Kehlani just debuted her new track, "Advice" on Beats 1 during Zane Lowe's program. 

The song is pop-leaning ballad that finds Kehlani pleading with herself to take her own advice. "I was just out of a really bad relationship with someone who I really thought who was going to be like the one person for me and ended up showing me so many times that they weren't," Kehlani explained, opening up to Zane about the making of this particular song. "I realized there’s a bunch of girls who are going through the same thing and they needed to hear from somebody...It was really like, a healing thing rather than us just making a song," she added. 

"Advice" is the latest offering of her forthcoming album, SweetSexySavage. "You can expect a lot of really fun vibes. It's a lot bigger I think," she said of the direction for the new album. "I'm really proud of the growth that it's taken. It's a lot of fun. It's a lot of inspiration. It's a lot of making you feel good about yourself. A lot of self-acceptance. So that's really the basis of this album."

She recently dropped a very sultry video for her previously released song, "Distraction," which followed the release of her Suicide Squad track, "Gangsta." Last month, her single "CRZY" also got a fresh remix with a Boogie Wit Da Hoodie feature. So far, we know that "Advice," "Distraction," and "Crzy" will all definitely be on the new album thanks to the pre-order on iTunes, but the rest of the 16 track titles are being kept hidden for now.
