At long last, Kelis’ second studio album Wanderland has made its way onto U.S. streaming services. The Neptunes-produced project initially debuted in 2001, but never managed to officially release in North America, reportedly due to issues with her former record label Virgin Records.
While the project has mysteriously surfaced on music platforms today, Kelis and fans alike have shown their approval on social media, with the singer herself sharing several posts about the news to her Instagram stories. The 16-song album was completely produced by The Neptunes duo Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo, and includes features from artists including Pusha T and Malice.
“It’s been a long time coming, I had given up… well almost,” Kelis said in a statement to THE FADER. “I was shocked to wake up this morning to see it had been streamed. All the politics of it aside It feels good and I’m happy that it’s been given it’s time to live on speakers across the country.”
