Following turbulent phases in their personal and professional life, Kehlani is ready to unleash their most personal rhapsody yet. This time they’re operating on a higher plane; one that centres joy, healing and fulfilment above all.

They’re in recovery mode from a bout of sickness but it doesn’t prevent the Oakland native from treating our chat as a kind of remedial talk-therapy session, criss-crossing between creativity, self-care, and her deepest emotions.
