Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter, Jhene Aiko was already over a decade deep in the music game when she arrived at Def Jam in 2011; having been featured on singles, albums and mix tapes by A-listers Kendrick Lamar, Wale, Big Sean, Logic, J. Cole, Drake, and many more.
Jhene made history when 'Sail Out, her phenomenal #1 debut EP of 2013, became the biggest-selling EP in Def Jam history. The EPs
success was propelled by her sizzling BET Awardwinning and Grammy-nominated #1 platinum crossover hit The Worst (over 79 million combined YouTube views to date). The momentum kept up when she joined Drake on his 39-city North American tour, 'Would You Like A Tour?, and appeared with him on NBCs Saturday Night Live, leading to her own solo dates on TBSs Conan, CBSs The Late Show with David Letterman, and NBC Universals The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Jhene's brilliant solo album of 2014, 'Souled Out entered the Soundscan R&B chart at #1, and contained The Pressure, described by Billboard as "an otherworldly neck-snapper."
