Throughout the past few weeks, Jhené Aiko has shared information on her sophomore solo album TRIP.
“It’s inspired by every type of trip you could imagine: mental, physical, even psychedelic,” Aiko described. “I’m at a point where I put it all in the music. It’s a puzzle I want people to put together.”
Earlier this week, she revealed an accompanying short film for it. True to its namesake, the short was a drug-fueled adventure that delved from trippy to flat-out dark and dangerous.
Immediately after, Jhené released a “MAP Mission,” a manifesto which she revealed that the album and short film are parts of a three-piece package, which also includes a book of original poetry.
» M.ovie (TRIP – a short film), A.lbum (TRIP), P.oetry book (2fish). «
Jhené has now released TRIP. A 22-track effort, the project has features from Big Sean, Twenty88 (isn’t that the same thing?), Kurupt, Brandy and more. Stream TRIP via Apple Music and add the album to your preferred streaming platform.
