Kelela comes face to face with the past on “Waitin” Renell Medrano

Kelela paints a visceral scene of a post-breakup encounter with an ex on her new song, "Waitin." Over a lively track, she slips in and out of body-roll-friendly harmonies. Kelela's tried to imagine this reunion before, but now she and her former beau are face to face. "Been waitin' for today / But I don't know what to say," she sings. They're getting side-eyes from friends, but the looks don't matter because this is a moment and there are loose ends that need to be tied.
