Kali Uchis:
It’s a spiritual language. It’s not about English or Spanish. It’s not about genre. It’s just really about expressing yourself as freely as you can. Hi, my name is Kali Uchis, and this is Billboard News

Lyndsey Havens:
Hey, I’m Lyndsey Havens here for Billboard News. And we’re here with a Grammy Award-winning artist Kali Uchis.

So we have two drops to talk about here and congratulations!

Kali Uchis:
Thank you.

Lyndsey Havens:
So excited for you. How have you been keeping this a secret? What’s been the hardest part of that?

Kali Uchis:
I had to do some shows and I was on a Times list, I had to do a red carpet. That was really hard.

Lyndsey Havens:
And then when the time does come, what are you most excited for about being a mom?

Kali Uchis:
I don’t know. There’s so much to be excited for, honestly. So yeah, it’s hard to say just one thing.

Lyndsey Havens:
You won’t know until it happens.

Kali Uchis:
Yeah, exactly.

Lyndsey Havens:
Your fourth album, Orquídeas, is now out. Congratulations. It’s all about the theme of the orchids that inspired this. How did you sort of land on that? And why was that flower like the proper embodiment?

Kali Uchis:
Yeah, I feel like the flower for me, it always symbolizes timelessness, femininity, luxury, has an eerie mystical quality about it as well. And it’s also the national flower of Colombia. So for me it all tied in, and then I didn’t find out that I was pregnant until later in my rollout, but actually it’s also the flower of fertility. So it actually all came together perfectly.
