Kehlani is starting 2017 out on top by releasing her new debut album entitled SweetSexySavage. This album has been a long time coming and eager fans have been waiting two years for it. The album debuted at No. 1 on the R&B Billboard charts and, due to the positive response, her tour is selling out night after night for it. It also went #1 on iTunes within the first minutes it was released.
Since her album is in clear reference to TLC’s CrazySexyCool, it gives off a similar feel in her music. It has a great 90’s vibe which attracts an audience of two generations, both adults and teens. Since this album is centered around Kehlani’s love life, it hits personal topics many young woman go through and is deeply empowering.
Many have doubted Kehlani and didn’t think she wouldn’t have a comeback after her attempted suicide due to social media backlash, but she certainly proved them wrong in the making of the album. In these 18 tracks she pours out her personal experiences, which makes her songs very genuine.
In this album she conveys weakness, vulnerability, and self-awareness, which most woman are afraid to even touch on. Most love songs may not tell the complete truth of their struggles and the fact that Kehlani is as straightforward about her private struggles sets her apart from other R&B singers. This album also shows her growth as an artist and how she is developing into a more mature young woman.
The album also has no features, which is pretty impressive to do every song independently, although she used music samples from the 90’s music group New Edition in the song “In My Feelings.”
Songs like “Piece of Mind” focus on moving on from a past relationship, Kehlani sings about breaking away from bad habits. She appreciates experience, but she knows it’s something she will never put herself through again.
Lyrics that suggest this are: “At least I learned a thing or two.. About me and you… What we went through. It made me who I am, I am, I am. I can feel again… Won’t be numb again.”
In the song “Too Much,” Kehlani shows the she’s a strong, confident woman who’s not afraid to let everyone know she’s “feeling herself”. This songs is directed to a girl, to help her embrace who she is. Talk about girl power!
Kehlani’s album offers people everywhere advice on love and sends positive messages on how to love yourself and grow as a person.
