From her angelic vocals to her creativity, R&B songbird Jhene Aiko has much to offer the world. She has taken the hearts of many R&B music lovers and has proven herself to be one of the best in the game. In celebration of her birthday (March 16), we have rounded up the top five reasons we love the R&B songbird.
Her music/lyricism can resonate with anyone.
Jhene Aiko has music that can relate to anyone, especially her music about love. Not only that, Jhene is a clever lyricist and when she writes and sings she makes you feel it. Her ability with word play is undeniable. Her music is known to make you think and rearrange your life, mindset and spirit. Her music is inspirational, eye-opening and some of her songs aren’t even what they seem at first to the untrained ear. For example, in her song “Blue Dream” one would think she is singing about a guy but that’s not the case; she’s actually singing to the weed about the weed.
Here are a few lyrics from Jhene that we love:
“If home is where the heart is, I’m homeless cause I’m heartless” – “Snapped”
“If every thing was dipped in gold / Then baby it would never grow /Everything sweet ain’t sugar-coated” – “Stay Ready (What A Life)” feat. Kendrick Lamar
“If I never have you then I can never lose you” – “You Vs. Them”
“Similar ways, similar game, starting to feel the similar pain / Are you sure we haven’t met before? / I know ya face, I know ya name But I don’t know you? / Isn’t that crazy? isn’t that crazy? I think we may be in a different book / On a different page / You said you are different / But you’re the same Stranger.” – “Stranger”
