Kehlani is beginning to roll out new music and following her sun-kissed acoustic ballad “Honey” last week, it seems she has a lot more in store for her patient fans. On Thursday (Oct. 12), the songbird unleashed another track titled “Touch” along with a haunting, Halloween-themed accompanying visual, premiering exclusively with Billboard.
“You in my bone/ Your kisses feel like home/ With you, I never rush/ This ain’t no stupid crush,” she sings over the eerie beat. Kehlani tells her lover that while she likes to talk, she loves the physical touch of her partner.
Kehlani’s new video is a part of Budweiser’s 17-country global campaign to help bring the Halloween spirit to individuals all over the world. The visual introduces viewers to a man and a woman who are preparing to attend a Halloween carnival. The two finally meet at a street party, illuminated with hazy red lights and feel each other’s “touch” as the partygoers surrounding the couple dance until the night’s end.
The “Distraction” singer has yet to reveal whether “Touch” or “Honey” are part of a larger project but her previously released album, SweetSexySavage, earned the singer a 2017 American Music Award nomination for Favorite Female Artist Soul/R&B with fellow nominees Beyonce and Rihanna.
“HHHH IVE NEVER BEEN NOMINATED FOR AN AMERICAN MUSIC AWARD! And to be up there with the queens of the universe is incredible and unbelievable,” she posted to Instagram, following her nomination. “Thank you everyone who made this happen. I’m beyond honored and super humbled.”
