Jhene Aiko Chris Brown

In a surprise early release, friends and frequent collaborators Jhené Aiko and Chris Brown have reunited on wax.

Following past tracks like “Drunk Texting,” “Post to Be,” and “Wishing Remix,” the two singers join forces once again on the sultry, “Hello Ego.”

Aiko leads as she sings about personal struggles and being the family breadwinner. “I know I’m supposed to be about my money / ‘Cause that baby gotta eat when she get hungry,” she sings. “And anything my family need they get it from me / So when sh*t get ugly, I can’t stop, I won’t stop, I don’t stop.”

Breezy explores his public persona on a self-aware and candid verse. “They call me crazy / It’s okay, girl, I got issues,” he sings. “I wear my heart like my tattoos, I share my tears with tissues.” Later, he adds: “I’ve been up, down, up, up, back down / But I won’t break down.”

After the track was released online, Brown posted his excitement on Instagram. Sharing a screenshot of the new song, he wrote: “Time to f**k the summer up sis.”

Jhené Aiko Releases New Single & Video “While We’re Young”

Jhene Aiko While We're Young

Jhené Aiko is back with an easy, breezy new chune to uplift your senses for the weekend.

Soothing atmospheric synths, under light percussion, set a relaxing mood on “While We’re Young,” the songstress’ first solo release since last fall’s provocative “Maniac.”

Aiko delivers joy filled, emotional lyrics about a perfect love on the song, which is most likely dedicated to her boyfriend, rapper Big Sean.

“Baby while we’re young we should just have fun / We should just do whatever we want and tell everyone that we’re so in love with each other / That we found the one in one another,” she sings.

Continuing to address their never-ending romance Aiko adds, “It’s been another perfect day wit’cha / Wanna lay wit’cha, spend the night wit’cha / Spend my life wit’cha / All right, you know I’m down to ride.”

Premiering the song along with a music video, Jhené borrows from the movie 50 First Dates for the cinematic visuals. The singer plays a woman who suffers from short-term memory loss, and everyday has to fall in love with her boyfriend over and over again.

Aside from her highly-anticipated sophomore album, Aiko and Big Sean are working on their second release as the duo TWENTY88, which is expected to drop at some point this year.

The Atlanta rap star kicks off the visual in a sexy lounge club where he enjoys the company of some beautiful woman and a live band. The next vibe brings forth Ty Dolla, who sings his portion in a strip club kind of setting. Meanwhile, Trigga plays an alluring passenger in a drop top convertible, kicking game to a model.

“Okay, so I’ve got the ambiance just where I want it,” raps 2 Chainz. In a candle-lit room, he raps for a couple of lingerie-clad models. Then, wearing a mask, he transitions into a darker vibe, where chains fill up a dark room with curvaceous women dressed in black.

Jhené’s vibe is also quite dark, as she plays the role of this mysterious location’s boss. Counting money while getting her feet massaged, she sings about busting it wide.

As if the desert wasn’t hot enough on the first weekend of Coachella 2017, some of R&B’s sexiest starlets stormed the annual spring festival to enjoy the good vibes.

While only a few of our favorites were actually on the bill, like Kehlani and NAO, others–like Rihanna–made surprise appearances, and some were there to attend the brand events, like Solange and Tinashe.

During her Sunday night set, Kehlani rocked a lose fitting white outfit that had ‘Find Our Girls’ written on her top, and ‘Solidarity’ down the leg of her pants.

Rihanna had social media in a craze over her shimmering full body suit with low cut Gucci tank top and jean shorts on Day 2, and she was seen turning up in the crowd to Kendrick Lamar’s set on Day 3.

The Weeknd, who came out to perform with XO producer-turned-artist NAV, spent some quality time with girlfriend Selena Gomez backstage. Singers like Sevyn Streeter, SZA, Christina Milian, Justine Skye and more all were in attendance as well to take in the performances and mingle during the events.

Buzzing teen singer-songwriter Khalid caught up with Solange and Kehlani, who also spent some time with Sevyn and SZA on Day 2. Jhené Aiko and her sister Mila J were also hanging around. Jhené posted a photo on Instagram that said her body was in Coachella but her heart is at the Lightning in a Bottle Festival, which is coming up on Memorial Day Weekend.

Check out all their festive fun with the photos and video footage below.

The Chainsmokers have been consistently killing the charts, and providing anthems for clubs everywhere. Today (Apr. 7), the duo have released their debut album Memories…Do Not Open, which features a hypnotic collaboration with Jhené Aiko, called “Wake Up Alone.”

Over a pulsating beat, Aiko reflects on her success and a love affair. “Now I got cars, now I got clothes, now I got money / Now I got crowds screaming my name, saying they love me / You get real close, say I’m not alone / You understand me / But late at night when I close my eyes, the quiet scares me,” she sings.

Later, Jhené dismisses the material items, and only hopes to keep the love close. “Will you be there in the morning / Do you stay when it all goes, or will I wake up alone?” she asks.

Memories…Do Not Open is out now featuring additional appearances from Florida Georgia Line, Emily Warren, and Louane.  Jhené is currently working on her follow-up album to 2014’s Souled Out, as well as a second TWENTY88 project with Big Sean.
