Kehlani is the second face of Clash 121.
Following turbulent phases in their personal and professional life, Kehlani is ready to unleash their most personal rhapsody yet. This time they’re operating on a higher plane; one that centres joy, healing and fulfilment above all.
A quiet but whole-hearted intensity emanates from Kehlani when they speak. They’re in recovery mode from a bout of sickness but it doesn’t prevent the Oakland native from treating our chat as a kind of remedial talk-therapy session, criss-crossing between creativity, self-care, and her deepest emotions.

Also featured in this issue is UK iconoclast Bree Runway, multi-faceted polymath Alewya; the inscrutable Deyaz; R&B force Raveena; Manchester polymath Iceboy Violet; NYC alt-pop collective MICHELLE; and UK rap hit machine Young T & Bugsey.
