’13 Best R&B Albums #3: Jhene Aiko Sail Out

Written By: @TheBigHomie January 8, 2014 @ 4:38 PM EDT

All Aboard.

After years of being signed to Def Jam, the songstress from the City of Angels finally released her extended play, Sail Out. In the span of seven satisfying tracks, she explores addiction (“The Vapors”), love (“Stay Ready”) and break-ups (“WTH”).

On the dark “3:16 AM”, life takes her on a journey to hell and back. But on “Bed Peace”, she finds herself awakening from a sexual romp with Childish Gambino. Luckily for us, we also get to bask in the afterglow. This is only the appetizer for the forthcoming debut album, but until then, it’s smooth sailing from here.—Big Homie
