SWEETSEXYSAVAGE WORLD TOUR BEGINS FEBRUARY 21ST IN MONTREAL – STOPPING IN NEARLY 70 CITIES

SWEETSEXYSAVAGE AVAILABL NOW

Rising R&B star Kehlani has announced the release of her eagerly anticipated debut album. SWEETSEXYSAVAGE is available everywhere now.

Recently named among Complex’s “50 Most Anticipated Albums of 2017,” 

SWEETSEXYSAVAGE featured a number of instant grat downloads, giving fans a sneak peak of what to expect on the album. In addition, a deluxe album bundle featuring a limited edition 7″ picture disc vinyl of the singles “CRZY” & “Distraction” – is on offer exclusively via Kehlani’s official website.

What’s more, both “CRZY” and “Distraction” have been joined by hugely popular companion videos, each now boasting over 12 million individual views at Kehlani’s official YouTube channel alone.

The GRAMMY® Award-nominated R&B sensation will celebrate SWEETSEXYSAVAGE with a truly epic headline tour. The SWEETSEXYSAVAGE WORLD TOUR begins Saturday, February 21st at Club Soda in Montreal and then travels the planet through mid-June (see below itinerary), wrapping on June 18th in Los Angeles, CA. Alongside the tour Kehlani is scheduled for a few highly anticipated performances at such upcoming festivals as Indio, CA’s Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival (Sunday, April 16th and Sunday, April 23rd) and New York City’s Governors Ball NYC Music Festival (June 2nd-4th). For complete details and ticket information – including very limited VIP packages – please visit www.kehlanimusic.com/tour. 

In addition, Kehlani has made several high profile appearances including last night’s performance of “CRZY” on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! and a feature alongside Atlantic Record executives in this year’s Billboard Women in Music issue.

Acclaimed by Complex as “a special talent, making the kind of personal music that speaks to her fans as much as it functions as a therapeutic release for her,” Kehlani received her first ever RIAA gold certification last year for the massively popular “Gangsta,” featured on “SUICIDE SQUAD: THE ALBUM,” Atlantic Records’ RIAA platinum certified musical companion to the Warner Bros. Pictures blockbuster. Directed by Benny Boom and featuring the Bay Area-based R&B star in full Harley Quinn regalia, the track’s companion video has proven an equivalent sensation, amassing over 125 million views at YouTube alone.

Critically acclaimed R&B pop songstress Kehlani embodies the title of her 2017 full-length debut album, SWEETSEXYSAVAGE. Her self-actualization comes as the result of an unbelievable journey that began in 2014 with her debut mixtape Cloud 19. A year later, the 19-year-old got the world talking on 2015’s You Should Be Here. After bowing at #5 on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Chart and at #1 on the iTunes Top R&B Albums Chart, the mixtape garnered a 2016 GRAMMY® Award nod for “Best Urban Contemporary Album.” Upon release, Pitchfork praised how, “You Should Be Here’s dynamism and generosity is something to be amazed by,” while Billboard proclaimed it, “The year’s first great R&B album.” It landed on Complex’s “Best Albums of 2015,” Noisey’s “50 Best Albums of 2015,” and Rolling Stone’s “20 Best R&B Albums of 2015.”
