Kehlani is celebrating her birthday with a special gift for her fans…
The part-Mexican American singer surprised fans with a gift on her 25th birthday today on Friday (April 24): the title and cover art for her sophomore album.
It Was Good Until It Wasn’t will be released on May 8 via Atlantic Records.
The album artwork features Kehlani standing on top of an outdoor chair with a running hose in one hand, her other hand perched atop a wall as she peeks into her neighbor’s world.
Initially, Kehlani announced on March 15 that she planned on pushing back the releasedue to coronavirus.
“to be transparent, i HAD a release date. we’re unable to complete any of our plans or move forward with the album at the moment due to the pandemic,” she wrote on Twitter.
Right around that time, she dropped the sultry breakup ballad “Toxic” with a Ty Dolla $ignassist.
“i almost wanna feel a way when people assume what/who the songs i release are about , but on the flip side.. it means people trust and put faith in my transparency.. expecting vulnerability & honesty from me everytime now,” she tweetedsynchronously with the release of “Toxic.”
On April 16, she released “Everybody Business,” a fingerpicked guitar earworm about media’s laser focus on her love life and private affairs.
In the last few months, Kehlani has also dropped “You Know Wassup,” “All Me” featuring Keyshia Cole, “Konclusions” with YGand “Valentine’s Day (Shameful).”
But fans have been waiting since While We Wait, which came out in February 2019, for another project.
She hasn’t released a full-length LP since her debut album SweetSexySavage back in January 2017, which peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard 200.
