R&B songstress Jhené Aiko released a beautiful ballad on her soundcloud yesterday. New Balance is filled with raw emotion that will bring you to tears. Her sense of vulnerability makes this song intimate, almost as though she’s singing these lyrics to you. Jhené being a master wordsmith her poetry in this track thrives throughout the vivid emotion.
I’m glad to see Jhené be filled with love and happiness. She says that her music reflects her emotions and real life experiences which makes it easier to connect to her. I’m delighted to see her evolve from “you’re the worst you know what’ve done to me” to “you’re my salvage, you’re my balance”. Can’t wait to see more love songs in her discography.
