Rapidly emerging R & B artist Kehlani is bringing her SWEETSEXYSAVAGE tour to Tempe on April 18, 2017. Touring in support of her third release, Kehlani is in the midst of 61 stop tour that takes her throughout Europe and across the U.S. and Canada.
Kehlani’s 2015 release You Should Be Here, entered at #5 on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Chart and at #1 on the iTunes Top R&B Albums Chart. It earned her a 2016 GRAMMY® Award nod for “Best Urban Contemporary Album.” Pitchfork proclaimed that “You Should Be Here’s dynamism and generosity is something to be amazed by,” while Billboard called it 2015’s “first great R&B album.”
Kehlani began working on SWEETSEXYSAVAGE almost immediately after the debut of You Should Be Here. Her experience on the road in support of You Should Be Here made an indelible impact on her approach. “When I’d play shows, I realized what songs people were having fun to and what songs people got emotional to,” she continues. “The whole point of this album is for me to have the most fun I can. It’s about how I grew through being on my own and traveling. I felt like I didn’t have shit to prove to nobody.” The result is that SWEETSEXYSAVAGE displays Kehlani naturally sharing herself, her emotions, and truth.
Kehlani will be at the Marquee Theatre on April 18, 2017.
