Over the last year, Kalin White has branched out from being recognized as one-half of the duo Kalin and Myles to finding his own footing as a solo act. He's planning to take that to the next level in 2018, as White recently joined Above Ground management—where Kehlani also calls home—and fans get a taste of what's to come with "Thought You Knew," which arrives just a few hours before his 23rd birthday.

"Thought You Knew," which White co-wrote with collaborator Hovey Benjamin, is a smooth performance that should keep fans satisfied while he maps out the rest of his year.

Along with his new song, White shared a message to his fans about what he has in store for. "To my fans... Thank you for not giving up on me. New start for myself. Linked with my new team abvgrnd and I can't wait to real life drop this music and tour for you, perform for you, sing to you. Let's have some fun. Ladies are you ready? My birthday today, this my Jordan year. lets goo!"
