Kehlani revealed that Drake actually helped her come up with the name for her new album, "It Was Good Until It Wasn’t."
It turns out that Kehlani owes Drake huge for coming up with the unique title for her new album, It Was Good Until It Wasn't. The R&B songstress is prepping to drop the new project on Friday (May 8th), but in the meantime, she's giving credit where credit is due. During an interview for the inaugural episode of Apple Music’s new R&B Now Radio, Kehlani opened up about the process of making the album, including how she came up with the title—or, better yet, how she and Drake came up with it. On the last day of her trip to Canada where she was busy finishing off the album with Boi-1da, the singer paid a visit to the 6 God's Toronto mansion.

During the visit, Kehlani and Drake were simply having a "life conversation" and reminiscing on their old music, when the former described her personal life using the phrase. "I was just like, ‘Man, yeah, it was good until it wasn’t,'" she recalls. "And he was like, ‘Say that shit again.'”

“He was like, ‘That’s your album,'" Kehlani continues. "And I was like, ‘You might be f*cking right,’ because that just summed up everything when I try to have this really long-winded explanation to you about the project...So shout out to that guy for catching that one, 'cause that would’ve been just something that I said." It Was Good Until It Wasn't drops tonight at midnight, with features from Tory Lanez, Jhené Aiko, James Blake, Lucky Daye, and more. Kehlani's full interview on R&B Now Radio airs Friday at 11:00am EST on Apple Music.
