Today, Jhené Aiko released her third studio album, ‘Chilombo.’ This project features singles such as “Triggered (Freestyle), “None Of Your Concern” featuring Big Sean, and “Happiness Over Everything (H.O.E.)” feat Future and Miguel. Fans are aleady praising the album as arguably Aiko’s best piece of work to this day. One rapper who is showing Aiko plenty of love regarding Chilombo is her ex-boyfriend, Big Sean. Many believe that the two have been back together since the holidays and after collaborating last year and the album’s release has officially shown that they’re back on .
Sean and Aiko originally split near the end of 2018 after dating for almost three years but have since collaborated on None Of Your Concern and Sean’s “Single Again” record which also featured Ty Dolla $ign. Following Chilombo’s release, Sean commented “Congrats my baby you earned this one.” I love you, we all so proud! Thank you.” Aiko replied with “Thank you. I love you too.” This immediately warmed the hearts of social media as they continue to be viewed as relationship goals.
Aiko’s ‘Chilombo ‘ album contains 20 tracks with other star-studded features from Nas, John Legend, Ty Dolla $ign, H.E.R., and more. Aiko announced the release date a few weeks ago along with the “Magic Hour’ Tour” that she will be going on in May. It kicks off on May 1 in Boston and concludes on June 27 at the St. Kitts Music Festival. 32 cities in total will be visited. Guests artists that will appear throughout the tour are Queen Naija and Ann Marie.
Aiko and Sean originally began dating in 2016 following his breakup from Ariana Grande. Sean and Aiko even released a collaborative album that year titled “Twenty88.” This was also the name they went by. Fans have since called for a sequel but it may not happen anytime soon as Sean is expected to release his new album this year as well. He was recently in the studio with Nas as Sean said the New York legend would be releasing an album. As far as himself, Sean is rumored to be released his a sequel to his 2012 project, ‘Detroit.’
Aiko ended up covering up a tattoo of Sean’s face that she got but that may change soon. Their love for each other never seemed to fade away, even after the breakup. Before meeting Sean, Aiko was married to her then-husband, Oladipo Omishore, AKA Dot Da Genius from 2014-2016. 2020 looks like it’ll be a huge year musically overall for both Sean and Aiko as Chilombo has the potential to be Grammy-nominated as one of the best R&B/soul albums out. As far as Sean, hopefully we do get Detroit 2.
