Los Angeles native Jhené Aiko represented her city well at Super Bowl LVI, which took place in Inglewood, California at SoFi Stadium. The sweet and petite songstress was tasked with singing “America The Beautiful,” and her rendition was simply breathtaking.
Dressed in a dark brown sequined gown with a thigh-high slit, Jhené served gridiron glamour on the field. Before the Los Angeles Rams and Cincinnati Bengals battled it out for the title, she mellowed them out with a soothing, subdued version of the patriotic song. Backed by a harpist who was situated next to her, Jhené’s feathery soft delivery made “America The Beautiful” sound like a sexy lullaby. She even sang some ad-libs on the outro to keep the vibes going.
This performance was a great look for the songstress who has more big things popping this year, including a new TWENTY88 project with her boo Big Sean on the follow-up to their 2016 debut together. Whatever Jhené Aiko has in the works, we are ready and waiting to receive it.
