Jhené Aiko - Wading

  • Artist: Jhené Aiko
  • Track: Wading
  • Producer: Dot da Genius

It's 37 degrees Fahrenheit here in Brooklyn and, while it could certainly be colder, I'm not feeling the idea of going for a swim. I'd make an exception, though, to go Wading with Jhené Aiko. I mean, who wouldn't? I very much doubt the R&B songstress is gonna take me up on that invitation, but her latest single is quite a dope consolation prize. To accompany the record, a melancholy, Dot da Genius-produced ballad that finds Aiko “turn[ing] blue” thanks to her unreciprocated feelings for a certain man, director Jay Ahn creates a moody, atmospheric clip set in a starkly-lit strip club. Souled Out is available now in stores and online, and fans can currently catch the artist on her Enter the Void Tour with SZA.
