Jhene Aiko Reveals ‘Souled Out’ Album Cover, Release Date
After what seems like forever, Jhene Aiko has finally revealed the release date for her debut album, ‘Souled Out.’
Set to drop on Sept. 9 via Artium Records/Def Jam, she also released the album art as well, which depicts her being levitated from the water toward the beaming light. The image resembles something quite religious or intergalactic — depending on how you view it.
‘Soulded Out’ will include her new singles, ‘The Pressure,’ ‘To Love & Die,’ which features Cocaine 80s,’ and ‘Spotless Mind’ — a track she performed at Coachella. On the production end, it’ll feature the expertise of No I.D., Key Wane, Fisticuffs, James Fauntleroy and Dot Da Genius. Her daughter Maiko will also be a featured voice on ‘Promises.’
“I did the album and it just shaped up to be all me,” she told Rap-Up TV. “I just didn’t leave room for anybody just because I have a lot to say. I just wrote the songs from top to bottom.”
Jhene will also be joining The Weeknd and Schoolboy Q on the ‘King of the Fall’ tour that kicks off on Sept. 19 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
