Kehlani Raises $555K For People Of Palestine, Congo And Sudan With ‘Next 2 U’ Shirts

Kehlani has raised more than $555,000 for the people of war-torn Gaza, Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo through sales of shirts promoting her latest single, “Next 2 U.”

In the video for the song, the R&B star and a group of dancers can be seen dancing in front of Palestinian flags donning keffiyehs in a show of solidarity for the Palestinian cause.

“This song is about protection, something that institutions have failed to do for the people of Palestine, Congo, and Sudan,” she wrote on Instagram.

“No one got us the way we got each other. Me and my team feel overwhelmed with gratitude for y’all showing out for this fundraiser. We’re blessed to say we supported artists in the West Bank while raising money for families in Gaza, Sudan, and Congo. We’re blessed to say that we are supported by a community standing on business together.”

She added, “We’re blessed to play a small part in a growing tide toward the truth about Palestine. We’re invincible together, and I feel ever so inspired by y’all. Thank you for showing out on the streets of D.C., with your dollars, with your labor and [organizing], [and] with your bodies blocking business as usual.”

“Next 2 U” is a song from Kehlani’s upcoming album, Crash, which is scheduled for release on June 21.

Kehlani has criticized fellow artists in the industry for keeping quiet on Israel’s military operation targeting Gaza.
