What the Press is Saying About Saygrace:

“Impeccable…”Here’s to the 22-year-old finally getting the

recognition she deserves””- Idolator

“spotlights the rising star’s rich, bluesy vocals”- Consequence of Sound Bouncing between soulful vocals and spurts of rapping, SAYGRACE gets everything off her chest…“…the songstress changed her moniker and gained a new sense of self.” – Earmilk Listen to SAYGRACE’s Interview with NPR’s “All Things Considered”

About SAYGRACE and “Boys Ain’t Shit” The video for ‘Boys Ain’t Shit’ has already enjoyed over 6 million views, and the single has been

trending on TikTok with over 200k video creations. Watch SAYGRACE’s Genius Verified interview HERE.

“Boys Ain’t Shit” finds SAYGRACE flipping the script on a man who

pushed her to the breaking point — but instead of vectoring in on the problems in their situationship, SAYGRACE turned the track into an anthem for all women who feel like swiping, doing emotional labor, and the interchangeable nature of modern dating is dehumanizing.

SAYGRACE thinks of her lyrics as a message to the younger version of herself, and a message to any woman who needs to hear it; that in a world that’s always trying to shrink you, you can be as big as you want. “As women we’re told all your value is placed on how fuckable you are, but I refuse to accept that as reality,” she says. “What I realized as I got older is that nothing is more powerful than divine feminine energy and when women come together and support each other the possibilities are infinite.” SAYGRACE is all about finding her place and her power as a young woman despite sometimes still feeling like a lost kid in this big world.

Her EP, The Defining Moments of SayGrace: Girlhood, Fuckboys & Situationships, is her manifesto.

MusiCares® establish the COVID-19 Relief Fund to help people in the music industry affected by the coronavirus disease (COVID-19)

The Recording Academy® and its affiliated charitable foundation MusiCares® have established the COVID-19 Relief Fund to help people in the music industry affected by the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak and subsequent cancellation of multiple music events. From hotel and bar gigs to major music festivals, COVID-19 is deeply impacting live music events, and the creative community behind it all. Administered through MusiCares, the COVID-19 Fund will be used to directly support those in the music community with the greatest need. To establish the fund, both the Recording Academy and MusiCares have contributed an initial donation of $1 million each, totaling $2 million. Additionally, all Recording Academy Chapters have committed to fundraising in their local communities. Further updates and announcements will be made in the coming days. Harvey Mason Jr., Chair and Interim CEO of the Recording Academy, says:

“Event cancellations are at unprecedented levels and the situation therefore requires an unprecedented response. Many people in the industry are now in crisis, not knowing what the future holds or having to deal with dire commercial realities. We are asking the entire industry to stand with us to support the musicians, artists and professionals who are the bedrock and the future of our music community.”

“It’s in times like these that many of us turn to music. Music can help us cope, and has the power to bring us together during a time when many of us might feel isolated. We encourage people everywhere to embrace the music industry which needs our help in these uncertain times.”

Steve Boom, MusiCares Chair, adds:

“The music industry is built on the work of musicians, artists, and music professionals. It is in times like these, that the industry needs to come together to support those who are struggling, particularly those who rely on touring incomes to survive. We know this fund will need to be significant. We will not be able to do it alone, and that’s why we are asking the entire music community including labels, streaming services, and anyone who is able to join us in this important effort. We’re all in when the good times roll, and it’s important that we’re all in when times are tough, too.”

Jhené Aiko scores the highest-selling album!

Grammy®-nominated multi-platinum singer/songwriter Jhené Aiko scores the highest-selling album of her career as CHILOMBO debuts at #1 on the Billboard Top R&B Albums chart, and #2 on the Billboard 200, on first week overall consumption of over 152,000 units. CHILOMBO ranks as the biggest album debut from a female R&B artist since Beyoncé’s Lemonade (April 2016).

