Jhene Aiko

The song exudes a chill out vibe that has once again made us fall for her smooth vocals, as heard in the hit single “The Worst”. Although the tune bears a striking resemblance to “The Worst”, the mood and the lyrics came out truly unique and outstanding that has gotten us immediately hooked onto the song.


Clearly, the primary focus of the song is the lyrics as she said that she “would consider herself a lyricist before anything” during an exclusive interview with Vogue.

Jhene Aiko to Love & Die

Jhené Aiko broke into the mainstream market when she performed “From Time” alongside Drake. Since then, her musical career continued to sail! Her album features collaborations with various hip hop artistes including R&B golden child Miguel and hip-hop recording artiste Kendrick Lamar. Due to her soulful music, Malaysian born R&B singer Nadhira has also expressed her desire in collaborating with Aiko. She told us herself in this exclusive interview!

After releasing her freshman EP “Sail Out” in 2013, her latest studio album “Souled Out” is expected to drop in September this year. If everything goes well, the songbird will also go on a 5-city tour with The Weeknd as well.
