The singles; Creator, L.E.S Artists and Lights Out are among the biggest hits from the album. The album itself ranked sixth on Rolling Stones’ Albums of the year list while L.E.S Artists secured a second spot on Singles of the year.

She performed with some of the biggest names in the music fraternity starting from M.I.A and Bjork to Coldplay, Jay-Z, Kanye West, and Beastie Boys. She wound up the tour in August 2009 after giving another spellbinding performance at the Lollapalooza Festival in Chicago. The festival gave a further boost to her already skyrocketing career and established Santogold as one of the best live performers. Billboard was all praise for her and stated that she “drew a headliner-sized audience”.

She is a musician in true sense of the word as every song of hers is an expression of her soul. Thus, The Keepers is a song from this album exemplifies it the best.
