Stream Jhene Aiko “Triggered freestyle”
Jhené Aiko has released new song “Triggered.” a sensual meditation on the swirl of bitterness and loneliness that follows a breakup.
“I realized that instead of running away from my emotions…I needed to sit with them, express myself and say whatever came to mind,” Aiko continued. “It was healing to say the least…and now I feel a bit more free.” She ended the message with a blue heart and the hashtag “#triggered.” The soulful singer first teased the track back in December when she shared a snippet with her Instagram followers.
The track is one of the Grammy-nominated artist’s first songs since 2017 album Trip and takes the form of a freestyle in which she opens up about her confused feelings following a split.
“Triggered” is accompanied by a video in which Aiko takes in the se breeze from the coast line. Check it out below.
