Jhené Aiko


Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter Jhené Aiko was already more than a decade deep in the music game when she arrived at Def Jam in 2011 having been featured on singles, albums and mixtapes by A-listers like Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Big Sean, Logic, J. Cole, and more. Jhené made history when her 2013 debut EP, Sail Out, became the biggest-selling EP in Def Jam history, earning RIAA-certified Gold status. The EP’s success was propelled when her sizzling BET award-winning and Grammy nominated Platinum crossover hit “The Worst” went #1 and the Childish Gambino-assisted hit single “Bed Peace” earned a RIAA-certified Gold nod. Keeping the momentum going, Jhené joined Drake on his 39-city North American Would You Like A Tour? after appearing with him on NBC Universal’s The Ellen DeGeneres Show. A year later, Jhené’s 2014 solo album Souled Out, entered the Soundscan R&B chart at #1 with “The Pressure,” described by Billboard as “an otherworldly neck-snapper.”
