Jhene Aiko Returns w/ Sultry New Single “Maniac”

Earlier this year Jhene Aiko teamed up with newfound lover Big Sean for the collaborative Twenty88 EP. They’ve promised a full collaborative project at some point this year or next, but before we get there, Aiko has released a sultry new solo single for fans to bide their time with.

Today she unveils “Maniac” as her latest club-certified cut; a mid-tempo floor-wrecker that’s brimming with confidence and sexuality, ripe and ready for those night-time-is-the-right-time moments. And while there’s no date pegged to the full-length with Big Sean, some all-by-her-lonesome joints will certainly do as we wait on that all-star collabo piece. Hear a new stunner from Jhene Aiko in the player below, just be sure to keep your ear to the ground for more in the weeks and months ahead. You can also catch her live and direct sharing the stage with Eryn Allen Kane and Cherrie as part of Red Bull Sound Select‘s 30 Days in LA series later this month.

In December she’ll perform two consecutive post-holidaze merriments at The Republik in Honolulu. So if you happen to be on those sandy shores, make sure to step out and catch your girl.
