Jhene Aiko Shares New Song and Video ‘While We’re Young’

Jhene Aiko gives us more reasons to love her. The singer-songwriter has surprised fans with the release of a brand new track called “While We’re Young.”

“Baby while we’re young I think we should do something crazy / Like say ‘Fuck everyone’ / And just run away from the daily routine / Yeah you know what I mean,” she sings.

Aiko also released a visual to accompany her new track. In the video, directed by Jay Ahn, a man spends months trying to woo Aiko in different ways; however, she suffers from short-term memory loss. Determined to win Aiko’s heart, her love interest sets up a camcorder to record their daily interaction.

“While We’re Young” follows Aiko’s “Maniac,” which was released in November 2016.

Stream Janine’s Debut Album ’99’

Janine has finally released her debut album, 99.

Produced by Jono Dorr and œç¡l, the 11-track offering finds the Atlantic Records signee opting out of guest appearances. This approach allows listeners to stay focused only on her alluring voice and lyrical content. The LP includes fan favorites “Unstable,” “Never the Right Time,” “Hold On,” and “Too Late.” The latter track has an accompanying visual.

Janine shared the significance of her album title. “The name 99 stands for being one step away from being complete,” she said. “It’s also the time I started to become conscious of the music I really liked. A lot of music from the late ’90s and early 2000s ended up being a huge influence on the album.”

Janine recently celebrated her 99 album release party with her family, friends, fans and industry tastemakers in Los Angeles. She made a homemade hot sauce for everyone as giveaways.

Drew Scott Releases ‘Mindful’ Song

After sharing “Unhealthy” in January, Drew Scott makes a return with a brand new song titled “Mindful.”

Over a reggae-influenced beat, Scott reminds his woman that she is his only love. “Girl when it comes to my heart, I swear you are the only one,” he sings.

Scott explained the meaning behind “Mindful” in a statement to Rated R&B. “With technology these days, it’s easy to get distracted even when you’re in a relationship,” he said. “’Mindful’ is a reminder to cut out all the noise. Forget what everyone else is saying and focus on what makes you happy.”

“Mindful” is the third single from Scott’s upcoming project, Places I’ve Ever Been, Vol. 3, which releases on June 15. Scott plans to release a visual for “Simple” within the next couple of weeks.
