While We Wait

While We Wait

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; they present the too-real image of themself 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 person navigating love and life, eager to leave the past behind.
