American singer/songwriter Kelis’ sophomore studio collection “Wanderland” is now streaming on all digital streaming outlets.

Even though the album was not released in US markets, due to Kelis’ departure from Universal Music imprint Virgin Records, “Wanderland” was available in European markets and peaked to number thirteen on the UK Albums Chart.

Entirely produced by The Neptunes (aka Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo), the follow-up to 1999’s “Kaleidoscope” featured lead single “Young, Fresh n’ New,” as well as guest appearances from Pusha T (“Popular Thug”), Malice (“Daddy”), Roscoe (“Digital World”) and John Ostby (“Mr. U.F.O. Man”).

Kelis’ most recent studio collection, the David Andrew Sitek-produced “Food,” debuted at number six on the US Billboard 200 Albums Chart and spawned two singles in the shape of “Jerk Ribs” and “Rumble.”

For her upcoming project, Kelis has teamed up with producers Daniel “Grades” Traynor (Kwabs, Lianne La Havas), Uzoechi “MNEK” Emenike (Beyonce, Christina Aguilera) and Rowan “LOXE” Perkins (Nao, Jaz Karis).
