Being the only other artist featured on Zayn’s debut solo album, Mind of Mine, is a pretty big gig. So it’s safe to say that R&B singer Kehlani is set to blow up very soon. If you haven’t already heard about her, get ready to meet your newest crush. Opening with a Star Wars themed gift from the Human Serviette, the tatted up singer still rocks her nerdy side in this peppy interview.
Her 2014 mixtape Cloud 19 was her entrance to the scene but it was her second mixtape, You Should Be Here, that gave her the breakout she needed. This made the 20-year-old singer a good choice for Zayn’s first crack at the R&B scene that he was restricted from back in his boy-band pop days. The Oakland native has a husky voice that sounds just as cute when she’s laughing with Nardwuar about her burger flipping days, as it sounds sexy on her tracks. Be sure to watch the interview above, and keep on eye on this rising star.
