Before she gives birth to her daughter, Kehlani delivers her new single.
The Oakland songstress teams up with Ty Dolla $ign on “Nights Like This,” the first release from her upcoming mixtape. On the midtempo R&B jam, a brokenhearted Kehlani yearns for an ex lover.
“On some nights like this, shorty, I can’t help but think of us,” she sings before reconsidering. “You gon’ get my hopes high, girl / Just gon’ tell me more lies, girl.”
During an interview with Zane Lowe on Beats 1, Kehlani gushed about collaborating with Ty. “I love Ty. We’ve made songs and it just hasn’t come out because it hasn’t been the time,” she said. “This was just the perfect time for us both to finally put something out.”
