Fans of Kehlani are beside themselves right now. Their fave has finally dropped off her sophomore offering It Was Good Until It Wasn’t and boy, is it an essential item that we needed to get through this quarantine period.
It has been a long and winding road for Kehlani since the release of her debut album SweetSexySavage in 2017. The 25-year-old has made headlines for good and bad reasons.
Her relationship with LA rapper YG ended abruptly and she may deny it but the fact that the breakup happened in view of the public must have hurt.
Kehlani also lost a good friend recently. Lexii Alijali died on New Year’s Day 2020 at the age of 21. Her death was ruled as an accidental overdose from a toxic cocktail of fentanyl and ethanol.
As tumultuous as life has been for Kehlani in the last three years, there were also great moments. In May 2019, she welcomed a baby girl named Adeya.
