  • This rollicking tune finds Kelis cooing, "You make me hit notes that I never sing." We know that the lover she is referring to isn't Nas, whom she split from acrimoniously in 2010. She told The Sun that Food's love songs are written about specific people, but not her rapper ex-husband. "They all are written about one person and they all aren't. I tried to stick to what I know," Kelis said. "But I don't really look back to the relationship because it was five years ago. It's a long time ago."
