Since her 2014 mixtape, Cloud 9, Kehlani has been an artist to watch. But last year, the Bay Area singer took her buzz to a new level with the release of You Should Be Here, which earned her a Grammy nomination. She's a special talent, making the kind of personal music that speaks to her fans as much as it functions as a therapeutic release for her. She went through a tough year, one shaped by a string of personal hardships (she was hospitalized for an apparent suicide attempt back in March), so I'm interested in how those experiences affected or influenced her debut, SweetSexySavage, out at the end of this month. By the sounds of singles like "Advice," "Distraction," and the Dev Hynes-favorite "Undercover," we're in for a great album. —Karizza Sanchez
