Kehlani has shared the stark, black-and-white video for their new song “Little Story,” which is set to appear on their highly anticipated third studio album.
The 26-year-old artist, who recently shared a hilarious reaction to Euphoria featuring posters of them, co-directed the visual with Alexandra Thurmond, keeping things fairly minimalist with beautifully framed shots and a small choir surrounded by wilderness. It ends with a shot of Kehlani cuddling a child, although it’s not completely clear if it’s their daughter born in 2019.
“Little Story” is our second taste of Kehlani’s next album Blue Water Road, after the arrival of the video for “Altar.” Announced last year, Kehlani told Rolling Stone that the project was written in Malibu with a small collection of friends and collaborators. “We just made so much cool shit, and it was so different from what I would consider to be able to be on the deluxe because it didn’t sound anything like it,” they said. “I just was like, ‘Fuck it, this is a whole new project.’”
In a revealing interview with Byrdie magazine in December, 2021, Kehlani opened up about their decision to have their breast implants removed. “I got breast implants about four years ago because I was very much struggling with what beauty meant to me,” they said. “I remember this video of me performing went viral. People were like ‘she’s horribly built.’ So I went and got breast implants.”
