First, she gave us “Cut 4 Me” in 2013, “Hallucinogen” in 2015 and now the R&B songstress is back & ready to release her upcoming album “Take Me Apart” following her newest visual “LMK”. In the Björk & Andrew Thomas Huang directed visual, Kelela invites us into the sensual dark side where her appearance is mixed with color wigs & undeniably erotic outfits.
With lyrics like “It ain’t that deep, either way,/No one’s tryna settle down/All you gotta do is let me know” you can only relate to your friends and play this for anyone (meaning your side pieces) who should take a hint and realize it was never serious nor that deep. “LMK” elevated sound gives us a little & positive insight on how much we’re going to enjoy listening to “Take Me Apart” on October 6th.
In her recent interview with Pitchfork, Kelela explains the meaning behind “LMK”, “I just want to live in a world where I can tell a guy, ‘This is the deal: I really want this. I really want you. But it’s also not that deep.’ It’s hard for men to think that a woman is capable of just wanting to get laid without being a ho. ‘LMK’ is a song that’s essentially just like, ‘Just let me know—it’s not that deep either way, you know?”
