R&B singer Jhené Aiko has the Internet sizzling on her 26th birthday by celebrating the special occasion with the release of her new “My Afternoon Dream.”
The Key Wane-produced track bubbled online Sunday (March 16) evening.
It is remarkably subdued for a Key Wane instrumental, which shows the hit producer’s range as he enters into the Los Angeles songstress’s wheelhouse. No word on whether “My Afternoon Dream” will appear on her upcoming debut album, Souled Out, which should be coming out soon. (Complex)
Recently, producer Noah “40” Shebib likened Aiko’s sound to late singer Aaliyah.
Noah “40? Shebib agrees that Jhene Aiko is Drake’s “musical soulmate”, and even went as far as to compare the “From Time” vocalist to Aaliyah. “She has a very beautiful, very unique voice,” complimented the Nothing Was The Same producer. “She’s not a big powerhouse Beyoncé vocalist but she has something like Aaliyah. She has a tone that’s beautiful, recognizable and very much her.” (XXL Mag)
When asked about her professional bond to Drake, Aiko recently proclaimed they were musical soulmates.
Last month, Aiko resorted to her Twitter page and informed the world she was not expecting kids anytime soon.
Jhené Aiko has found her match in Drake. During Power 106?s “Valentine’s Crush” concert in L.A., the “Bed Peace” singer opened up about her connection with the Canadian rapper, who she collaborated and toured with last year. “I think that he is probably like my musical soulmate,” she told Rap-Up TV. “I just feel like our voices compliment each other, our writing styles, all of that.” Last month, Jhené joined Drake while performing “From Time” on “SNL.” “I’m not really used to cameras yet and TV performance-type things, so I was just like super nervous,” she admitted. “I think it came out good.” (Rap-Up)
