Video: Kehlani – Nights Like This (feat. Ty Dolla $ign)

In Blatantly Blunt Blog - Music, Hip Hop, Soul, Uncategorized by Katie Allen

Kehlani is one of those rare R&B artists where talent and visuals are consistently on point, yet she continues to surprise. She’s such a compelling and authentic person, who is unapologetically herself. Collaborating with Ty Dolla $ign, they both wrote their parts on NLT- and she overall produced the song!

On the surface it’s seemingly about a relationship where one keeps showing no appreciation and undervaluing the other, but it goes deeper than that…also it’s cool she often covers LGBTQ themes and context in her lyrics. Here we see a glimpse of her potential acting chops, as a scientist/inventor that fixes an Android (soon to be love interest). It then rapidly escalates and gets complex due to their different powers – with their capacity for increasing emotion and energy/memory transference! Ty’s verse is a welcome bonus on the track, both of them deliver on this catchy, certified banger!
