Last week we heard "LMK," the first new track from Kelela's upcoming debut album Take Me Apart. It's an instant classic of a pop-R&B crossover (kind of like if Cassie's "Me & U" had a baby with "Criticize" by Alexander O'Neal and put it in a really interesting outfit), and promises excellent things to come from the record, which is out October 6.

The visuals match the throwback vibe of the song, with Kelela rocking a variety of looks, including a Hard Core-era Lil Kim-esque ensemble (complete with tiny shades, duh), and a chainmail dress which most of us could only dream of pulling off. It ends on a very cool scene featuring some fine white outfits, and you can watch it all above. I'd encourage you to do so, and then feel a way about being nowhere near as fly as Kelela.
