Kehlani goes back and forth contemplating the consequences of cheating in a relationship on Kiana Ledé’s R&B jam, “Ur Best Friend.” Both women find themselves singing about infidelity and returning to their male partners after stepping out with each other.

Kehlani also goes back and forth on “Beautiful Lies,” from Yung Bleu’s debut project, Moon Boy, which is out now. This time, the two vocalists discuss their relationship, which revolves around mistakes, apologies, and little white lies.
