Jhené Aiko is back in full effect. The Grammy-nominated serenader has dropped her long-awaited third studio album Chilombo.
Aptly titled after Aiko’s birth name, Chilombo is a dive into the California native’s journey of self-discovery. With the help of some high-profile features from Big Sean, Future, Miguel, H.E.R. and more, Aiko is going through the motions of putting herself first.
“Born Tired,” a soon-to-be fan favorite, discusses the fight to keep going when you are down and out. “‘Cause look how far you have come / and look at all you have been doing / look at who you have become / Baby, you gotta keep going,” Aiko croons on the song.
“I’m so excited to share these moments that have come and gone,” Aiko shared in a Twitter post just before the album dropped. “The most fertile lands were built from the fires of volcanoes.”
