When an artist leaves a song exclusively on SoundCloud – especially when it is an R&B artist – this is usually because they had some things they needed to get out of the chest immediately. It appears with “You Know Wasup”, which Kehlani dropped late at night.
However, “You Know Wassup,” Kehlani revealed her relationship with YG. Kehlani Ashley Parish (born April 24, 1995) is an American singer, songwriter, and dancer. “You’re still my love, you’re still my heart, it’s still my date,” she sings on the track.
“Still wants to be Mrs. Jackson, yet wants to be co-captain.” YG’s real name is Keenan Dawson Ray Jackson.
Kehlani took to social media to announce the track and said it “ended an hour or two ago”. The Oakland-born artist also thanked Leon Thomas for providing the rascals and additional vocals for the production. Kehlani was quoted as saying by the IG, “Angered unmasked … just an hour or two ago”.
“Thank you @itstherascals for the production and @leonthomas for the amazing extra vocals .. You know the WasUp on my SoundCloud .. Link in the bio.”
However, “You Know WasUp,” Kehlani revealed his relationship with YG. “You’re still my love, you’re still my heart, it’s still my date,” she sings on the track. “Still wants to be Mrs. Jackson, yet wants to be co-captain.” YG’s real name is Keenan Dawson Ray Jackson.
Kehlani had earlier said “morning.”
The track also received a music video, directed by Taylor. Kehlani left him while he was back in February. It featured productions of Dom Kennedy, Ty Dolo Sign, 6Lack and Musik Soulchild.
Kehlani and YG’s blossoming relationship meant a lot to them, but until they went public with their romance, things took a wrong turn. A few weeks ago YG was caught kissing another woman outside a club in Los Angeles.
A representative for the Compton rapper released a statement saying that “he was drunk, turned away and was very sorry for putting himself in that position and hurting Kehlani.”
While it seemed that the incident would create a rift in the couple, a week later, YG commented on KG’s IG selfie “mines”, leading people to believe that he might have killed infidelity under the carpet. Kehlani’s new song confirms this. She makes several references to the “Big Bank” artist and expresses a desire to be on her side.
Not only is YG’s birth name Keenan Jackson in reference to “Mrs. Jackson”, but the “Five Year” line is one of Kehlani’s previous tweets about him. When a relationship comes after 5 years of forming “finally”, you don’t give up so easily.
