Producing for Kehlani

In this tutorial, we produce a beat for an R&B singer like Kehlani. Having listened to her album, “It Was Good Until It Wasn’t”, all week, I felt inspired.

The beat starts with a popular chord progression used in “Say My Name”, produced by Dark Child (Rodney Jerkins); vi – IV – ii – V – ♯V. This chord progression instantly transports us back to the late 90s, early 00s and thus served as a great foundation.
