Vibe On It: Jhené Aiko – While We’re Young

“I think we should do something crazy”

Soul siren Jhené Aiko recently dropped a chill R&B track titled “While We’re Young” and I’m over here getting all the feels. It’s the Jhené I miss and have been wanting to hear more of. Although I do appreciate her more pop-heavy tracks, she’s better fitted with a slower tempo like this new single. It’s reminiscent of her work on “Bed Peace” and “Spotless Mind,” where the background beat is minimal and her voice carries the weight of the whole track. Now, if only Childish Gambino would make a cameo on a remix then this single would be timeless. You know, before he retires that name forever.

A visual has already been made for the new track so hit play below. You’ll quickly notice the inspiration from the movie 50 First Dates which starred Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler.
