Jhene Aiko, the Los Angeles singer released her most anticipated song ‘Sail Out’, even prior to her debut album ‘Souled Out’ hits shelves.
She has a extensive and high profile history in the music industry and Sail Out marks her major label solo debut. She has been helping as the secret hot weapon in key songs like most prominently Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Big Sean, Wale and J.Cole has toured with these artists such as Nas and Lauryn Hill. “Sail Out” was released alongside a new visual for her track “The Worst”.
Sail Out takes fans from Sailing Soul, Aiko’s 2011 mix tape, and Souled Out, as the name suggests. Bed Peace, a cut from Sail Out will be on iTunes soon.
The video for “Bed Peace” reconstructed the famous scene from 1969 in Amsterdam when Yoko Ono and John Lennon camped out in a bed as an unconventional protest against the Vietnam War.
Kendrick Lamar, Childish Gambino, Vince Staples and Ab-Soul are the stars who made their guest appearances in the 7 track EP. Good news for all the music lovers is that they can now download the whole album for free.
Aiko said, the EP is like bridging the gap between her mix tape Sailing Soul and Souled Out. Sail Out is something that people would like to put in their cars as it has a lot of the Hip Hop/ Rap influence on it, even with the beats.
On this half hour, seven songs EP, she never breaks a sweat by design and it is rigidly confined in both pace and vocals.
