Kelela Mizanekristos, a second-generation Ethiopian-American born in Washington,
debuted with the mixtape
Cut 4 Me (2013) and the EP Hallucinogen (2015).
The album Take Me Apart (2017) was an industrial product designed by
a cast of producers that included
Jam City (Jack Latham), Ariel Rechtshaid and Arca (Alejandro Ghersi), a huge
investment to turn her into a pop star.
The arrangements are as conventional, predictable, abused and traditional
as possible, as proven by the singles
LMK and Frontline.
Any teenager could do them if only was granted access to multimillion
dollar studios. And her lyrics are beyond ridiculous.
The monumental effort by her owners resulted in massive media coverage,
but also in one of the most tedious albums of the year.
The songs sound all the same, but maybe Blue Light is the one that
raises a bit over the shallow standard.
