The R&B heater of the year is here. Kehlani's new single up at night ft. Justin Bieber is such a banger, it's set to top your playlist for the rest of 2022 and beyond.
The single is from Kehlani's highly-anticipated third album, blue water road. Set for release on April 29th, blue water road is available for pre-order/pre-save/pre-add now.
We will literally be playing up at night on repeat between now and the album dropping.
The single alchemizes a head-nodding throwback beat, sultry verses, and an ecstatic hook punctuated by Kehlani’s effervescent and entrancing delivery. Longtime friend Justin Bieber pulls up with a show-stopping cameo. This collaboration follows their joint effort on Get Me off of Justin’s 2020 album Changes.
Of the track, Kehlani explains, “It’s about having a healthily obsessed relationship. You’re telling someone, ‘I love you so much it keeps me awake at night’. I love what Justin did, and it’s such a fun one to dance to.”
Last month Kehlani released little story. The refreshing track is executive produced by Pop Wansel of production duo Pop & Oak, while also featuring the production stylings of VA-bred producer duo Some Randoms and producer Wes Singerman.
little story was also released alongside a cinematic visual that shows the beauty of simplicity - and includes a cameo appearance from Kehlani's adorable daughter.
This track arrived on the heels of the release of altar the pulsing & yearnful first single off of the album that Kehlani released in September 2021.
Kehlani’s second full-length album It Was Good Until It Wasn’t has been streamed a jaw-dropping 1 Billion times globally to date.
We can't wait to wrap our ears around blue water road, and see what's next for the R&B icon.
