After a handful of melodious mixtapes, Kehlani is set to release her debut album, SweetSexySavage, later this month.
We have already heard a couple of the singles from the album. ‘Advice’, ‘CRZY’ and ‘Distraction’ all dropped in the latter stages of 2016. The theme underlying many of her latest songs have centred around attempting to find strength after times of weakness, which is evident in her own life after a suicide scare early last year. Her new song though, plays on none of those themes.
Undercover is a bouncy, loose love song that reflects on liking someone so much that you don’t care what anyone else thinks about your relationship. She croons repeatedly, “I’mma love you, slidin’ under covers, undercover. They don’t wanna see it happen, but we say fuck it”.The track pays homage to Akon’s classic banger “Don’t Matter” in its opening line, and features a sweet acoustic guitar among the Charlie Heat produced instrumentals.
It’s a short, catchy tune that is likely to be on repeat for a long time.
