It’s finally here: Kehlani’s Sweet Sexy Savage World Tour! With so much anticipation after the release of her album, loyal fans have been anxiously awaiting a show from the Bay Area’s R&B princess. With two shows in Santa Cruz and a show at San Francisco’s Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, the East Bay will get their Bae-lani fix this Friday night in Berkeley. On tour for the album, Sweet Sexy Savage
, which came out earlier this year, Kehlani pours her heart and soul into the project’s seventeen tracks. She samples Aaliyah and New Edition — to name a few — and tells encounters of life and love in her lyrics. Through sassy, sultry, and seductive tones of R&B and neo-soul, the 22-year-old artist gives fans insight into her life — which happens to be remarkably relatable. Originally from Oakland, this close-to-home performance from Kehlani will surely be a special one.
Friday, June 23, 7pm, $39.50-$180, Greek Theatre, 2001 Gayley Rd, Berkeley, TheGreekTheatreBerkeley.com
