On Thursday, the hip-hop couple released their new single “Konclusions,” in which YG professes his love for the singer while boasting about their sex lives.
“Konclusions” arrives more than five months after YG and Kehlani publicly confirmed their relationship. Toward the end of 2019, however, the couple hit a rough patch and seemingly called it quits after YG was hit with cheating allegations.
“I am single. and focused,” Kehlani wrote in a since-deleted December tweet.
Fast-forward to early February, when YG unveiled his new wrist tattoo dedicated to Kehlani. The SweetSexySavage artist shared a photo of the ink in an Instagram story, essentially confirming they were working things out. And fans couldn’t have been any happier.
Justin Bieber still doesn’t really get the credit he’s earned. The string of celebrity relationships, the bad-boy behavior, the tattoos and ever-evolving hair styles and hues — all these things have had a tendency to distract from the obvious, which is: That boy can sing. He’s a blue-eyed soul stirrer who somehow always has avoided sounding like a white guy trying to pass for black. His R&B tendencies are natural and unforced and, most importantly, never gratuitously flashy. And he’s never sounded better than he does on “Changes,” his fifth studio album.
He’s never felt better, either, from all indications. “Changes” is the sound of a reformed romantic closing the blinds to shut out the world, then spending a long weekend in bed with the object of his affection, coming up with different ways to say “You complete me.” And therein lie its limitations: For as many ways as there are to say “You complete me,” Bieber keeps skimming their surface. His voice and the production are flawless, and his soul is in the right place — but there’s something airless about the album, too, like he could have left the window open a crack to let some sunshine in. For a Valentine’s Day album about love in bloom, it sounds surprisingly serious and dark, with a one-track-mind.
In the decade since Bieber burst onto the scene, the Canadian singer-songwriter has shown demonstrable growth as both a vocalist and a recording artist, never releasing the same album twice. Over the course of five studio sets, including the 2011 holiday collection “Under the Mistletoe,” each new one has sounded entirely different from the one that preceded it. That’s partly because Bieber always has been so in step with the ever-changing pop times that each release has become a sort of sonic time capsule of the era in which it was created.

Kanye West, Drake, and Justin Bieber will not attend the 2017 Grammy Awards, according to TMZ. Although each artist received multiple nominations, they all reportedly agree that the Grammys do not represent young artists or black artists. TMZ reports that Bieber and Drake don’t find the awards “relevant or representative, especially when it comes to young singers.” A source told TMZ that West will sit out because “he’s received 21 Grammys, but when he was head-to-head against a white singer, he never won.” Pitchfork has reached out to each artist’s respective representatives, as well as Grammy reps.
