"Hurt your feelings when I stunted like that, did I?" Oakland, California, singer-songwriter Kehlani sings on a surprise new single she dropped Wednesday night on iTunes titled "Did I." The song was available for streaming via Apple Music.
"Did I" is classic Kehlani, spitting fire verses over a rather standard snare and drum beat, along with a catchy hook. Her Facebook page announced song's release late Wednesday night:
