Last January, Kehlani swept through the realm of R&B with her captivating debut album SweetSexySavage. While she has remained mostly mum since dropping that sizzling release, on Tuesday (Oct. 3) she stepped back into the spotlight with her sticky earworm “Honey.”
The stripped down acoustic record finds the 22-year-old singing about her adoration for women. “I like my girls just like I like my honey; sweet/ A little selfish/ I like my women like I like my money; green/ A little jealous,” she sings on the hook.
On Monday, Kehlani begen tantalizing fans with several pictures on Instagram, asking if she should release new music. Her most revealing post came when she posted a photo of a hand dripped in honey. She asked fans to comment a honey emoji if they wanted her to liberate a new track. After her devotees buzzed in with a resounding yes, Kehlani dropped off her new song the following day.
