I've never listened to her prior to this release. I've seen her name around so I thought I'd give it a listen. It was ok. Sounded more or less like a female Drake.

Get some!! The new EP from Jhene Aiko, featuring guests like Vince Staples, Childish Gambino, Kendrick Lamar, and Ab-soul.
2013 EP from the 25 year old R&B singer/songwriter. She caught the attention on the industry with her critically acclaimed mix-tape Sailing Soul(s) which included the track "July" featuring Drake.
