired track, Jerk Ribs.
We didn't expect her to leave her more recent soulful sounds behind her as well!! And especially so soon!
But her latest collaboration, Hearts, has taken yet ANOTHER entirely different direction!! It’s not pop, it’s not jazzy, it’s electronic! Consider us surprised; Kelis has sure proven her versatility!!
She and Dan Black sing about the heart and how it never sleeps in their new song and music video.
Take a listen and watch somewhat surreal vid! (above)

Mmmm mmmm mmm…
No Milkshake here, but Kelis' new track, Jerk Ribs, is just as delicious.
And when we say "new," we mean it because we've NEVER heard anything like this from her.
Do we hear a horn following that sultry voice??!
It seems like our gurl has left behind the pop sounds for some funky beats that make us want to dance on this eargasmic diet for days to come.
Ch-ch-check out her fresh soulful sound (above)!

Kelis went out of her way to put together one helluva outfit for the ESSENCE Black Women In Music event in El Lay on Wednesday night.
Rocking a reverse Cruella de Vil hairstyle, the Milkshake queen arrived in a black and white dress, which would have looked fine if she left everything else at home.
Unfortunately, she didn't, and everything went downhill thanks to her snakeskin coat, black knee-high boots, gold lion clutch and gobs of jewelry.
Remember Kelis, less is more!
