Kehlani Has A Message to Her Haters with New Song, “24/7”

6views

We hear you, girl.

I was super disappointed with the entire Internet to see R&B artist Kehlani being bullied after a PartyNextDoor, in the most sucka move of all time, posted on Instagram and insinuated that she was cheating on then-boyfriend Kyrie Irving. Kehlani was called “slut, “thot,” and every other name in the book used for women who do exactly what men do all the time. My disappointment only continued when I saw that Kehlani apparently attempted suicide over the ordeal. I had hoped she would just come out with some bomb music since her name was trending, but alas, from the mental state we heard her sing about in You Should Be Here, she seemed as if she couldn’t take anymore.

I get it. I think we all get it. Sometimes life just gets a little ridiculous, even if you’re famous, even if you have money, even if you have a ton of fans. In an article previously posted on our site, we mentioned how no one truly knows a person’s mental state. Kehlani’s new song, “24/7” alludes to that exact idea. She says, in the hook, that she doesn’t know “nobody who feels like they’re somebody 24/7,” meaning people – no matter how rich, famous, or successful – are allowed to get down and in their feelings. The song definitely alludes to her issues with Chris Brown who was extremely critical and vocal about Kehlani’s apparent suicide attempt, essentially stating that it was cowardly when she should have just faced the music (no pun intended).

Musically, the song is pretty basic, but the music is not the message in this track. Kehlani has addressed issues on how to treat people in her last mixtape, and it seems as if she’s doing it again – this time, in defense of herself.

Hope Carter
Hailing from "Screwston," Texas, Hope has been immersed in music since birth, first being exposed to Motown by her parents, then discovering her love for all genres as she trained as a dancer. Her unique set of life experiences growing up in Houston's Historic Third Ward as a lower middle class child, attending schools in more affluent neighborhoods, all the while attending an international church in which she was very involved, created her open-minded approach to music and art. Hope is very socially conscious, and prefers to take songs as a whole - both lyrically and sonically - before making her final judgment on their quality. As a dancer, she is inclined to be interested to anything she can move to, but her Dirty South roots give her room to appreciate a more laidback, chill (screwed) vibe. Her taste in music continues to change as she discovers new artists and as genres evolve.
