Capitalizing on the best part of Bloc Party, lead singer Kele Okereke has stepped out and found a better place for his vacant and sexy vocals: the club. Enlisting Spank Rock producer XXXChange for his solo debut, The Boxer, Kele released an early-summer single, "Tenderoni," which served as a dirty and thumping introduction to his true calling: catchy, hook-nailing divo. Embarking on an extensive U.K./U.S. tour this month, Kele should more than satisfy bereaved Bloc Party fans while gaining a new legion of bassheads and booty-shakers.
