Kehlani celebrates sex workers in video for “Can I”

The singer also plans to release a version of the song without Tory Lanez’s verse.

Kehlani has dropped another “quarantine style” music video from It Was Good Until it Wasn’t, this time for “Can I.”

The R&B star virtually interacts with several camgirls in the NSFW clip, which she described on Twitter as an “ode to sex work” that “honor[s] sex workers” and “uplift[s] their movement.” The video ends with a description of sex work by writer and organizer Da’Shaun Harrison.

Tory Lanez is also featured on “Can I,” although he does not appear in the clip. On Twitter, Kehlani announced that she will release a version of the song without Lanez’s verse for the deluxe version of It Was Good Until it Wasn’t.

“Full transparency cuz i believe in that with my following, his verse is still on the song, the video is solo. new verse on the deluxe,” she wrote.


This announcement comes amid speculation on Lanez’s involvement in the recent shooting of Megan Thee Stallion, who sustained the injuries after attending a party with Lanez in Hollywood Hills. Lanez was arrested on a gun charge and later released on bail. In her first statement about the incident, Megan said she is “expected to make a full recovery,” and earlier this week took to Instagram Live to share an emotional update on her health. The identity of her shooter has not been confirmed.

Kehlani’s video for “Can I” follows previously released visuals for “Toxic,” “Everybody Business,” “F&MU,” “Open (Passionate)” and “Bad News.” Watch her latest clip here:
