In the summer of 2012, I became a Jhené Aiko fan due to her mixtape Sailing Souls . I was hoping that people would catch on to her music soon and after the release of her Sail Out EP last year I got my wish.

With performances on Jimmy Kimmel alongside Drake , and most recently the 2014 BET Awards , her fan base is starting to grow and I love it.

And now the wait for Miss Aiko’s long anticipated debut studio album will soon be over. The L.A.-based singer-songwriter will release Souled Out on August 25th September 9th via No I.D. ‘s ARTium Records/Def Jam.

The album’s official lead single, To Love & Die ,” which features Cocaine 80s , premiered in the middle of June 2014.

In addition to No I.D., the album will feature production from Key Wane, Fisticuffs, James Fauntleroy , and Dot Da Genius . Take a look at what she had to say about the album below:

“I did the album and it just shaped up to be all me. I just didn’t leave room for anybody just because I have a lot to say. I just wrote the songs from top to bottom.”
