Kehlani knows that she has plenty to bring to the “Table.”
Teaming up with her friend and producer Jahaan Sweet and UK rapper Little Simz, the Tsunami Mami is clearly having a lot of fun with her music. Her new track, which is probably inspired by Solange’s number one album A Seat at the Table, finds Lani confidently boasting that she knows she has plenty to bring to the ‘table.’
The Bay Area princess brings the heat throughout the whole song, and opens her second verse even stronger than her first. “I know what I bring to the table (to the table) / I know what I bring to the table (to the table) / I know I’m not no messiah, and I am far from a profit / But if the earth set on fire, I think I know how to stop it / I’m not afraid of opinion / I know the Devil be working / I just keep up with my focus and keep my nose in these verses.”
Using this song to introduce to her fans, Little Simz, the rapper spits bars just as strong as Kehlani’s verses. “I try my best to be loving, and give my all when it’s needed / I make the best of my time and learn all that it teaches / Don’t take my kindness for weakness / Steady dealing with madness / So I pick up my chalice because what’s life without balance.”
With Lani serving us tracks like this, ‘SSS’ can’t seem to come out fast enough. We’re anxiously waiting for her debut album to drop!