The chart-topping CHILOMBO, released March 6th via Artclub/Def Jam Recordings, arrives on the strength of over 170MM global streams in its debut week and over cumulative streams over 700 million to date for its five massive advance tracks, with

● “B.S.” (feat. H.E.R.) – over 25 million first week (released March 5th)
● “Triggered (Freestyle)” – over 330 million streams, certified RIAA platinum
● “None Of Your Concern” (feat. Big Sean) – over 127 million streams
● “Pu$$y Fairy (OTW)” – over 94 million streams
● “Happiness Over Everything (H.O.E.)” (feat. Future, Miguel) – over 25 million streams

CHILOMBO’s massive debut streams makes Jhene the top UMG artist for the week at Apple Music in the U.S., and the #1 female artist for the week at YouTube.

CHILOMBO is Jhené’s fourth top 10 long-player as a soloist, following her RIAA gold debut EP Sail Out (#8, 2013), Souled Out (#3, 2014), and the RIAA gold Trip (#5, 2017). She also visited the Top 10 as one-half of the Twenty88 duo, alongside Big Sean, reaching #5 with their self-titled album on Def Jam in 2016.

Jhené, who has reached #1 trending on Twitter in the U.S. and worldwide three times since the release of CHILOMBO, has gained 500,000 new Instagram followers in the last 30 days. She is currently the #1 Female Artist on YouTube for the week of March 6-12th with over 21.5 million views.

CHILOMBO proclaims the artist’s full name, Jhené Aiko Efuru CHILOMBO, as it celebrates her coming into her own personal power. The initial jam sessions where she freestyled the lyrics to each song, took place on The Big Island of Hawaii where Jhené’s great grandmother was born. Jhené was inspired by the beauty and power of the island’s volcanoes, having visited throughout the years. Chilombo means wild beast. The volcano is symbolic of the beautiful, yet powerful beast. Jhené Aiko is Chilombo. In contrast to her 2017 album, Trip, which intricately detailed the process of grieving, CHILOMBO finds Jhené embracing her strength and power, and coming into her confidence as a woman, a creator and a healer. She has always embraced magic in her particular brand of soulful, trippy, ethereal R&B, but now on CHILOMBO she has taken it all to another level.

About Jhené Aiko:
Grammy®-nominated singer/songwriter Jhené Aiko was already more than a decade deep in the music game when she arrived at Def Jam in 2011; having been featured on singles, albums and mix tapes by A-listers Kendrick Lamar, Wale, Big Sean, Logic, J. Cole, Drake, and many more. Jhené made history when Sail Out, her phenomenal #1 debut EP of 2013, became the biggest-selling EP in Def Jam history. The EP’s success was propelled by her sizzling BET Award-winning and Grammy®-nominated #1 platinum crossover hit “The Worst” (over 117 million combined YouTube views to date). The EP also included “Bed Peace” featur­ing Childish Gambino (over 37 million combined YouTube views); “3:16am” (over 14 million combined YouTube views); plus collaborations with Kendrick Lamar and Vince Staples. The momentum kept up when Jhené joined Drake on his 39-city North American Would You Like A Tour? She appeared with him on NBC’s Saturday Night Live, which led to her own solo dates on Conan, The Late Show with David Letterman, and The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Jhené’s brilliant debut album of 2014, Souled Out entered the Soundscan R&B chart at #1, containing “The Pressure,” described by Billboard as “an otherworldly neck-snapper” (over 14 million YouTube views to date). The release of Souled Out was celebrated on NBC’s The Today Show. In 2016, Jhené collaborated with fellow multi-platinum Def Jam superstar Big Sean on their debut duo project, TWENTY88. The duo made their tv debut on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!. Jhené’s critically hailed second album, Trip, was released September 2017, entering the Soundscan R&B chart at #1. Her third album, CHILOMBO (March 2020) acknowledged her full name, Jhené Aiko Efuru Chilombo, and contained the singles “Triggered” (RIAA platinum), “None Of Your Concern,” “Pu$$y Fairy (OTW),” “Happi­ness Over Everything (H.O.E.)” (featuring Future, Miguel), and “B.S.” (featuring H.E.R.).
