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.).

Jhené Aiko – CHILOMBO

Grammy®-nominated multi-platinum singer/songwriter Jhené Aiko has confirmed the March 6th release of CHILOMBO, her highly-anticipated third album via Def Jam Recordings

The first three advance single releases from CHILOMBO have tallied over 500 million cumulative global streams – the RIAA platinum certified “Triggered” (with over 300 million streams), “None Of Your Concern” (with over 100 million streams), and “P*$$y Fairy (OTW)“.

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.

For years, Jhené has been studying the practice of sound healing. With CHILOMBO, she has incorporated crystal alchemy singing bowls on every track. This form of sound healing has been found to be both physically and mentally healing on the cellular level. Jhené hopes to introduce her fans to sound as a form of healing through what she calls “modern mantra” as illustrated by the “triggered protection mantra.” 

CHILOMBO follows up the RIAA gold Trip, which debuted on the R&B chart at #1, and instantly became one of the most critically acclaimed releases of 2017. Newsweek called Trip “a beautiful ode to dealing with grief and finally letting go of the past in order to move forward… with a mix of up and downtempo tracks and a plethora of guest appearances from artists like Swae Lee, Big Sean, Kurupt, Dr. Chill, Namiko Love, Mali Music and Brandy, Trip is an album that just about anyone who’s ever lost a loved one can relate to.” 

Trip, a masterwork more than a decade in the making, took listeners through the unique odyssey of love and loss, heartbreak and discovery that Jhené endured over the previous decade, witnessed closely by her loyal fans. It was a tribute to the changes that rocked her life and career – the tragic loss of her brother to cancer in 2012, and her journey to try to manage her grief through relationships, substances and art.  The album spun off a trio of top-selling hit singles through 2017-2018: the Top 10 double-platinum “Sativa” featuring Rae Sremmurd (over 166 million YouTube views); the Top 10 platinum “While We’re Young” (over 59 million combined YouTube views); and the RIAA gold “Never Call Me” featuring Kurupt.

Trip was introduced by a 23-minute short film which Jhené wrote and directed, with help from her friend, screenwriter Tracy Oliver (Girls Trip).  The album’s success led to Jhené’s first 16-city headlining tour of North America in November-December 2017.  It was her first major outing since 2016, when she first joined Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa on their High Road Summer Tour.

2 CHAINZ’ 5th  STUDIO ALBUM ‘RAP OR GO TO THE LEAGUE’ – A&R’d BY LEBRON JAMES – SET FOR MARCH 1ST RELEASE VIA DEF JAM RECORDINGS

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: WATCH THE FIRST TRAILER FOR THE 2 CHAINZ X LEBRON

2 Chainz, the multi-platinum, Grammy Award®-winning MC and “One of the Very Best Rappers Alive” (Noisey), confirms his highly anticipated fifth studio album, RAP OR GO TO THE LEAGUE, A&R’d by LeBron James, is set for a March 1st release via Def Jam Recordings.

The countdown to March 1st is officially on, as Apple Music rolls out the first two trailers for 2 Chainz x LeBron James RAP OR GO TO THE LEAGUE, an exclusive in-depth conversation between two of the biggest titans in their respective fields.  As long time friends and fans of one another, 2 Chainz and LeBron represent the true intersection of music and sports.

WATCH THE SECOND TRAILER HERE: @2Chainz

The title RAP OR GO TO THE LEAGUE challenges the notion that the only way out of the inner city is either to become a rapper or a ball player. (In fact, 2 Chainz has done both, earning a full ride to college for basketball and graduating at the top of his class, and becoming a superstar rapper.) Chainz’ new album – easily his most personal, most lyrical, most soulful to date – flips that trope on its head, celebrating black excellence and focusing on the power of education and entrepreneurship.

The eagerly awaited RAP OR GO TO THE LEAGUE is Chainz’ first official new long-player since his platinum #1 release of 2017, Pretty Girls Like Trap Music. That LP has netted over 2 billion streams after spinning off four consecutive multi-platinum hits: “4 AM” featuring Travis Scott; “It’s A Vibe” featuring Ty Dolla $ign, Trey Songz and Jhene Aiko; “Big Amount” featuring Drake, and “Good Drank” featuring Quavo and Gucci Mane.

She gave you every word you needed to feel good about love and I’m just a familiar voice in a brand new setting.” The song debuted today as Zane Lowe’s “World Record on Apple Music’s Beats 1 and can be listened to across DSPs here.
