Kelela is on her promotional grind in support her latest album, Take Me Apart. Recently, the R&B singer appeared on BBC Radio 1’s program, Piano Sessions, and performed two songs.

For her first set, Kelela sang her favorite song from Sade’s 1992 album, Love Deluxe, “Like a Tattoo.” Over st piano keys, Kelela delivers a tender rendition that almost rivals the original version.

For her second performance, Kelela performed “Waiting” from her Take Me Apart album. The Washington, D.C. native turned the club-driven track into a mellow tune with her silky voice sounding oh-so lovely over the upbeat piano groove.

If you’re sleeping on Kelela, please wake up. Her new album is currently available on all streaming platforms. You can also catch the singer on tour later this month. If you want to see her live, peep her tour itinerary at Songkick.com.
