Atlantic Records has announced Kehlani as the newest member of its historic roster. Kehlani’s partnership includes a deal to release Kehlani’s solo records through her Tsunami Mob label. Earlier today Kehlani took to Twitter with the announcement, “Working with a label won’t change a thing about my hustle nor will it change a thing about my music. This is just the beginning.” Atlantic Records heavily supports her ongoing leadership and vision. The fiercely independent new R&B singer has recently unveiled her newest project “YOU SHOULD BE HERE,” which has seen quite a bit of success so far.
The acclaimed new R&B singer is currently at work on her major label debut, slated to arrive later this year.
Kehlani was one of the breakout stars of this year’s South By Southwest (SXSW), performing on eight Austin stages throughout the festival. Buzzfeed named her among the top 5 on its “41 SXSW 2015 Artists You Need In Your Life,” while Complex praised her for “impressing audiences with her poise and presence.” Perhaps more significantly, Kehlani was #4 on Twitter’s “Top 5 Most Mentioned Emerging Artists at SXSW” tally.
