Acclaimed R&B pop songstress, Kehlani is taking her SweetSexySavage World Tour to Australia and New Zealand this August. Touring in support of her acclaimed debut album, SweetSexySavage, Kehlani will play Auckland, Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth.
Ever since Kehlani released her first mix tape in 2014, Cloud 19, acclaim for the Oakland-born, R&B singer and songwriter has been unwavering. Her second mixtape released in 2015, You Should Be Here, was universally praised upon release and she was swiftly signed by Atlantic Records. Later that year she embarked on her first headline tour, selling out shows across North America and Europe. In early 2017, she released her debut album, SweetSexySavage, and is lighting fires all over the globe with her new singles CRZY and Distraction.
Kehlani’s musical journey, started in eighth grade when she became a member of the group Poplyfe. The group became a finalist on America’s Got Talent, after which Kehlani set out to find studio time and begin working on her debut mixtape, Cloud 19. Upon release, tastemakers and audiences alike embraced her. Vice proclaimed her an “R&B Artist on the verge of blowing up”.
Soon after, Kehlani released her second mixtape, the Grammy nominated You Should Be Here. The mixtape landed on Noisey’s “50 Best Albums of 2015” and Rolling Stone’s “20 Best R&B Albums of 2015”. Complex also called her one of the “15 Artists to watch out for in 2015”.
Showing no signs of slowing down, in 2016 her song "Gangsta" was featured on the soundtrack for the hit movie Suicide Squad and she collaborated with fellow singer-songwriter Zayn Malik on the track, 'Wrong'.
Kehlani possesses the power to make an impact because she’s so unwaveringly honest. “I am one-hundred percent music” claims Kehlani, and we couldn’t agree more.
