A lot has happened for Jhené Aiko in the past few years. Perhaps the most notable is that she gave birth to her baby boy, whom she shares with rapper Big Sean, last year. It’s looking like the singer is also ready to bring some new music into the world, as well. She starts with the release of her latest single “calm & patient.”

If there was ever a song that lives up to its title, “calm & patient” is it. It opens with swelling strings, twinkling notes and warm piano keys that lead into Jhené vocalizing before the song’s start. The song, her first new release since the holiday tune “Wrap Me Up” — eventually finds its way into the ever slight swing of a groove, which the singer rides with an ease that only she can.

Lyrically, she’s paying tribute to the one whose love is the source of her peaceful demeanor. “And I know whatеver happens, I’ll be happy / Bеcause I happen to be good in any situation / Calm and patient, by your grace I’ma be,” she sings on the chorus. “I’ll be singing through the pain, I’ma dance in the rain / I’ma feel it, I’ma always keep the faith / I’ma be OK ’cause I’m still in it.”

Written in a way that she could be talking to a parent, child, friend, lover or higher power, “calm & patient” has a universal appeal that should make it yet another favorite in her catalog. Allow Jhené Aiko to give you gratitude and good vibes when you listen to “calm & patient” below.
