Last month, Kehlani teased that two new projects, a mixtape and album, would soon be coming down the pipeline. The R&B singer has made good on at least one of those promises, today formally announcing a new tape: While We Wait is set to hit shelves February 22nd.
While We Wait follows Kehlani’s 2017 album, SweetSexySavage. It’s comprised of a total of nine songs, including the previously shared “Nights Like This” collaboration with Ty Dolla $ign. Additional guests such as 6LACK, Musiq Soulchild, and Dom Kennedy also appear on the mixtape.
To coincide with the announcement, Kehlani has shared a second preview in the form of “Butterfly”. Like a butterfly spreading its wings for the first time, Kehlani’s vocals can be heard gracefully stretching as she sings about a new, exciting prospect that she’s hoping will bloom into something more.
“Oh, I feel it comin, got a rush like I’m runnin/ No, don’t go lookin’ for somethin”, she croons. “You make me feel brand new.”
Take a listen below.
