Twenty-year-old Kehlani is way up and admittedly feeling blessed. She’s so far beyond cloud 9, that she’s floating past Cloud 19, literally and figuratively speaking. The Oakland native dropped her first debut mixtape in August of 2014 and she’s all R&B fans are talking about these days. She’s effervescent and smart but ultimately grounded as a result of experiencing a number of tough times while growing up in the Bay Area. With those unstable periods behind her, the “Bright” creator is sure to continue putting her stamp on today’s R&B with a focus on bringing back the traditional vibe, she’s a fan of ’90s R&B so it only makes sense.

We ended up having store-bought vanilla cupcakes with poppy seeds for the first half of our experiment and vanilla cupcakes made from boxed cake mix for the second half because we did not have access to boxed cake mix at first and then re ran out of vanilla cupcakes with poppy seeds, so the box-made cupcakes were introduced. They were very similar in flavor and the change made no impact on our experiment. The participants were fed the food, one version and then the other for all the categories and then asked to identify which foods they thought had additives and preservatives and then asked to justify their answer. This was to ensure that they were not simply guessing the
