It’s been anticipated that Kehlani album would be a hit, and the American singer and songwriter proved it by having a lot to say on her songs, which are blunt, unintimidated and bold. Sweet Sexy Savage is her debut studio album and was released earlier this year by Atlantic Records.
The album tells her story in a meaningful and soulful way, it speaks about her unimpeded success. As an upcoming artist she was the vocalist of a covers band that earned fourth place on ‘’ America’s got talent’’. Kehlani’s talent and determinate spirit has consistently grown, her previous album which was promoted as a mixtape You Should Be Here served as key aspect of what she was about. Sweet Sexy Savage shows her work and her unique style in song writing and performances.
The RnB album takes us back to the times of TLC’s CrazySexyCool album, and shows RnB as musical journey , from its 90’s clothing, hairstyles and mood. The album also highlights what women go through in relationships and how men treat them, and how they retaliate. One of the tracks ‘’CRZY’’ is an anthem of women becoming even and hitting back, ‘’if I gotta be a bitch, I’mma be a bad one. This album speaks truth and boldness which most people aren’t able to say in relationships or society. It reveals what today’s music is about, full of men with meaningless words and scumbag behaviour and women exploring that side of themselves.
The track ‘’Distraction’’ is about an independent woman with clear set, disinterested boundaries ‘’I can’t say I give my all…are you down to be a distraction? The album is speaks on women being able to treat men the way they’ve been treated for years and being brave and bold enough to say it out loud. It’s clear to say the Kehlani is not afraid to write her raw feelings and perfectly captures the disastrous relationships in her use of words.
It’s thrillingly to say the Sweet Sexy Savage is Kehlani’s best art of work, she’s a great performer, writer and has a voice beyond talent.
