Depending on the day, I will always think of “Bossy” and/or “Milkshake”* when I see Kelis’ name. However, Nas’ ex has another side to her in songs like “Rumble.”
Gone is her cocky demeanor, and in its place is a more mellow, piano driven song that has some brass to finish it off on a high note. It’s hard the believe that they’re all the same artist, but this is a nice change of pace for the singer.
* — I always think of that song when Mean Girls is referenced in writing or conversation.
