Kehlani pours her heart out on her new song “You Know Wassup.”
“Why I gotta beg to be chosen over your vices, over your liquor?” she asks on The Rascals production. “Why I gotta ask for flowers / I deserve roses / I deserve bigger / I know you’re trying to change, but is it all worth the wait?”
A vulnerable Kehlani admits that it’s been a roller coaster of emotions. “I watch your demons cause me drama / Now I’m triggered / All this drama / You’re embarrassed and in shock and we still in love.”
But despite the pain he’s caused her, she still loves the Compton rapper. “And I still tell the world I’m in love with you / ‘Cause I ain’t ashamed to say / Got your name tatted on my wrist / Any bitch got a bone to pick, you know whose phone to hit.”
Kehlani goes on to profess her love for YG and even reveals plans to take his last name. “You’re still my love / You’re still my heart / That’s still my dick / Still wanna be Mrs. Jackson,” she sings. “Waited five years to be on the team / Look damn good fuckin’ with me.”
Last month, video surfaced of YG seemingly kissing a mystery brunette in his red Lamborghini after leaving Todd Gurley’s Halloween party in L.A. He later addressed the cheating allegations, saying he was drunk, but did not kiss the woman.
“He was drunk, got carried away and it was very regretful for putting himself in that situation and hurting Kehlani,” his rep told The Shade Room. “He has no romantic connection to the girl, just a drunken moment carried away.”
The rapper, 29, and singer, 24, went public with their relationship during New York Fashion Week in September. Kehlani shared several photos of them kissing and showing PDA while at dinner. “5 years in the making,” she tweeted.
