As promised, Oakland-bred Kehlani rolled out her contribution to the world with her brand new album, SweetSexySavage, today (Jan. 27).
On the 19-track effort, which follows her 2015 Grammy-nominated, You Should Be Here project, Kehlani rides solo. But on the production side, the singer tapped producers Charlie Heat, Pop and Oak, and Jahaan Sweet for SSS‘s backdrops.
Other than releasing lead singles, “CRZY,” “Undercover,” “Distraction,” and “Do U Dirty,” the 21-year-old has shied away from media promotion of SSS. However, back in October, ‘Lani found some time to visit L.A.’s Power 106‘s The Cruz Show to discuss SSS, depression, fame and much more.
“On my first mixtape (Cloud 19), I was really focused on how it sounded sonically,” Kehlani said. “I wasn’t trying to just write, write, write. On the second one (You Should Be Here), I was trying to write, write, write… and I wasn’t focused too much on how it sounded. I wasn’t focused on making sure it sounded full. This one, I really took my time like, ‘Every song, I not only have to write really intensely, but I have to make sure that I push myself to get the sonics correctly.”
Fans can cop CRZY on iTunes, and stream it below on Spotify.
