EDITORS’ NOTES

While We Wait serves as a tasty amuse-bouche before Kehlani’s follow-up to SweetSexySavage. The Oakland R&B singer sounds refreshed and fed up with the games—taking lazy lovers to task on “RPG” and “Nights Like This” (6LACK and Ty Dolla $ign, respectively, provide stinging rebuttals). Moments of levity appear in “Nunya,” which takes on exes who can’t mind their business. And “Morning Glory” is like a peak TLC track with Kehlani playing all the roles; she presents the too-real image of herself without makeup, nails, or hair done, asking: Would you still ride? While We Wait possesses equal measures of moxie and vulnerability, framing Kehlani as a wise young woman navigating love and life, eager to leave the past behind.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

A beautiful masterpiece

I honestly listen to this album everyday while getting ready, in the car, or on a walk and I can truly say I don’t skip a song- it’s amazing the amount of nostalgia and versatility this album possesses. Congratulations to her on her new little blessing and May we continue to get amazing music as always going forth! Tsunami mob til the end xo
