Kehlani is officially back with her latest offering ‘Blue Water Road’ in which the Bay native exclusively came through the Power 106 studios to share a listening experience with some of her biggest fans and the Power Mornings show.
Kehlani’s third studio album is marked with intention, purpose, and experience. Speaking about the process of creating the new project, the songstress details the inspiration behind the latest release to Mornings’ co-hosts Letty, Teddy Mora, and Javen Cannon, as well as lucky Power listeners who popped in for the exclusive interview moment. Inspired by motherhood and her continued spiritual journey, the “Up At Night” singer explains how the album came together in just two months and that much of her creativity is a result of evolving from motherhood.
Speaking on the powerful and moving “Altar” single, Kehlani shares that she’s tapped in more with those who have passed on, and the song is a literal representation of her experiences with communication with those in the afterlife.
As Kehalni expresses that she’s just as normal and regular as everyone else, citing her frequent trips to the grocery store, the star also speaks on the close relationships she’s developed with like-minded artists from Dreamville, such as JID and Earthgang, and even Alicia Keys. Finding connections with Dreamville and other peers in the industry, Kehalni shares her perspective on genre becoming more exclusive yet expanded with more artists being more concerned with making music that they want to make.
Kehlani goes on to speak about when she first started paying attention to hip hop, why she’d be inspired to direct a movie about motherhood, and much more.
