AceShowbiz - Kehlani pours her heart out in her new song called "You Know Wassup". The 24-year-old singer/songwriter addresses her boyfriend YG's cheating, talking about how "shocked" and "embarrassed" she was to find out about his infidelity on the news. "It hurts to stay just as much as it hurts to walk away," she croons.
"It's been a day, we ain't spoken / All of me feels frozen, how could you let it go like that? / How come it always goes like that? Wondering where I mess up at," she laments. "Why do I gotta beg to be chosen / Over your vices, over your liquor? / Why I gotta ask for flowers / I deserve roses, I deserve bigger / I know you're tryna change, but is it all worth the wait?"
Kehlani doesn't mention YG, whose real name is Keenon Daequan Ray Jackson, until the second verse when she sings, "Still wanna be Mrs. Jackson, still wanna be a co-captain." Although she says she hates the drama, she ultimately declares, "You're still my love, you're still my heart, that's still my date."
On Twitter, she explained to her followers that music for her was one of the best outlets to get things off her chest, "The fire thing about music is you can express the wildest and furthest parts of the emotions you're experiencing, even just the things the little back of your head voice is screaming.. or even the devil on your shoulder. flush it out and it keep it flowin."
She also assured fans that she was fine, "But naw forreal, I'm good y'all." She added, "I see people starting a hashtag about hoping my mental is ok and me possibly needing a therapist. lmao. I'm straight forreal. I'm an artist. I dive inward. glad it's doing something for you all tho. love you."
YG was recently caught on camera kissing a mystery girl outside of Poppy Night Club in Los Angeles. He later blamed it on alcohol, claiming that he "got carried away and it was very regretful for putting himself in that situation and hurting Kehlani."
