It’s been a minute since I heard from this Kenna. “Say Goodbye To Love” was my jam! I explored his album and it was…. interesting. But I can dig interesting and different.  Kenna continues to create new and fun sounds.  Chad Hugo of the almighty Neptunes rocks the production on his new single “Relations” which is super fresh.  Expect to hear this tonight on KCRW at midnight! This will def be in my set.  In the mean time peep this fun video!
