Kehlani - Jealous (f. Lexii Alijai)

There are two things you can count on whenever Kehlani collaborates with Jahaan Sweet – some type of aural seduction on the singer’s part, and some type of memorable, slow-burning instrumental from her trusty producer.

That formula stays true on “Jealous,” the newest single from Kehlani’s upcoming You Should Be Here LP, and the second following her “Down For You” collab with BJ The Chicago Kid. With Sweet seemingly taking cues from Timbaland’s production on “One in a Million,” the beat for “Jealous” seems to tiptoe along, pensive yet smoldering. Kehlani is right at home on it, crooning about fake people and the desire to put on an act and make your lover act a certain childish way. 17-year-old Minnesota emcee Lexii Alajai turns in a breakout feature as well, her delivery secondary only to her resistance to the bullsh*t (“You steady tryna hide your phone/ You know that sh*t will always end up in an argument”).
