Just in case you weren’t aware, ever since 2009, Kehlani has released one studio album, two mixtapes and countless singles. Last night, she took to social media to announce that her new mixtape is finished. The announcement comes shortly after the singer’s release of her app called Flora, an app directed towards healthy living habits as well as recent news of her pregnancy.
Kelanhi may have a baby on the way but that’s not keeping this 23 year old woman away from music. Along with her recent mixtape announcement Kehlani has had a string of releases from this past year including her collaboration with Cardi B, “Ring,” her collaboration with KYLE, “Playingwitme,” her collaboration with Charlie Puth, “Done For Me,” as well as a new and extended version of her collaboration with Eminem, “Nowhere Fast.” Kehlani’s new mixtape will be her third commercial mixtape release after ‘Cloud 19‘ and ‘You Should Be Here.’
Motherhood has never been embraced in such a way that Kehlani has. Now, with brand new mixtape on the way fans can only expect a breath of fresh air from the burgeoning R&B artist.

i’ve always been very open with you all about my personal adventures & accomplishments… this was the HARDEST to hide. if you know me, you know i’ve dreamt about motherhood since i was very young. when asked what my goals are, it’s always the idea of a big healthy happy family & whatever comes along is a plus . i am so honored to be given this gift by spirit, creator, and an amazing partner whom i trust with my body and life. i knew sharing something so personal and precious could bring stress into my world but there isn’t a word anyone would say my way that could take away from this. dearest little girl, i am so proud to be your mommy. i am so proud to have received you. i cannot wait to meet you, i know you will be 50,000 times more special than i can even imagine at this moment. i am happy to document this journey and feel the freedom any pregnant person should. i’m looking forward to sharing my little world with you all… my partnership with my very best friend and lover, our journey of conception, my choice for a natural home birth with my AMAZING midwives at @parteramidwifery and eventually… the little pumpkin! i am now a HOME. 4 months and counting with you, angel of mine.

(long post warning) I was very blessed to find true friendship/family in this alluring scorpio sister sign of mine with a very similar life story when i was maybe 12 years old. we didn’t connect as family when i was that young but i always admired her very euphoric energy when she stepped into any room and the power even just her face held, almost too overwhelming to stare at for long because she just OOZES light & power. fast forward to adulthood, she has became a sister to me. now… fast forward to right now….i am SO BLESSED AND HONORED to call this queen my midwife. since the moment i was exposed to natural birth (by her) years ago, i knew she would be the one to take this step with when the time came. i trust her with my life, and most importantly the life of my child. i haven’t had a moment of worry or fear, and i don’t plan to. she is so patient, kind, and her undeniable ability to nurture all involved in birth is truly one of a kind. thank you so much for all that you are to me, to the community of people you’ve aided through birth & beyond, and simply for the way you show up in this world and hold space for yourself while holding space for us all. if you are pregnant, planning pregnancy -etc- and don’t know about your resources beyond hospitals… beyond fear… if you are unaware of your ability to lead and be in charge of your birth… please look into natural home birth & there is an entire community of amazing ethereal midwives and doulas out there ready to offer you what you DESERVE in the most magikal, radical, and ceremonious experience of your life. if you are looking to enter that space as a practitioner, Sumi and @parteramidwifery offer training and introduction into what i believe is possibly the most necessary and breathtaking “careers” known to earth. i’m emotional and passionate about this because it is an emotional and passionate space. again, i love you Sumi. Happy Birthday and thank you from all of us. isn’t she BEAUTIFUL y’all? 😩 @sumistouch @sumistouch
