Jhené Aiko is fast becoming the go-to gal for chilled out, alt-R&B, love-ish songs, and it doesn’t appear as if things will change when her debut album, Souled Out, is released if this latest leak is any indication. “The Pressure” is right in Aiko’s established lane with the singer’s cotton candy vocals taking the wheel and wrapping themselves around another song about relationship issues while producer Fisticuffs‘ cool breeze soundscape rides along shotgun. She calls out this latest no-good liar on “The Pressure” in the sweetest kiss-off you’ve likely heard since her last one.
Jhené has already provided us with numerous songs for our “In My Feelings” playlists, and “The Pressure” will fit right in nicely. There’s always room for more, though, and we suspect we’ll get precisely that when Souled Out drops on August 25th.
