Jhené Aiko Covers ‘Status’ Magazine; Talks Music, Being in Control & More


Jhené Aiko is baring it all. The R&B songstress graces the cover of the October 2016 issue of Status Magazine, where she shows off some fresh looks and opens up about her image, music, animal protection, body positivity, and healthy lifestyle.

Don’t expect to get much personal life gossip from Jhené though, as usual; she lets her music handle that.

“More sides of me will be revealed the longer I make music. That’s where I like to express every part of me,” she tells Status.

She also states, “I’m in control of my own thoughts, my own happiness, and my own art.”

She did share a few tidbits though: “I love hikes, and I love to write outside. I always feel like you get energy from all the natural elements like the sun, the wind, and the ocean. It just really inspires me because it reminds me that I’m just one little part of this huge world.”

Check out some excerpts and more photos from the fashionable spread below.

New Music: DJ Drama feat. Fabolous, Trey Songz, Jhené Aiko, Tory Lanez & Chris Brown – Wishing (Remix)


DJ Drama enlisted an army of R&B superstars and then dropped a bomb on us.

His single, “Wishing,” was already a fan favorite thanks to Chris Brown‘s singing on the catchy chorus, but now the song has received a full R&B remix, with some help from Fabolous. The song kicks off with Fab, who seduces his girl and tells her life would definitely be better if she’ll just “stop bein’ friendly to the f*ckboys.” Then enters Trey Songz who delivers the verse we expect to come from Trigga. He sings, “I get it wet like a super soaker gun (I like it) / Now she lookin’ for me like I’m on the run” and then adds “I got the juice, she let it splash on me (nasty) / Know I’m the truth, ain’t gotta ask ’bout me.”

The chorus gets a nice update as Trey and Chris harmonize over the beat telling a girl that they’ll have her “wishing” that they were her man. Jhené Aiko‘s verse is third and she gives us the only female perspective on the track. “Well I’ll be your savior / From all of your exes that you’ve been regrettin’ / You shouldn’t be sweatin’ them / I can do you better,” she sings. And lastly is the youngin’, Tory Lanez, who points out that he’s not just anybody, “I cannot feel her / I know my ex bitch is tryna front, but don’t / No, I’m not Tiller.”

This remix just might be your new favorite song. Check out the track below.

Video: Gallant feat. Jhené Aiko – Skipping Stones


Well look what we have here…

Gallant and Jhené Aiko have finally blessed us with a video for their super smooth collaboration “Skipping Stones,” off the priors acclaimed debut album Ology.

Even though the combination of Gallant’s silky falsetto and Jhené’s airy voice make for a relaxing sonic experience, the visual to match their musical duet is anything but that. In the video our favorite ‘Sailing Soul’ looks to seek some revenge on Gallant. The first image we see is Gallant beaten, bruised and tied up, in what looks like the trunk of a car. As the camera pans out for the viewer to see what’s really going on, we see Jhené and immediately know that this isn’t a good situation at all.

Created all in one shot, Gallant told Complex, “I’m really into the whole one shot thing. Even just the way that I write, I really like living into a moment. Digging into all the subtext that that moment kind of carries.”

The video, which was directed by the American Millennial and sponsored by Red Bull Sound Select, shows “in a very subtly complex way, kind of just illustrate exactly all of the fiery emotions that are coming through lyrically in the song from both perspectives.”

New Music: Jhené Aiko – New Balance


Starting the week off with new music from Jhené Aiko is a welcomed treat!

While the singer-songwriter made internet headlines at the end of last week for filing for divorce from producer Dot da Genius–whom some fans didn’t even know that they were briefly married–the attention switches back to the songstress soothing talents.

Aptly titled “New Balance,” the record is Jhené’s first release since collaborating with Big Sean on the duo TWENTY88.  Soft piano keys lay the vibe for the subtle song about love and relationships. Aiko sings out to a certain someone who has changed her own energy and soul searching.

“It hit me like a tidal wave / Knew that I was in love with you right away / To know my days and the brighter days / Even when people say what we do is not ok,” she sings. “According to what the people say, who cares what other people say / Man fuck what other people say / I’ma ride for you baby if you ‘gon ride for me.”

Jhené is clearing in a good place and she is sharing those positive feelings, while also addressing the realities of relationships in general. “Some of us do deserve it / A love that is true and perfect / Some of us been through it all before / Some of us do still come back for more,” she coos at the end of the lush tune.

Jhené Aiko Teases ‘Special Project’ and John Mayer Collaborations

jhene-aiko teva

Jhené Aiko has something “special” up her sleeve.

During an interview with Nylon, the Los Angeles songstress revealed that she’s “excited” to share it with the world “soon.”

“I’ve been working on a special project for coming up on three years,” she said. “I’m excited to share that. It’s been a very tedious and personal thing, and it involves everything that I do. Growing up, singing was always my hobby. It was just something that I did to feel good. Whenever I was sad or mad, I would just sing about it, make up a little song about it. And I feel like writing and acting and just expressing myself have always been things that I wanted to develop as an artist, so what I’ve been working on pretty much involves everything that I feel is my passion, rolled into one. That’s why it’s been three years that I’ve been working on it, and I’d like to share it with everyone soon.”
