Get Along with You

"Get Along with You" is the third and final single from Kelis' debut album, Kaleidoscope (1999). The song emphasizes on how someone's love and the need to "get along with them" is more substantial than material possessions and even the world itself. This track marked a change in direction for Kelis compared to the previous two singles, and was her first (and so far only) ballad single. The single was and remains her lowest peak to date in the United Kingdom, charting at number fifty-one on the UK Singles Chart. It was a substantially bigger hit there than in the United States, however, where it became her second single not to chart on the Billboard Hot 100.

Music video

The video, directed by Paul Hunter, begins with Kelis, who's in an all black, gothic-like attire, standing in place. She proceeds to open her laced jacket to reveal a new "world". This new "world" shows Kelis standing in an empty street. She sings the first verse while flying around in the dark and gloomy city, with an orange gas appearing from her mouth every time she speaks. She then flies to a flower shop and looks inside where she sees dead flowers that quickly come back to life. After coming out of a well, Kelis walks in a heavily-wooded area, filled with trees. She then stands upon a giant telescope. Kelis then wanders aimlessly to a beach and sits holding a parasol singing. The camera pans to Kelis's feet and she is shown flying over the ocean of which she was previously viewing. After entering another iron gate, Kelis is shown as a doll and begins to disassemble herself. A light begins to emit from her dismembered, clay body; the light begins to shine very brightly, illuminating the seas and the city of which she had traversed.
