Jhene Aiko has become r&b's "It" girl but it's not because of her spectacular body and model face but more her introspective, fearless song lyrics which combine her ability to sing and rap. There is no model 'picture' of what someone who loves smoking cannabis looks like but as some entertainment/music observers have noted, Jhene Aiko looks like one of the last people who would be not only a marijuana smoker but a lover of cannabis who sings about it in her songs.
She is an r&b artist whose fearlessness is felt through her songs which are sometimes deep confessions and talk about her heartbreak, loss and loneliness.
What has being fearless and honest done for her career? It has earned her three Grammy nominations including one for urban contemporary album for her debut EP "Sail Out". Moreover, it has made her one of the most in-demand r&b artists that some of the top music performers want to collaborate with as artists such as Nick Jonas have sought out her talents and has stars such as J. Cole bringing her on their concert tours likely because they know her presence will bring fans ... in droves.
Jhene Aiko is an r&b music entertainer primed to 'explode' into the mainstream as a music performer but what makes her so unique is that her popularity as an artist is growing in large part due to her becoming successful 'her way' which as her song lyrics indicate is the farthest thing from being 'politically correct'.
She is beautiful, controversial and extremely talented, all traits that draw fans to an artist as Jhene Aiko proved in 2014 and is continuing to show in 2015 as the list of artists who want to collaborate with this talented and gorgeous music artist keeps getting longer and more distinguished.
Jhene Aiko is looking she will be the next 'big' r&b star to emerge in 2015.
