Jhené Aiko - Spotless Mind

  • Artist: Jhené Aiko
  • Track: Spotless Mind
  • Producer: No I.D.

In Michel Gondry's Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, an estranged couple played by Kate Winslet and Jim Carrey each choose to have the other erased from his or her memory, rather than living with the pain of lost love. Though Jhené Aiko's latest single borrows its name from that record, the pop songstress doesn't seem ready to take such drastic measures. Rather than phoning the nearest brainwashing clinic, she simply chides both herself and her ex-man for the decisions that brought them to this point: “Shame on me for changing / No, shame on you for staying the same.” An inventive set of visuals by Jay Ahn accompanies the breezy, No I.D.-produced jam. For Spotless and much more, cop Aiko's debut set, Souled Out, available now in stores and online.
