Kehlani’s forthcoming 19-track album SWEETSEXYSAVAGE is living up to its name. She shared the ‘sexy’ with a risqué visual for her lead single “Distraction,” then the sweet with “Advice.” Now, the Atlantic Records signee is giving ‘savage’ with “Undercover,” an apologetic love song.
“You know they don’t wanna see us together, but it don’t matter no cause I got you,” she sings over etheral background vocals and plunky guitars. “They don’t wanna see it happen but we say f–k it.”
The meaning is a huge contrast from her previous cut off the LP. “I was just out of a really bad relationship with someone who I really thought who was going to be like the one person for me and ended up showing me so many times that they weren’t,” she told Zane Lowe, adding, “I realized there’s a bunch of girls who are going through the same thing and they needed to hear from somebody.”
