Kehlani is back with another new song, this time accompanied with a very Oct. 13-appropriate visual. The Oakland singer's "Touch" debuted via a Halloweeny new visual on Friday, created in partnership with Budweiser and director Fleur Fortuné.
The video, according to Billboard, is part of a global campaign aiming to "bring the Halloween spirit" to 17 countries. For those keeping count, the most sacred of days is now mere weeks away from making 2017 briefly tolerable.
"Touch" follows "Honey," which dropped earlier this month. Kehlani hasn't clarified whether the two songs are one-offs or part of a forthcoming project. In January, Kehlani released her debut album SweetSexySavage via Atlantic.
Kehlani's SweetSexySavage success earned her a nomination at this year's American Music Awards. Kehlani is up against Rihanna and Beyoncé for Favorite Female Artist - Soul/R&B. "AHHHH IVE NEVER BEEN NOMINATED FOR AN AMERICAN MUSIC AWARD!" Kehlani said when she learned of the nom. "And to be up there with the queens of the universe is incredible and unbelievable. I see you God! 🙏🏼♥️ Thank you everyone who made this happen. I’m beyond honored and super humbled. Ah this is so awesome 😭 [sic]"
On Monday, Kehlani joined those who actually understand U.S. history in giving the biggest possible middle finger to the bullshit that is Columbus Day. When people celebrate Columbus, Kehlani noted, they are celebrating "rape, torture, [and] the robbery of land culture."
