Kehlani – How That Taste

The Bay Area native got her start as a dancer — both ballet and modern — and attended Oakland School for the Arts. After an unfortunate knee injury leaving her unable to dance she transferred into vocal training and the rest is history. She began her journey into the music business when she joined Poplyfe in the 8th grade and hasn’t looked back since — even appearing on America’s Got Talent with the band. Influenced by Lauryn Hill, Michael Jackson, India Arie, Stever Wonder and Musiq Soul Child — she has an old soul while adding her own youthful twist to classic sounds. The best way she can describe her music is “feel good music” with R&B/Soul undertones. At only 19 years old, she has shared stages with Tony! Toni! Toné!, Stevie Wonder, Jamie Foxx, Sheila E, Lenny Williams at many historic venues including Caesars Palace, The Fox Theater, The Paramount and Yoshi’s

Artists always want to address their fans, but when they do so, the haters are always thrown in the mix too. The love and the hate have to go hand in hand right? Kehlani does just that for “How That Taste,” a bitter reality of what she’s gone through to get to this point in life, as she urges those who support her to touch the sky with her (as depicted in the artwork).

“It’s a Tsunami Mob anthem, ready to wake people up and ask them how that shit taste,” Kehlani says.

Kehlani – How That Taste Lyrics:
They didn’t want me then, they want me now
Did not want me to win, but now they’re proud
Now they’re payin’ to get in, they in the crowd
Tell me how’s it feel now? Tell me, how’s it feel now?
Bein’ low, yeah you a snake
You puttin’ on a show, that Ricki Lake
Hey man I don’t trip, my life’s great
But swallow that pride, tell me how that shit taste

Tell me how shit taste
Tell me how that shit taste
Tell me how that shit taste
Bitch tell me how that

Always crowdin’ it cause they solvin’ me
In the mall goin’ up cause they go hard for me
Yeah the only way is up, y’all gon’ ball with me
Man the whole damn fam gon’ touch the sky with me
Touch the sky with me, touch the sky with me
Man the whole damn fam gon’ touch the sky with me
Touch the sky with me, touch the sky with me
Man the whole damn fam gon’ touch the sky with me

They askin’ for the verse, a hundred racks
If you ain’t talkin’ money, then run it back
My pockets too deep for ’em not to be stacked
Yeah you lookin’ like distraction, now fall back
Bitch your music’s been weak, your fashion wack
Was talkin’ out your neck, not even facts
I’m way too real to stoop low
I’m too busy on the road, I’m too busy bookin’ shows
Yeah you know how that shit taste

Tell me how shit taste
Tell me how that shit taste
Tell me how that shit taste
Bitch tell me how that

Always crowdin’ it cause they solvin’ me
In the mall goin’ up cause they go hard for me
Yeah the only way is up, y’all gon’ ball with me
Man the whole damn fam gon’ touch the sky with me
Touch the sky with me, touch the sky with me
Man the whole damn fam gon’ touch the sky with me
Touch the sky with me, touch the sky with me
Man the whole damn fam gon’ touch the sky with me.
