Watch Kelela Perform “Waitin” and Cover Sade’s “Like a Tattoo”

The visually stunning and sonically phenomenal Kelela has been hard at work and we couldn’t be more enamored watching her soar. Our girl just released her long-awaited debut album Take Me Apart which we can just barely keep from playing over and over again, and she’s already gearing up to impress fans with her pleasantly overwhelming charm and sass live and in the flesh on tour. After performing “LMK” on the latest episode of Later… the songstress stopped by BBC Radio 1 show “Piano Sessions” (with Huw Stephens) to bless everyone with a taste of her live aesthetic.

Surfing a newly arranged, piano-centric rendition of the third single from Take Me Apart, “Waitin,” Kelela’s rapturously soft falsetto resounds. But the bliss heightens following the singer-songwriter’s masterfully flawless performance of her own material when she pays homage to R&B/Soul’s beloved enchantress Sade by covering the Love Deluxe deep cut “Like a Tattoo.”
