Did you know contemporary R&B songstress Kehlani dreamed of dancing her way to The Juilliard School, or that she couch surfed in 2012 and 2013 to stay afloat?
Kehlani’s music video for “CRZY” is a stark contrast to the hit “Gangsta” that put her on mainstream media’s map. The Suicide Squad anthem oozes sensuality and vulnerability. Kehlani lies seductively with her ultrafeminine hair extensions perfectly arranged across a sea of broken glass while waiting for her white night (or should I say dark knight)?
While watching “CRZY,” I couldn’t stop thinking about the visuals for 1998’s “Are You That Somebody” by Aaliyah. The similarities are incredible, from the sassy synchronized dancing to the bikini top with baggy pants ensemble.
Kehlani’s “CRZY” is a fun-loving music video that strikes me as a blast from the past – complete with girl power and selfies. However, get it straight; Kehlani will Rae Sremmurd your ass with her bad bitch beats and rap fillers. SWERVE.
