We now know the official title of Kehlani’s debut album.
On Saturday afternoon, the Bay Area singer sent out a couple of tweets that confirmed the name of the long-awaited project will be SWEETSEXYSAVAGE—not SSS as she originally called it.
After the news was shared, one of Kehlani’s fans questioned the title, stating the singer was “too intellectual” for it; Kehlani took the tweet as an opportunity to shed more light on the project’s inspiration and what fans can expect from the album.
There aren’t many details about SWEETSEXYSAVAGE right now; however, Kehlani will discuss her debut LP with Manny Norté on his Capital XTRA show Sunday.
The album will drop Jan. 27, and will be available for pre-order on Thursday.
SWEETSEXYSAVAGE will be Kelani’s first record release since her 2015 Grammy-nominated mixtape, You Should Be Here. Since then, the 21-year-old songstress has released a handful of singles, including the Suicide Squad soundtrack song “Gangsta,” as well as “Distraction” and “CRZY,” the latter of which was recently remixed with A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie feature.
“This [album], 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,” she said on Power 106’s The Cruz Show.
