I’ve heard faint rumblings of the name Jhené Aiko, but I hadn’t really paid much attention to them. I know she’s featured on a song on Drake’s new album, and has a couple guest spots on other hip-hop artists records, but that’s the extent of what I knew… Until today. “Bed Peace” ft. Childish Gambino popped up on my radar today and I think I’m in love, I don’t normally like music like this. And when I say “In love”, sure Jhené herself is gorgeous, but I actually am really digging this song. It even prompted me to spend a few minutes looking up some of her other tracks on YouTube to see what else is out there, and unfortunately there isn’t much out there yet. She’s got one other single out, which you can find on Spotify, but other than that it’s just some live show videos. And now that I think about it, I believe she was at Lollapalooza this year, or maybe last.

Either way, I felt the song was occupying enough of my playlist today to warrant making a post about. So give it a listen. I’m sure it’s not for everyone, but may it’ll surprise you. This definitely has Jhené Aiko on my radar from now on and I look forward to hearing her EP “Sail Out”, which hits stores in mid-November.
