Kehlani Announces Debut Album ‘SweetSexySavage’

Kehlani’s album title is a mystery no more. The Bay Area singer has revealed the name of her highly-anticipated debut.

Originally billed as just SSS, she took to Twitter to disclose the meaning behind the acronym: SweetSexySavage.

“SWEETSEXYSAVAGE,” tweeted Kehlani. “….is the name of my debut album.”

When a fan critiqued the title, Kehlani responded, “Way too intellectual to be sweet? Or too intellectual to be sexy? Or too intellectual to be savage… Arent we all of the above as women?”

SweetSexySavage, her first project since 2015’s Grammy-nominated mixtape You Should Be Here, has already spawned the singles “CRZY” and “Distraction,” for which a video recently debuted.

“This one, I really took my time like, ‘Every song, I not only have to write really intensely, but I have to make sure that I push myself to get the sonics correctly,” Kehlani told Power 106’s “The Cruz Show.”

SweetSexySavage is due Jan. 27, 2017.
