At only 23, the bold R&B songstress hailing from Oakland has already achieved a multitude of successes for her youthful age – from lending her honeyed yet fierce vocals to ‘Gangsta’ from Suicide Squad: The Album, to earning a Grammy nomination for her record-breaking debut album SweetSexySavage. And now, for the first time ever, she brings her renowned tour of said album to the shores of Singapore!
Despite the concert being held at the scaled-down event space at [email protected] Box, Kehlani still managed to put on a phenomenal show equivalent to a full-fledged concert at a stadium. With her infectious energy and rockin’ dance moves accompanied with the synchronised flashing lights, the vivacious singer kept her dedicated audience grooving along to hit after hit throughout the set. Albeit a short (but sweet) one-hour, she made it one heck of a night to remember as she performed almost the entire catalogue of her latest record. Fans bopped to her catchy, head-banging smashes such as ‘CRZY’ and ‘I Wanna Be’, while singing along to the more soulful, pared-down numbers like ‘Hold Me By The Heart’ and ‘Honey’.
Wrapping up the show on an emotional note, Kehlani affirmed that “if y’all got arenas out here, one day I’ll play ’em and that means when I play the biggest venue in Singapore, I’m going to remember this one. So if you’re at this show, this is history.” And when the day comes, you can be there to say “we were here first”.
