This is just the beginning for this R&B singer from the Bay! If you haven’t heard about the 19-year-old Oakland native Kehlani by now, just know 2015 is hers and you will soon.
Kehlani released “Down For You” and “How That Taste” off her forthcoming project You Should Be Here last week, and now she returns with her latest, “Jealous.” Jealous will be available for purchase on iTunes April 14, and the entire project on April 28. If you pre-order YSBH now though you will instantly receive “How That Taste” and “Down For You.”
This track features Lexii Alijai, a 17 year old Minnesota artist, and was produced by none other than Jahaan Sweet. Every time these two come together it’s pure gold that is created! Kehlani told Complex Mag Via email that “Jealous is about recognizing intention… having to end things with someone because they’re about your lifestyle not necessarily you. I feel like a lot of people with any sort of success have been through something like this. A lotta people lack integrity.”
Kehlani recently stopped by Hot 97 to sit down with our own Peter Rosenberg to talk music, tattoos, and her rough upbringing and struggles on “Real Late.” Check that out if you have the chance and don’t forget to pre-order YSBH!
