Yesterday, Kehlani reconnected with Dom Kennedy for the official video in support of their recently-released While We Wait single “Nunya.” Now, with just a few hours until the aforementioned full-length lands on streaming services, Kehlani decides to serve up one last record in support of While We Wait; this time around, she shares another one of the project’s high-profile collaborations, the 6LACK-assisted “RPG.”
“Don’t you think that we’re too old to play your game? / And we ain’t go through all of this to stay the same / But you can pick a player just so I can get my way / And I think you do this ’cause you realise I won’t wait,” Kehlani sings. “I see right through every look in your eyes / I hear right through every fairytale lie / Won’t say a word, but the stories you write / They tell me enough.”
“I don’t wanna make you think / That I’m sayin’ things ’cause you prompted me / Been working with a lag, a f*cked up past / I want you to be proud of me / It seems like day one, you was fond of me / Same shit I felt for you / Then I fell for you, fell in love / It’s embarrassing to tell the truth,” 6LACK adds for his section on “RPG. “But now it’s to the point where my love is up for debating / Maybe it’s too late to say / I think love is on you, think love is spoken / And we both comin’ from the same place / For every song that I write is a note to self / Note to God, note to you / Don’t count me out / Besides this and my daughter, I only got love for you.”
You can stream Kehlani and 6LACK’s new collaborative cut “RPG” below, and check back in a few hours for a complete stream of Kehlani’s While We Wait album.
