[Music Video] Jhené Aiko - "The Worst"

I spent my entire shift at the good ol' 9 to 5 playing Jhené Aiko's new EP Sail Out, and I'm happy to see that it's doing extremely well on iTunes. Sail Out is currently in the top 3 albums overall and is currently king of the R&B charts.

To make things even better, Jhené offered up dramatic visuals to "The Worst," one of Sail Out's darker compositions. Perhaps we'll see her on season 2 of Orange Is The New Black? (Probably not, but definitely catch her alongside Drake, Miguel and Future on the remaining stops of Would You Like A Tour?)

Purchase Sail Out on iTunes HERE! It's also available for stream on Spotify.

Props to Noisey for the premiere, and head there to catch an exclusive interview with Ms. Aiko!

DJ Hourglass - Think Outside The Clock, Vol. 2 [New Mix]

Vol. 1 received a ton of love from you all, so I made sure to spend even more working on "Think Outside The Clock, Vol. 2." Just like the first installment, Vol. 2 is mostly comprised of remixes from my favorite DJs and producers, but this one is more representative of my experience in the Atlanta club scene. It also features an impromptu live remix of Jhené Aiko's "Stranger" by yours truly.

Download and stream Vol. 2 below, and hit the jump for a full track listing! Be sure to show love on my Soundcloud, Facebook, and Twitter!

Big Sean ft. Lil Wayne & Jhené Aiko - "Beware"

Ever since Jhené Aiko became a part of No I.D.'s Artium/Def Jam family, Big Sean took advantage of the new addition, revealing their chemistry in the studio on a few tracks from his acclaimed Detroit mixtape. Now with his sophomore album Hall Of Fame officially slated for an August 27th release, he rolls out another single attempt with "Beware" featuring the "Comfort Inn Ending" songstress and Lil Wayne.

Jhené Aiko - "Comfort Inn Ending" (Prod. by No. I.D.)

For all my fellow Jhené Aiko fans dying to hear what her Artium/Def Jam debut Soul(ed) Out will offer, the beautiful songwriter gives us a bone with the 2 minute freestyle "Comfort Inn Ending."

Produced by her boss No I.D., Jhene vents about a recent relationship that went sour due to infidelity. I'm not one to speculate, but "CIE" may be about Compton rapper and Sailing Soul(s) collaborator H.O.P.E. Wright, who she publicly dated for a few years.

Although heartache may cause a few tears, thankfully, it can also create some great music. Thanks for sharing Ms. Aiko.

[Music Video] Jhené Aiko - "Burning Man (3:16 PM)"

After taking us through the dark recesses of her mind on "3:16am," Jhené Aiko uses the sunshine of 3:16pm to bring us the lighter track "Burning Man."

Check out the visuals to the Artium songstress' new single below, and catch cameos from her Cocaine 80s collaborator James Fauntleroy and her daughter's uncle, Omarion. Jhené's major label debut Soul(ed) Out is in the works!

Cocaine 80's ft. Jhene Aiko & Common - "Fly Ass Pisces"

Cocaine 80s is always lowkey with their releases, so I'm excited I caught this track on Twitter. Now that Jhené Aiko is down with the Artium clique, she, No I.D., James Fauntleroy and co. have been making beautiful music together. Add extended family Common to the equation and you get  "Fly Ass Pisces." Keep this one on repeat until Cocaine 80s drops its fourth project, Flower Of Life EP.

[Music Video] Jhené Aiko - "Mirrors"

Hopefully you were fortunate enough as me to catch Jhené Aiko's opening set on Nas & Lauryn Hill's Life Is Good/Black Rage tour. She was incredible.

Ab-Soul ft. Danny Brown & Jhené Aiko - Terrorist Threats [Music Video]

Ab-Soul's Control System is already my favorite album of the year, and he's definitely not disappointing with the visuals to "Terrorist Threats." He recruits Jhené Aiko, clad in a black TDE Hoodie, and Danny Brown, who join Soulo in rebelling against constraints placed on us by society. Listen closely, and cop the album on iTunes!


Jhené Aiko - 2 Seconds (Prod. by Roosevelt)

This day started off right, thanks to this new Cocaine 80s track, and now it's ending perfectly courtesy of Jhené Aiko's generosity. To hold us over until we get the full "3:16" single, she dropped the currently finished track "2 Seconds," produced by Roosevelt. These two work so well together.

Props to AO!
