Tori Kelly Reflects on Beyoncé Sending Her Flowers After Hospitalization, Talks Growth on New EP


share close

Tori Kelly is fresh off a successful tour and a new EP Tori, and the star sat down with Billboard‘s Rania Aniftos to reflect on her past few months.

Thankfully, the 30-year-old singer says she’s “feeling really good” after she was hospitalized back in July for blood clots in her lungs and legs. “It totally caught me off guard,” she said of the experience. “It was a scary few days but, but I’m so happy that I had like a really good support system around me. I was mind blown by this all the love and support.”

One person who immediately reached out was none other than Beyoncé, who sent Kelly flowers along with a “Get Well Soon” card. “I got a lot of flowers but when Beyoncé’s flowers showed up, it’s like, oh yeah, those are obviously Beyoncé’s. They were massive,” Kelly says.

As for her new EP, Kelly says its a reflection of her growth over the past few years. “My last full length album was even before 2020. That album was a lot more sad, and I had gone through a lot of things personally, with family and all these different things. So growing from that, having a lot of healing, being in love and just wanting to express that feeling — this new wave of confidence come over me and all of that, I just put into the music and I hopefully you can hear that. I think I’m in just this new place in my life where I’m willing to have a little more fun and experiment with sounds and style.”

But she’s not done yet. “What I’ll say is there’s definitely more where this EP came from,” she said of the potential of a new album.
