Jhené Aiko


Jhené Aiko (born March 16, 1988) is an American R&B/Hip-Hop singer-songwriter, whose popularity grew out of her allegiance with the R&B group B2K, hailing from Los Angeles, California, U.S.

Born the last of three daughters, Jhené Aiko first began earning a reputation for herself in the early 2000s. After signing with Epic Records in 2002, the singer contributed to a host of tracks by the American R&B group B2K, as well as appearing is music videos for her sisters’ group, Gyrl. Having also contributed to songs by O’Ryan, P.Y.T., and the film soundtracks “Barbershop”, “The Master of Disguise”, and “Byou”, Aiko recorded her debut album, “My Name Is Jhené” in 2003. The record was subsequently shelved with the singer focusing on her education.

Aiko returned in 2011 to release the mixtape “Sailing Soul(s)”, featuring high-profile artists including Drake, Gucci Mane, and Kanye West. The mixtape was well-received and resulted in Aiko signing with No I.D.’s Def Jam imprint ARTium the following year. The singer’s official debut single “3:16AM” arrived the same year, following which Aiko made high-profile contributions to Big Sean’ Top 40 Hit “Beware”, and Drake’s third full-length album “Nothing Was the Same”. Greatly increasing her exposure in the U.S. and internationally, Aiko subsequently opened for Drake on his Would You Like a Tour? tour in October 2013.

A month later the singer issued her debut EP “Sail Out”, which peaked at No. 8 on the Billboard 200. Featuring Vince Staples, Childish Gambino, and Kendrick Lamar, the record was a huge success, highlighting the minimalist, airy aesthetic of Aiko’s sound. This appeal was repeated on her debut full-length album “Souled Out”, released in September 2014. Debuting at No. 3 on the Billboard 200, the record was led by the single “To Love & Die” and earned warm reviews from a host of periodicals.
