It Was Good Until It Wasn’t

· by Anne-Sophie Rasolo

Deep beats over waves of electronic sounds and reverb to the max – if you like R&B, then Kehlani, the Californian girl in the Daisy Dukes, has you covered. The album It Was Good Until It Wasn’t isn’t just about that, offering a lot with its many guests (Masego, Jhené Aiko, James Blake, Toy Lanez and Lucky Daye). Even if she collaborates on the regular, this time, it’s with all her emotions that she delivers herself in this post-breakup album, following her split from rapper YG. The rhythms are slow and the haunting melodies express the young woman’s sense of loss. With her sweet and melancholic voice, she expunges the toxicity of her relationship and her grief, which is sublimated by James Blake’s voice, giving a sexy tone to the break-up.
