Kehlani is no stranger to the public eye. From watching her relationships fold in the public’s eye, the Bay-Area singer has never been the type to run to social media to air out her significant other. Instead, like a real artist, she tells all in her music. Taking advantage of the quarantine by shooting visuals to her singles in the comfort of her home so creatively, Kehlani returns with her sophomore album, It Was Good Until It Wasn’t.
“it’s been a long road. an uphill battle. feeling like i was only seen and not heard, and even when seen.. was i felt? i spent nights questioning if my art still meant as much to my fans as it did to me. i pushed thru this album,” said Kehlani on Instagram. thru new motherhood, postpartum issues, heartbreak, loss, grief. i lost 2 people i called sister. i lost love i considered unbreakable. i cried. i wiped the tears. everyday there was effort to heal. i’m still trying. this album, making it with my friends, being supported by an incredible team i consider family, felt personal. it felt like a win for all of us. it felt like a lot like You Should Be Here. i remember being barely 20 and wide eyed, hungry and hopeful, grateful as ever. today i dapped 20 year old me up and said she’d be super proud she got her groove back. proud she ain’t gave up. proud she made something the world feels. from me, my family, and everyone who participated in making this the biggest most beautiful moment of my entire career so far… thank you. #ItWasGoodUntilItWasnt“
