This track by Kehlani is from her album You Should Be Here, an older album, yet this track on the album embraces the idea of self love and self acceptance. It is common to want to fit in to societal expectations, as Kehlani sings a young woman with curves does not feel accepted by society and can't find a man. However Kehlani reassures that if you love yourself you can.
The message of this song is truly inspiring, the idea of loving oneself is difficult today with the rise of social media and peer pressure. Kehlani expresses to be who you chose to be because it is up to you. You are in control of who you want to be. You're fears of fitting in will not allow you to shine the brightest you can, so be yourself and shine like the sun. The brightest people are those who are not afraid to be themselves no matter what anyone else says. Don't let the influence of others make you feel like you are not good enough.

About The Curator - Caylyn Downey
I am a college student in northeast America studying neuroscience, music, and studio art. I am interested in art and music therapy to help teach mindfulness. My goal is to understand how playing and listening to music and doing art can help teach you to live in the moment. In this day and age, many people are stuck in the past or predicting and worrying about the future. My goal as a music curator is to encourage people to limit their worrying and to focus on what is happening right now. I have always made playlists that many of my friends have enjoyed, it is something I enjoy to do as well because music has always been a huge part of my life. I want listeners to be able to only think about what they hear and see in the moment, this way their worries and fears will not be consuming them.
