KEHLANI SAMPLES NEW EDITION’S “IF IT ISN’T LOVE” ON NEW RECORD “IN MY FEELINGS”
The Oakland songbird Kehlani is back on the scene with a new album and ready to make waves. Its crazy to think this is actually her debut album! This little lady has put in work and ready for us to hear what she has to say.
“SweetSexySavage” doesn’t veer far from the mixtape vixen we fell in love with. She offers the label radio-friendly records (“Distraction” and “Undercover“), but she really gives us those deep yet personal tracks as well (“Not Used To It” and “Personal“). As a fan I was scared that the label would water her down or all her personal troubles would make this album too emo; man was I wrong.
One track that personally gave me life was “In My Feelings,” which samples New Edition‘s classic hit “If It Isn’t Love.” After watching the BET-produced biopic about the legendary boy band, I fell in love with their music all over again. It really shows Kehlani is wise beyond her years to sample that type of record. The sample is subtle but gives me everything I need and more. Atlantic Records would be crazy to not make this a single right about now.
