Kehlani tells it like it is. Whether in conversation or on stage, the Oakland-born R&B singer and songwriter gives the straight truth about her life, pain, passion, love, triumph, and everything in between with collected calm and confidence. It’s that type of honesty that makes her music resonate with the depth of classic Motown and a vividly confessional lyricism reminiscent of Neo Soul. At the same time, her 2015 mixtape, ‘You Should Be Here’, tells a story that distinctly belongs to her.
In late April 2015 she shared ‘You Should Be Here’ Mixtape with the world, which earned Kehlani her very first GRAMMY nomination at the 58th GRAMMY Awards for “Best Urban Contemporary Album.” Upon its release Billboard immediately called this project “The year’s first great R&B album”. Amongst their great review, You Should Be Here has seen quite a bit of success on the charts. Aside from being the top R&B debut of the week, it also came in at #1 on the US iTunes R&B/Soul chart and #2 on both the US Overall R&B Albums and Current R&B Albums chart.
And most recently she features in the ‘Best Album category’ at 2016 GRAMMYs and for ‘Gangsta’ off of the ‘Suicide Squad’ Soundtrack for 2017 GRAMMYs.
KEHLANI’s highly-anticipated debut album SWEETSEXYSAVAGE – available for pre-order now. All album pre-orders will receive 3 instant grat tracks – “CRZY,” “Distraction,” & “Advice”
