She’s the voice that’s been blasting through every girls headphones as you try and yell out your, “Hello gorgeous'”, and “Can I talk to you for a second,” lines when they pass by you with their maxi-skirts and sundresses. This Oakland, CA native is really on the rise. Her Cali street-skater look paired with her soft face pretty much sums her up in a nut-shell. Kehlani’s the type of girl to sing you to sleep with her lullaby voice and then wake up the next day get her Lupe on with you in her newest high-top vans. What more could you ask for in A #WCW?
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.
