"Runnin'"

It's not hard to tell that Kelis has combined her British Ninja Tune influence with her Harlem Renaissance roots on this album. "Runnin'" is one of the somber tracks that screams classic Portishead feel. The infusion of light bass and horns with the dreamy hymns and harmonies provide for a psychedelic trance that swept over British musicians more than two decades ago. A long way from the woman who brought you "Bossy," Kelis goes from pushy to reflective as she recalls running away from relationships, problems and all things you may want to turn your back on.
