One spin, 30 minutes, and there’s a lot to like on Kehlani’s fourth project — the newly released While We Wait that’s already the #1 R&B album on iTunes at posting time.
To say I was hooked by track 01 isn’t an understatement. Kehlani’s homage to “Ice Box” — one of my favorite R&B singles in perhaps my peak R&B listening days — was an unexpected and pleasant surprise. “Feels” was the next record that felt another level, which blends into the project’s first single that I’ve had in rotation since its release: the Ty Dolla $ign-featured “Nights Like This”.
Rounding it out: I’ve got “Butterfly” and “Love Language” as a couple of the other standouts, but all in all, While We Wait is such a cohesive listen and one to vibe to during the late nights. 👏 Kehlani!
