Kehlani is keeping extremely busy these days, not only with new a new album ready to drop before the end of 2021, but she’s learning to balance it all as a mother. Speaking with Power 106 Midday host Bryhana, the Bay Area native discusses what it’s like raising a two-year-old during a pandemic, how she’s ventured into video production, her experience attending the prestigious Met Gala for the first time, and much more.
As we all figured out our new normals, during the novel coronavirus pandemic, Kehalni shares that she became interested in video editing and production one night she got drunk and that inspired her new interest in production, as she’s currently working on a film project. While she picked up a new skill during quarantine, the Grammy award nominee, shared that pandemic life hasn’t really affected her little one as she’s learned to enjoy time with those close around her.
Speaking on new music, Kehlani’s current single “Altar” is the latest offering from the singer, which shows her taking a different approach to her own creativity. Confessing to Bryaha that she’s not so much tied to what her fans expect from her and just wants to create things that are cool to her, Kehlani shares that the meaning behind “Altar” is deeper than just a love song. Lyrically, Kehlani explains, “Altar” is about the relationship you can have with people who have passed on.
The triple-threat talent goes on to speak about attending the Met Gala with Lewis Hamilton, shows love to Janet Jackson, Normani, and Tinashe, and she also explains how she had to remind T-Pain of his legendary status while working on their “I LIke Dat” collab.
