The musical butterfly, Jhene Aiko soars in again, this time on a smoother note since our last encounter. The new song “The Pressure” demonstrates a Sade-esque feel over a melodic trance produced by The Fistcuffs, and comes a few weeks after the release of Aiko’s Cocaine 80‘s assisted single ‘To Love And Die’.
The signature that Aiko signs on all of her records is a representation of what Jhene offers to music lovers and the industry, storytelling, and this song definitely has my undivided attention. Expressing the pressure she felt during the completion of her album, Jhene chants “After the sun rises, there’s no compromising” in the opening line to the 2nd verse.
This is expected to be a cut off of Jhene’s forthcoming LP ‘Souled Out‘, set to be released in September which will follow her 5-city tour with The Weeknd and ScHoolboy Q beginning September 19th. Wait no longer and dive into the hypnotizing record below!
