Jhené Aiko Drops Deluxe Version of 'Chilombo'

Featuring collaborations with Kehlani, Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalifa and more.

UPDATE (July 17, 2020): Jhené Aiko has released the deluxe version of her latest album, Chilombo. The R&B artist’s original 20-track project includes the popular “Triggered (Freestyle),” “None of Your Concern” featuring Big Sean, “PU$$Y Fairy (OTW)” and “Happiness Over Everything (H.O.E.)” with Future and Miguel. Additionally, it landed the first spot on the Billboard R&B charts after its debut in March.

Now, the expanded edition has been given nine new songs and features collaborations with Kehlani, Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalifa and more. Listen to Chilombo (Deluxe) via the streaming platforms below and let us know your favorites in the comments.


ORIGINAL STORY (March 6, 2020): R&B star Jhené Aiko has released her third album, Chilombo, a word that translates to “wild beast” and is also Aiko’s legal surname. The 20-track release sees Aiko experiment with sound therapy through the use of crystal alchemy singing bowls, which create resonant tones when struck with a mallet, throughout.

In an interview with Billboard, Aiko explained how her use of singing bowls is meant to activate different chakras in the body. For example, the song “P*$$Y Fairy (OTW)” features Aiko playing a singing bowl in the key of D — “D corresponds with your second chakra, which governs your sexual organs below your navel and your hips. So even though the song is fun and sexy, there’s an actual healing instrument in there to help balance you out in those areas.” she said. In addition to the use of sound therapy, Chilombo also boasts an extensive roster of collaborators including Future, H.E.R., Nas and Aiko’s father, Dr. Chill.
