Kehlani‘s self-shot “Toxic” music video, dubbed (Quarantine Style) by the GRAMMY nominated singer-songwriter was a hazy, emotive and barely sober example of how to live your best life during the current period of self-isolation. Now she’s back with another new single titled “Everybody Business” which takes aim at the internet users spamming her comments sections, spreading rumors about her love life.
“Everybody Business” is the first self-produced effort from Kehlani as she created the instrumental then tapped producers Go Grizzly and Loshendrix to help finalize the acoustic-heavy trap-infused offering. The music video was shot by ‘Hyphy Williams’ during the current coronavirus pandemic, with Kehlani keeping things as bare-bones as possible, walking around her yard with headphones on and a microphone in-hand. Screenshots of
tabloids and mean tweets sporadically pop-up on the screen with headlines like, “Kehlani faces criticism for portrayal of sexual identity” and “Kehlani faces backlash after tell-all song is released.”
This is now the fourth song in an emotional series of singles this year following her “Konclusions” Valentine’s Day-themed track with YG then the immediate breakup anthem “Valentine’s Day (Shameful)” three days later. “Everybody Business” smoothly confronts the internet hate and readjusts the conversation to focus on the fact that when the singer falls in love, she puts it all out there in the open.
“I ain’t never been a half-ass lover/ Rather lay out on the train tracks for ya,” she sings. Watch her music video above and stream the single below. In more music news, both New York City and Los Angeles Mayors don’t expect concerts to return until 2021.
