Jhené Aiko got her start by contributing vocals and appearing in music videos for the band B2K featuring Omarion, Lil Fizz, Raz-B, and J-Boog. Eventually, she moved on and released her first solo project, a mixtape called Sailing Soul(s) in 2011. The mixtape propelled her way into a successful career in R&B; she’s gotten six Grammy nods for her projects in the last decade.

Jhené Aiko In 2024

Jhené Aiko released her first song in over three years back in January. “Sun/Son” is a tribute to her son Noah that she welcomed with her longtime partner Big Sean back in 2022. The track was produced by Derex Williams and the late AUGUST 08.

“There’s no more cloudy days/ Even when there’s no light out/ I feel your warm embrace/ You love me with passion/ When I’m at a raise, you’re like the anchor/ And I am so glad you came/ Just right when I needed savin’/ Waited awhile, don’t know where you was/ I prayed out loud and then there you were/ Made for the veil, you’re the way, the one/ No doubt about it, you charge me up, you chargе me up/ My solar power, I’m so in love…”

In 2020, Aiko dropped Chilombo , which earned the Los Angeles native three Grammy nominations.” Chilombo was nominated for Best R&B Performance for “Lightning & Thunder,” Best Progressive R&B Album, and Album Of The Year. The album had appearances from John Legend, Future, H.E.R., Miguel, Big Sean, Nas, Ab-Soul, and Ty Dolla $ign. The project debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200.

In an Instagram Live back in 2022, Sean got fans excited when he announced that he and Jhené are working on a sequel to their hit joint album Twenty88.

“I’m here working on [a] new album and new TWENTY88, me and Jhené,” the Detroit rapper said at the time,”S—, we’ve been working on it for a little bit… It’s coming along good, though.”

While we wait for a new Twenty88 or just some new singles for Jhené, take a look at 12 of her best songs to hold you over:
