Kehlani Signs With Wasserman Music for Worldwide Representation (EXCLUSIVE)

Kehlani has signed with Wasserman Music for worldwide representation.

The two-time Grammy nominated R&B singer last released an album in 2022, titled “Blue Water Road” and then embarked on a world tour that featured a series of sold-out two-night stands at New York’s Radio City Music Hall, Los Angeles’ YouTube Theater and London’s O2 Academy Brixton.

Since her debut mixtape in 2014, Kehlani has racked up over five billion streams and earned over 20 Gold and Platinum RIAA certifications. The singer earned Grammy nods for best urban contemporary album for 2015’s “You Should Be Here” and for best R&B performance for the 2016 single “Distraction.”

Kehlani started her career in music as a member of the short-lived teen group Poplyfe, which made it to fourth place on Season 6 of “America’s Got Talent.” Kehlani split from the group shortly after the show ran, but remained close with host Nick Cannon, who helped buy Kehlani an apartment in L.A. and record her first mixtape in 2014. In the years since, Kehlani has become one of the biggest names in R&B music and has toured around the world, gracing festival stages at Outside Lands, Lollapalooza South America, Tokyo’s Summer Sonic, Pharrell’s Something in the Water and J. Cole’s Dreamville Festival.

In recent years, Kehlani has also dipped her toes into acting, taking on a three-episode guest spot in 2022’s “The L Word: Generation Q” and cameoing as herself in 2023’s “Creed III,” starring Michael B. Jordan and Jonathan Majors.

Kehlani is represented worldwide by Wasserman Music agents Brent Smith and Eli Gelernter.
