After building a strong indie following organically, and receiving critical acclaim for her 2014 debut EP ‘Cloud 19,’ Bay Area native Kehlani returns with her much-anticipated second mixtape, ‘You Should Be Here.’
The 14-track project includes all new original material and production by her frequent collaborator Jahaan Sweet, and features from BJ The Chicago Kid (“Down For You”), Chance The Rapper (“The Way”), and up-and-coming female rapper Lexii Alijai (“Jealous”).
Kehlani looks to expand on her buzz from Cloud 19, expanding her sound and lyrical maturity on the new project.
“So my last tape was called Cloud 19 and the cover was me sitting on the edge of an airplane, staring at what I considered to be my view of the world like Tsunami clouds and my own planet,” she previously told Vibe. “For this one, I’m sitting on top of a building so I’m more closer to the ground, watching the plane I was just on, take off.”
“[The artwork is seen] from the back of me because I want people to understand that this is all from my view,” she continued. “I want you to experience this mixtape and feel your own story through me.”
