Jhene on her ‘old flame’ for new video “Spotless Mind”

Rumor has it Jhene Aiko may have secretly married her longtime boyfriend and producer Dot Da Genius, but he’s not the one featured in her latest video. Instead, she’s hooking up with her baby’s daddy.

Aiko just dropped the visuals for her song “Spotless Mind” and in the creative video the soulful singer showcases several personalities throughout one day. From boho chic to high siddity chick and even dominatrix, Jhene shows how girls can transform multiple times in just 24 hours. But, that’s not the only thing you’ll notice in the four and a half minute vid. If you look closely, you’ll see that her love interest is none other than the father of her daughter and Omarion’s brother, O’Ryan. Even though their relationship didn’t work out, it’s good to see that they’re on good terms and can co-parent their baby girl.

Coming off the release of his MMG debut, Sex Playlist, Omarion is still riding the wave of latest radio hit, “Post To Be”, with Chris Brown and Jhene Aiko (as he should be). To promote the DJ Mustard-produced single, Omarion decided to give it the visual treatment recently out in Los Angeles, and here we have an early sneak peak at what’s in stored.

In the photos that surfaced online, the three longtime friends can be seen stuntin’ in front of a white Ferrari and standing on set by an all-white backdrop. Revealed via Instagram, Omarion wrote the caption, “Everything good like its “Post to be”.

Jhene Aiko: Best Non Hip-Hop Album of 2014

jhene-smith

Frankly we struggled a bit with what to call this category. R&B didn’t feel quite right, neither did pop, neither did soul. What would you call an album like Raury’s Indigo Child? Theophilus London’s Vibes? So we settled on Best Non Hip-Hop, a designation I hope makes it clear that we’re talking about awesome, often hard to categorize music that wasn’t hip-hop. And after thousands of votes, two excellent winners have emerged out of all the not-hip-hop albums that dropped last year.

Reader’s Pick: Jhené Aiko “Souled Out”

The world had been waiting for this album from Jhené Aiko for a long time. For nearly the last three years she’d been gaining more and more fans thanks to her own solo material and a steady stream of impressive guest work, but it was all leading up to her proper, major album. All that waiting only seemed to fuel fans’ appreciation even more, as they turned out in droves to not only cop Souled Out but sing its praises. From start to finish this is one of those albums that creates a mood, an atmosphere, a continuous feeling, that makes it the perfect background music, and we mean that in the best way possible. This is an album that can literally serve as the soundtrack, the backing music, to your life, and album that will be there on Saturday nights and Sunday mornings and everywhere in between. Souled Out was well worth the wait, thank you Jhené.

Staff Pick: Sam Smith “In the Lonely Hour”

It may seem odd to quote Dead Prez right about now, but the amazing thing about music is that if you feel it you feel it and if you don’t you don’t, and there weren’t many artists in 2014 that people felt more strongly than Sam Smith. There’s just something about his honesty, his songwriting, that voice, that connects with people on a deeper level, and impressively he managed to assemble all those qualities in an album that simply doesn’t have any filler – from top to bottom it’s a tight yet sonicaly expansive project that already feels like will stand the test of time. How ironic that an album called In the Lonely Hour made us feel not-so-alone last year? We can’t wait to see what Sam Smith has in store for us next.

Congrats to Jhené and Sam Smith, who both showed that there’s still music being made that’s capable of reaching out hearts.

ASAP Rocky, Chance The Rapper, Jhene Aiko Make Forbes “30 Under 30″ List

Hip Hop and R&B artists make up a good chunk of Forbes 2015 “30 Under 30″ list.

Making the Forbes list in an honor often romanticized in rap, and if the latest “30 under 30″ list is any indication, more and more hip hop and R&B artists will find themselves in the Forbes tax bracket. About a third of this year’s list — which looks at artists in their 20s who are making some serious moves in the industry — is made up of rappers, producers, and R&B singers.

Among those picked as future moguls are ASAP Rocky, Big Sean, FKA Twigs, Mike WiLL Made It, Jhene Aiko, Iggy Azalea, DJ Mustard, Azealia Banks, Hit-Boy and Chance The Rapper. The artists range in age from 21 to 27 (Chance being the youngest, and Hit-Boy the oldest, relatively speaking).

Florida Georgia Line were chosen as the “Leaders” of the class of 2015, and despite being a country act, are infamous for pulling liberally from the world of hip hop and R&B as well.

Jhené Aiko seems ready to fill a void in mainstream R&B

Jhené Aiko launched her first headlining tour on Tuesday night, a 13-date jaunt billed as “Enter the Void.” She was joined by alternative singer-songwriter SZA, neo-soul nostalgia outfit the Internet and pop scion Willow Smith. The “void” of the tour’s title seems to speak to the woozy, off-kilter and experimental elements that often are missing from mainstream R&B. Judging by the sold-out crowd at the Fillmore Silver Spring, there is an audience that feels the same way.

After short sets by Smith and the Internet, a confident SZA performed a dreamy blend of hip-hop, electronic music and R&B, but her set lacked cohesion. Songs often ended abruptly, leaving the crowd unsure when to applaud.

Structuring a set was no problem for headliner Aiko, a more experienced live performer who has toured with Drake and the Weeknd. (She also has been in the music business since her early teens.) As the lights dimmed, shrieks and squeals turned into roars as the delicate singer materialized onstage. In concert, her voice was as saccharine as it is on recordings, but its wispiness often left it lost in the mix. The audience was more than happy to help make up the difference: Every song was a singalong, with some passionate fans performing their own renditions on the fringes of the crowd.

“I consider my fans soulmates,” she said, and that connection served her well. Each song was somebody’s favorite, whether it was the sunny, guitar-driven “Bed Peace,” the drum-heavy version of “3:16 AM,” or the breakup anthem “Lyin King,” before which she instructed the crowd to “put your ex on speakerphone.”

Some of Aiko’s most memorable turns have been on the songs of contemporaries Drake and Chris Brown, but her best songs are her most personal ones. “W.A.Y.S.,” which she said was her favorite from her debut album, “Souled Out,” was the night’s highlight. The title is short for “why aren’t you smiling?” a sentiment shared with her by her brother Miyagi, who died in 2012. “That’s a tough one,” she confided. “I thought I was going to bust out crying.” If there’s a void in mainstream R&B, her confidence and strength — and that of her tour mates — should be enough to fill it.
