SWEETSEXYSAVAGE“ – which also includes such smash singles as “Distraction,” “Advice,” “Undercover,” and “Do U Dirty” – is among the year’s most popular and critically applauded releases. Named among Complex’s “50 Most Anticipated Albums of 2017,” the album made a top 3 debut on the Billboard 200 upon its January 2017 release while also entering the “Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums” tally at #2. “Kehlani’s proper debut is by turns infectious, smooth, satisfying, and infuriating,” raved PopMatters. “This is pop music that kicks down the door and forces its way into your head through sheer force.” “SWEETSEXYSAVAGE” “establishes (Kehlani) as a multi-faceted talent,” wrote NME while Entertainment Weekly noted, “Kehlani takes the cadences and beats of classics like ‘The Boy Is Mine’ or ‘Creep,’ adds up-to-the-minute production tricks, and filters it all through the consciousness of a sensitive woman forced to grow up too soon.”

“SWEETSEXYSAVAGE” continues to gain recognition after receiving 2 nominations at this year’s BET Awards (Best Female R&B/Pop Artist & Centric Award) & Benny Boom receiving a Video Director of the Year nod for “CRZY.” The 2017 BET Awards will be held on June 25th, 2017 at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
