''Flesh Tone'' is the fifth studio album by American singer-songwriter Kelis, first released on May 14, 2010. Recorded whilst the singer was an unsigned artist and whilst pregnant with her first child the record is an ode to motherhood and is a distinct departure from the urban sound of her previous album, ''Kelis Was Here''. Production for the songs comes courtesy of David Guetta, Boys Noize, Jean Baptiste and Benny Benassi amongst others.

''Flesh Tone'' was described as a pop album but adopts electro pop, synthpop, house and dancehall elements to form a "euphoric dance album" which tributes the birth of Kelis' son. The record serves as her debut with Interscope Records under the will.i.am music brand. Clocking in at just over 37 minutes, contemporary critics praised the album for being cohesive as well as refreshing and lean. "Acapella" was released as the album's lead single and topped the U.S. Dance/Club Songs and UK Dance charts as well as peaking at top-ten on mainstream single charts in Europe. "4th of July (Fireworks)" is the follow up single. - Wikipedia
