Welcome to our new segment #MixtapeMondays, where we at True Exclusives plan to highlight some of our favorite mix-tapes (old and new), and feature new indie projects that have been sent to us for our own personal reviews.
For our first mix-tape feature, we would like to highlight an artist we have grown to label ‘bae’. The Oakland sensation that is Kehlani, has won us over with her raw lyrics, soothing vocals, crossover appeal, and swift dance moves, and we are more than excited to revisit her first official mix-tape and share it with our readers. Its been a year since Kehlani has made her musical debut with the release of Cloud 19, and since then, she has been performing for sold out venues on her You Should Be Here tour.
Housing some of our favorite Kehlani cuts, such as ‘1st Position‘, the Cali club banger, ‘Act A Fool‘, and the Ginuwine sampled, ‘Get Away‘, Cloud 19 was the perfect introduction for the Belle of The Bay. The mix-tape effortlessly summarizes who Kehlani is as an artist, and a person. We were certainly sold after our first listen and have been a fan ever since. Check out the complete mixtape below, and the 20 year old talent may have you referring to her as ‘baelani’ before the night is over. If this mix-tape leaves you craving me, make sure you check out her album, You Should Be Here, available now on itunes.
