Less than a year after dazzling listeners and critics with debut EP Sail Out, R&B songstress Jhené Aiko has liberated another collection of R&B gems.
The Def Jam songstress's first studio album, Souled Out comes on the heels of two reader-acclaimed singles: the Cocaine '80s-assisted "To Love & Die" and "The Pressure." "My Afternoon Dream" will be included as one of two exclusive bonus tracks on the Target edition of the LP.
Windy City veteran Common also appears on the set, which packs production by Dot Da Genius, Fisticuffs, No I.D and Woodro Skillson.
