Kehlani performs at Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas at The Linq Promenade in Las Vegas on April  20, 2017.

The singer spoke with Beats 1's Zane Lowe, praising Cardi's rise to success.

After releasing her sweet, soothing record "Honey," Kehlani has fans on edge in hopes of releasing more music. In an interview with Beats 1's Zane Lowe on Thursday (Oct. 26), the SweetSexySavage vocalized her desires to work with Cardi B on a joint project.  “Cardi B, if you’re listening, I’m here for it,” she said.

“I’m down. Let’s do it," added the R&B songbird after Lowe suggested that her and Cardi can be the "new Throne" -- referencing JAY Z and Kanye West's 2011 Watch the Throne opus.

Throughout the interview, Kehlani had glowing remarks for the "Bodak Yellow" MC, who last month netted her first No. 1 single on the Billboard Hot 100. “Everybody fell in love with her. I feel like I’m rooting for the big sister that I never had. This is the girl that made it in front of us," said Kehlani. 

“Nobody can deny it anymore,” she said. “Every hater, I’m sure, that has ever hated on Cardi B, knows all the words to ‘Bodak Yellow.’ That’s guaranteed. Nobody can shake that. I’m the biggest Cardi B fan.”

Kehlani has picked up steam the last several weeks, as she starred in Calvin Harris' "Faking It" video, while also getting in the Halloween spirit for her video "Touch."
