Jhene Aiko Takes an Emotional ‘Trip’ on Her New Album

Jhene Aiko surprises fans with an unannounced release of her sophomore album, Trip. The album is packed with 22 tracks and includes guest appearances from Brandy, Mali Music, Big Sean and Kurupt. It also features a song from TWENTY88, which is her duo with Big Sean.

Aiko takes her fans on a musical journey as she explores a mix of emotions such as love, pain, depression, and happiness.

In an interview with Billboard, Aiko revealed what she hopes her fans take away from the album.

“I hope that they really, really dive into it and just immerse themselves in it,” she said. “It is a real trip and I feel like I definitely have a lot of fans that have been following me since I was younger who are my age now or even older and they really understand the concept of why, and they’ve been through losing someone and they’ve been through relationships that have been unpredictable and they have been through these things.”

In addition to her new album, Aiko also has released an accompanying short film (can be watched below) and poetry book.

Ruff Endz Returns with New Album ‘Soul Brothers’

It’s been eight years since Ruff Endz — Dante Jordan and David Chance — released an album, but the duo returns with a brand new project titled Soul Brothers. The Baltimore natives quietly released the album on January 12 via Chance Music Group.

“This album is unique in the sense of being a project that represents David and Dante,” Chance told RnB Junkie. “This is a project that was birthed out of us being in the studio and our creation.”

Jordan added, “It’s positive music — something you can play anywhere and around any crowd…and not having to worry about the words or subject matter getting too racy.”

Soul Brothers is the follow-up to Ruff Endz’ third album, The Final Chapter (2008), which was promoted as their last project.

Ruff Endz is namely known for their debut single, “No More” (2000), which peaked at No. 5 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. Their 2002 single “Someone to Love You” reached No. 49 on the Hot 100.

Jhené Aiko Releases Video for ‘Sativa’ featuring Rae Sremmurd

Jhené Aiko has premiered a futuristic visual for “Sativa,” which features Rae Sremmurd.

The EYES-directed clip begins with Aiko in a lab being programmed and created by the rap duo, before entering the real world.

The original version of “Sativa” — which appears on Aiko’s latest album, Trip — features Swa Lee of Rae Sremmurd; the video includes an updated verse with Slim Jxmmi.

“It’s a Fisticuffs track and they know sativa is my favorite,” Aiko told NPR last year. “They named the track ‘Sativa,’ so I knew no matter what I talked about on this song I wanted to keep the name, because it definitely feels like sativa. I had this melody for almost two years now and I just couldn’t put it into words. Everyone, even No I.D., was like, ‘Why don’t you just put it on your album like that, so people can just feel what you’re saying.’ Then, at the very last minute, Amaire, who produces on the album, said, ‘We should call Swae Lee.’ And I’m a fan. So we had a session, he came through and he came through. That inspired me and I came up with new verses.”
