Not featured on the solo tip since dropping off Everything Must Go back in March (though she recently contributed guest vocals to Big Sean‘s Beware), Jhené Aiko makes her triumphant return to our pages with freshly-minted R&B “freestyle” Comfort Inn Ending.

This promo cut isn’t attached to a larger project, but we’ll keep you posted on Jhené Aiko’s plans as further details emerge.
