9 Songs, 30 Minutes

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.

Love it.

I love every song. My favorites are Footsteps, Butterfly and RPG. Amazing work Kehlani, first album by someone where I didn’t skip a song. Can’t wait for your next project 💕

HUGE HUGE KEHLANI FAN BUT..

I’m a huge fan of hers. However this mixtape isn’t doing it for me. Hopefully with a few more listens I will like it more’

Honestly I Love Lani 😏

I Think She Is Amazing & Gorgeous & Glows Like No Other Human Being On The Planet ❤️ BUT If I Must Be Honest I’m Not Feeling This Mixtape As Much. Maybe The Songs Have To Grow On Me?
