Later, after its release, it found a spot in the 39th position of the Hot R&B and Hip Hop Charts. He also collaborated with the famous American Music Group Cinematic for the music video for Wrong.
Reportedly, Cinematic CEO and producer Jonny Snipes and music producer 11VN approached Kel for music collaboration. He signed a deal with them and worked with them on several projects. In June 2019, Kel talked about his experience working with Jonny Snipes and 11VN at Cinematic in an interview with The KnockTurnal. When asked by the journalist about how his experience was, he said,
“It’s good, it's like a family vibe. I always got a say in what I do, and it’s always up-tempo, it’s always a happy vibe and they love to work and I love to work too, so it’s just matching vibes.”
To date, Kel has released two studio albums. He launched his first full album, Mixed Emotions, in November 2019 and later dropped his second album L.O.V.E in October 2020. His first album’s song 'Wrong' received a Platinum Certification by RIAA (Recording Industry Association by America). Similarly, his songs 'BRB' and 'Pull Up,' also from his first album, earned a Gold Certification from RIAA.
L.O.V.E, aka Loss of Valuable Emotions, is the second and the latest album by young R&B artist Luh Kel. He first released this 4-track project on 23 October 2020. The album included songs 'How to Love,' 'Want You,' 'Real,' and 'Y.O.U.'
Rated R&B interviewed Kel about his latest album around a month after its release in November 2020. In the interview, he talked about the emotions and inspirations behind the songs in the album. His work is based on his past experience of losing love and the things he has gone through. He said, “I’ve been through it a long time ago, so I’m still speaking about things that I used to go through.’
Less than a month after dropping his second album L.O.V.E, Kel released its deluxe version with four new tracks. One of those tracks included his biggest budget music video, 'Feen,' featuring the American rapper Trippie Redd. He talked with Uproxx in November 2020 about getting Trippie Redd in for the project. He said,
“I got Trippie Redd on it. I felt like it matched his vibe, so we sent him the song. He got on it. Sent it back and we started shooting the video. This is my biggest budget video.”
