Jhené Aiko, 29, is an American pop artist who began her music career as a part of the R&B group B2K.
While a member of the group, she was known as the “cousin” member Lil’ Fizz’s “cousin”, though she is not actually related to him — the “cousin” thing was just a marketing tool. In 2003, Aiko was set to release her debut album,”My Name Is Jhené”, however, the album was never released. Instead, Aiko asked to be released from the label so she could pursue her education.
Aiko released her first EP, titled “Sail Out”, on in November 2013. The following year, Aiko released her debut album “Souled Out” on September 8, 2014. In February 2015, Aiko was nominated for three Grammy Awards, including Best R&B Song for “The Worst” and Best Urban Contemporary Album for “Sail Out”.
In 2016, Aiko became more famous after she began dating Detriot & GOOD Music rapper Big Sean. During that same year, Big Sean and Aiko released an album called Twenty88, with Aiko using the alias Twenty88. On September 22, 2017, Aiko’s second studio album, Trip, was released without any prior announcement or marketing.
