CRITIC REVIEWS

80
Billboard

You Should Be Here is more than just a one-time catharsis -- it's a way forward for a fresh voice.

80
Complex

Aside from the strength of her voice, which bubbles at top range like Lil Mo’ and is suede-soft down below like Jojo, Kehlani’s imagination for storytelling is what sets You Should Be Here apart from its current R&B-pop corollaries.

80
AllMusic
While the singer and songwriter has fashioned herself into a contemporary R&B artist comparable to the likes of Jhené Aiko and Tinashe, she has retained the charming, down-to-earth qualities she displayed with her band.

HipHopDX

Kehlani’s debut album You Should Be Here is a fine start in the young performer putting together the pieces of a career that could possibly exceed that of the one-time Fugees member.

Pitchfork
That Kehlani manages to breathe new life into these sounds and romantic musings is inspirational.
