Jhené Aiko – Souled Out (Deluxe) stream

Jhené Aiko “The Pressure (Explicit)”

R&B singer/songwriter Jhené Aiko has just released her debut album Souled OutThe album cover depicts a woman (we are to assume Jhené) floating between the waves and the light, which is sums up of feeling of this album sonically and lyrically, sending the listener through the ups and downs of love while basking in the light of life. The sounds are a mixture of electronic, acoustic, groovy and ambient, complimenting Jhene’s deep, playful, emotional, and thought provoking lyrics. Notable producers on this debut album include No I.D., Key Wane, Fisticuffs, Thundercat, Dot Da Genius, Woodro Skillson and Clams Casino. Souled Out is definitely to be counted as an album that’s reflective of the cutting edge sounds of R&B/Soul today.
