Trick Me (3:25)

Cover of The Hits

From The Hits and 70 other releases

Trick Me is a song by American R&B singer Kelis from her third studio album, Tasty (2003). Written and produced by Dallas Austin—well-known for writing and producing hits for artists such as TLC and Janet Jackson—, the ska-tinged track was released as the album’s second single in May 2004. While it was released in most countries around the world, Kelis’ U.S. label, Arista, folded right after releasing the hit single “Milkshake”, so Kelis’ album Tasty remained stagnant and its promotion halted. However, the European label for the singer, Virgin, decided to have a video shot to back the single release, directed by Little X. “Trick Me” became Kelis’ biggest hit in Europe after “Milkshake”.

The single has sold 147,000 copies in the United Kingdom and 140,000 copies in Australia, being certified double platinum in the latter.

English indie rock band Reverend and the Makers chose to cover this song when they guested on the Live Lounge segment of BBC Radio 1’s The Jo Whiley Show on May 30, 2007.

“Trick Me” was released as the second single in Europe and everywhere else outside the U.S.; it did not chart in the U.S. because its music video was not released there, although it did manage to chart on the U.S. Bubbling Under R&B/Hip-Hop Singles at number seven. In the UK “Trick Me” earned Kelis her second and second consecutive top five hit when it debuted at number two. However it was only able to hold the number-two position for a week, compared to “Milkshake” which had spent four weeks at number two; nonetheless it sold 147,000 copies. In countries such as Germany, France, the Netherlands, and Switzerland, it outpeaked “Milkshake”. It reached number two in the Netherlands, so far her highest-charting single there.
