When I first read the title of Jhené Aiko‘s latest single, I immediately envisioned an R&B sequel to Eminem‘s blood-soaked 3 AM—and the eerie opening shots of Topshelf Junior‘s video only strengthened that impression. For better or for worse, though, 3:16 AM doesn’t feature the Def Jam pop songstress on a murderous rampage. Instead, this brooding cut sees her directing her frustration inward, lacing frequent Miguel collaborator Fisticuffs’ haunting production with cryptic reflections on a doomed relationship. For this smoldering selection and much more, grab a copy of Aiko’s Sail Out EP when it hits record store shelves and online retailers at a yet unspecified future date. In the meantime, keep it locked for the latest.
