Kehlani returns once again with another single from her 2020 sophomore album It Was Good Until It Wasn’t album entitled “Bad News.” Directed by Hyphy Williams (aka Kehlani herself), the R&B singer-songwriter wears an elegant wedding dress and veil that is emphasized with the vignette’s black and white visuals. She can further be seen sitting in a car, drinking, smoking, cocking a pistol, and more. “Make you wanna give all that s— up / Make you wanna leave that world behind / Make you wanna see your name on mine,” the artist sings, signaling a toxic relationship with her lyrics and her actions.

In a previous interview with Apple Music, the artists stated that she was “kind of in a relationship that has put me in a space of almost processing my parents a little bit.” She then added that her father previously passed away from a “gang-related situation” when she was young and that she “started diving into [that] headspace with the music I was making.” Kehlani’s It Was Good Until It Wasn’t serves as the follow-up to her 2017 debut SweetSexySavage.

The music video was shot similarly to her previous “quarantine style” singles like “F&MU,” “Everybody Business,” and “Toxic,” albeit with a much grander production budget. “Bad News” also marks her fifth video drop during the quarantine. She, alongside Tyler, the Creator, J Balvin, The Strokes, and more are also expected to headline 2021’s Outside Lands show.
