Jhené Aiko Reveals ‘Souled Out’ Album Cover, Release Date

Suited and booted. Jhené Aiko has unveiled the cover art and release date for her highly-anticipated debut.

Souled Out will arrive on September 9 via Artium Records/Def Jam. The heavens part as the R&B singer floats up from the sea into the sky on the celestial artwork.

The album follows her 2011 mixtape Sailing Soul(s) and 2013 EP Sail Out, which spawned the hit single “The Worst” and collaborations with Kendrick Lamar, Childish Gambino, and Vince Staples.

Souled Out includes the singles “The Pressure” and “To Love & Die” featuring Cocaine 80s. In April, she performed another album cut entitled “Spotless Mind” at Coachella.

In addition to No I.D., the dark and melodic project features production from Key Wane, Fisticuffs, James Fauntleroy, and Dot Da Genius. Her daughter Namiko is featured on “Promises,” but don’t expect many other collaborations.

“I did the album and it just shaped up to be all me,” she told Rap-Up TV. “I just didn’t leave room for anybody just because I have a lot to say. I just wrote the songs from top to bottom.”

Following the album’s release, Jhené will join The Weeknd on his four-city “King of the Fall” tour with ScHoolboy Q, starting September 19 at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.

remember when she tried to use B2K to get famous. just shows how long shes been trying it.

Back in the day when Jhene first got signed to TUG, Chris Stokes lied to the fans and said Jhene was Lil Fizz's cousin. This was just a marketing ploy to avoid the hate from B2K's rabid fanbase at the time. Chris did the same thing with B2K by saying Omarion and Marques Houston were brothers to try and pull in the IMX/Immature fanbase. To this day people still think that Omarion and Marques Houston are brothers. But Jhene is still involved with that family as she has a daughter with Omarion's brother O'Ryan.

greenfairy_87 5th-Aug-2014 09:09 pm (UTC)
I actually really like the art, my only complaint is less orange and blue.
pikapika217 5th-Aug-2014 09:10 pm (UTC)
I wish her pose was different but I like the general setting
kiwibutter 5th-Aug-2014 09:10 pm (UTC)
that cover is so fucking scary. getting alien abduction vibes
kiwibutter 5th-Aug-2014 09:11 pm (UTC)
or she jumped out of a plane into the middle of the ocean, which is like my worst nightmare
markedglory 5th-Aug-2014 09:11 pm (UTC)
I hope she continues to ID the fuckboys of the music industry/in her life.
pippivirgin 5th-Aug-2014 09:41 pm (UTC)
yep. i like her
misoras 5th-Aug-2014 10:06 pm (UTC)

davetvs 5th-Aug-2014 10:41 pm (UTC)

bee_q People say she's boring and or can't sing5th-Aug-2014 09:11 pm (UTC)
.. But I really like her style. Her music works well because I can just play it.. drink a beer and relax. Plus I think her beats are good too. I'm looking forward to the album.
hotcinnamonbuns 5th-Aug-2014 09:11 pm (UTC)
it looks a little bit better than this mesS:
kiwibutter 5th-Aug-2014 09:13 pm (UTC)
looks like the cover to a 99 cent pirate erotica on amazon
pippivirgin 5th-Aug-2014 09:41 pm (UTC)

stellar_kar 5th-Aug-2014 09:13 pm (UTC)

grandmascorner 5th-Aug-2014 09:18 pm (UTC)

avantgaurdian1 5th-Aug-2014 09:12 pm (UTC)
finally the murmur chanteuse releases an lp
nineteensix196 5th-Aug-2014 09:14 pm (UTC)
crying @ her implying her music is soulful
dnttllhrry 5th-Aug-2014 09:51 pm (UTC)
She has the least soulful voice out of all the new R&B girls out now. I still bop to her music ever now and then though.
humannatur3 5th-Aug-2014 09:15 pm (UTC)
I kinda love it, tbh. It's pretty. Very elusive chanteuse.
