All About Kelis, the Artist Who Released Smash-Hit 'Milkshake' Two Decades Ago

Kelis' hit single "Milkshake" still brings its listeners to the yard, nearly two decades after its release.

Since entering the music scene in the late 1990s and releasing her aforementioned hit-single in 2003,

the hitmaker whipped up a musical treat that has forever solidified itself in pop culture history.

The single was not only met with critical acclaim (like receiving a Grammy nomination in 2004), but it dominated the charts,

peaking at No. 3 on Billboard's Hot 100 and becoming Kelis' highest-charting single to date. Furthermore, it has also been featured in numerous TV shows and films.

Following the release of "Milkshake," Kelis — who doubles as a musician and a chef extraordinaire — has drawn fans and foodies alike to her song-inspired-by-cuisine scene.

Subsequent projects include "Jerk Ribs," "Friday Fish Fry" and "Midnight Snacks."

In 2015, Kelis published a cookbook, My Life on a Plate: Recipes from Around the World,

which she described as "an exploration of tastes and cultures, and my experience as a chef, musician, mother, and wife." (Ironically, no milkshake recipe was included.)

While the multi-talent has ventured into the food space, she hasn't exited the music scene completely.

In fact, she's still creating music — and performing, too! Most recently, she performed a set at Mighty Hoopla festival in London attracting many,

of which Bill Murray was among the thousands in the crowd.
