Kehlani is already making boss moves and she hasn’t even dropped her first official album yet. Fresh from releasing her You Should Be Here mixtape, the 20-year-old has signed a deal with Atlantic Records to bring her newly launched Tsunami Mob imprint to the label.


“I’m happy to share that I've already started working on my next project that I hope to have out later this year,” she wrote on Instagram. “Working with a label won't change a thing about my hustle nor will it change a thing about my music. I'm grateful to be in a good place and am excited to work with a great team who support my vision for myself and my music 100%. This is just the beginning. BUILDING AN EMPIRE AT 20 YEARS OLD, WAYYYYY UP ... I feel blessed.”

K made the announcement on Instagram earlier today while thanking fans for pushing her mixtape to the No. 2 spot on the R&B charts.
