After attending the star-studded Met Gala on Monday night in New York City, Kehlani announced plans to drop her third solo album.
“Blue Water Road, the album coming this winter,” the two-time Grammy nominee revealed Tuesday on Instagram. Along with the note, she debuted a mysterious teaser for the album, featuring her limping alone on an desolate road wearing a bloodied bandage on her left leg.
The new record will be the follow-up to Kehlani’s second album, It Was Good Until It Wasn’t, which debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 chart in May 2020. It included the gold-certified single “Can I,” featuring Tory Lanez.
The “Nights Like This” singer has expanded into directing under her alter ego, Hyphy Williams. Earlier this summer, she directed and was featured in Kiana Lede‘s video for “Ur Best Friend.”
Kehlani performed at Jay-Z‘s Made in America in Philadelphia over the Labor Day Weekend, and she has two more festivals lined up for the fall.
She’ll hit the stage on September 24 to kick off the three-day Governors Ball in New York City. Megan Thee Stallion, A$AP Rocky, Post Malone, Young Thug and 21 Savage are among the other stars on the lineup. Kehlani also is on the bill for the Outside Lands festival, taking place October 29-31 in San Francisco, which will also feature Lizzo, Nelly, Tyler, the Creator and many more.
