It’s thrilling to witness Oakland’s Kehlani progression. She hit the scene as a teenager with "ANTISUMMERLUV" in 2013, solidified her place in R&B playlists with "Gangsta", and left us hopeful for her future from her debut album, SweetSexySavage. Her dulcet voice always sets a mood and this mixtape While We Wait, is no exception. Kehlani’s lyrics have been consistently deep for her age but this time the music catches up in maturity.The first few tracks point to a moony songwriter but the height of the mixtape appears as a euphonic and danceable trifecta smack-dab in the middle of While We Wait’s nine tracks. "Morning Glory" is a delicious 90s-era TLC jam with a springy beat and cheeky wordplay. "Feels," with its earworm hook, can easily turn into a summer jam sing-a-long ready for repetitive radio play a la Drake's "In My Feelings." "Some Nights Like This" features Ty Dolla $ign who provides the mixtape's only complimentary duet.Meanwhile, "Nunya" has hit potential but falls short due to Dom Kennedy’s distractingly weak rap. "Butterfly" is the antithesis of a banger, but it also mirrors Kehlani’s musical persona: one part bold and produced, the other muffled and vulnerable like a demo.Kehlani’s While We Wait has some great ideas. It contains raw elements like a bedroom recording, yet also owns some infectious beats and slick production. She is introspective while progressive with her interpretation of R&B. Kehlani strengthens her signature sound on this mixtape, and generates excitement for a sophomore album. © Celesté Peterson / Qobuz

When Kehlani was fronting the Oakland band Poplyfe during the sixth season of America's Got Talent, judge Piers Morgan informed the young singer, "I don't think you need the group." Four years later, Kehlani had two independent solo releases to her credit: the eight-track Cloud19 (2014) and this album-length affair. A week after the latter was made available, major-label Atlantic announced its signing of Kehlani, one of the more promising artists of the mid-2010s. While the singer and songwriter has fashioned herself into a contemporary R&B artist comparable to the likes of Jhené Aiko and Tinashe, she has retained the charming, down-to-earth qualities she displayed with her band. She's clearly making her own way, unafraid to knock suitors down a couple pegs ("How That Taste"), allowing her vulnerability to shine through ("You Should Be Here"), and affirming her individuality; in the "take me as I am" highlight "Unconditional," she offers "And I'd rather lace my sneakers up, 'cause high heels ain't my thing." The Chance the Rapper appearance is bound to get more attention than any of the other collaborations, but "Down for You," a duet with BJ the Chicago Kid, is deeper and more representative of Kehlani's refreshing approach to contemporary R&B for young adults. © Andy Kellman /TiVo
