2017 release. 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. Kehlani achieved initial fame as a member of the teen pop group, Poplyfe, which was a finalist on America's Got Talent. She released her first mixtape, Cloud 19, in 2014. The album was listed among Complex's 50 Best Albums of 2014. Kehlani's second mixtape, You Should Be Here, debuted at #5 on the national R&B/Hip-Hop chart in 2015. In 2016, she was nominated for the Best Urban Contemporary Album Grammy Award for You Should Be Here.
