Watch Jhene Aiko’s Intimate ‘The Pressure’ Video and Stream ‘Souled Out’
Jhene Aiko makes music for everyone to zone out to — including herself. She at least tries to do just that in the new video for ‘The Pressure,’ a cut off her debut album.
Aiko is a star. But before the congratulations, be aware of the sacrifices that have to be made. The songstress tries to find solace in the dark as she lives through the tensions surrounding her life: crumbling relationships with family, publicity pressure and stale romances. ‘The Pressure’ makes you do crazy things, like wearing brown braids that are a huge step away from the norm. Aiko is rocking it though.
And you can rock with her on ‘Souled Out,’ which is available for streaming. The debut has been an anticipated one by many despite the numerous delays. This effort is mostly a stand alone one with Common and Cocaine 80s being the only notable guests. The release of ’The Pressure’ video makes sense as Aiko has quite a bit of hype to live up to. Find out if she’s lived up to it by catching the stream at iTunes Radio below.
