Kelela dropped by BBC 1 Radio last night for an incredibly stripped-down set.
Kelela is having a moment.
<p>The Ethiopian-American singer dropped her much-anticipated album <em>Take Me Apart</em> last week, and she's the current <em>Fader</em> cover star. In <a href="http://www.okayafrica.com/kelela-white-people-dont-understand-black-women-dont-space-suck/" target="_blank">her cover story, the singer spoke candidly</a> about how black artists aren't afforded the same space to fail as their white counterparts—as you can see, this woman speaks the truth. </p><p> Last night the artists made an appearance on BBC Radio 1's "Piano Sessions," where she delivered a sultry cover of<strong> Sade</strong>'s 1992 song "Like a Tattoo" from her acclaimed album <em>Love Deluxe</em>. Kelela certainly does the track justice. </p><p> Watch her performance below, and check out our <a href="http://www.okayafrica.com/kelela-take-me-apart-black-women-sexuality/" target="_blank">full <em>Take Me Apart</em> album review</a>.</p><p><div class="preroll-video"></div><ora-player></ora-player></p><p><br> <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/yqVxMDwGtBo" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen=""></iframe> </p>
