After releasing a romantic video for “While We’re Young,” Jhené Aiko returns with the lush ballad “Hello Ego (Don’t Stop)” featuring Chris Brown.
On the song, Aiko is self-reflective as she vows to get her life together so she can feed her baby.
“I know I’m supposed to be about my money,” she sings. “‘Cause that baby gotta eat when she get hungry / And anything my family need they get it from me / So when s— get ugly, I can’t stop, I won’t stop, I don’t stop,” she sings.
Brown comforts Aiko on her problems and reflects on his past relationship woes but vows to never break down, singing, “It’s okay, girl, I got issues / I wear my heart like my tattoos, I share my tears with tissues.” Later, he acknowledges, “It’s me that can’t keep a relationship / You can lose your mind in a glass house / I’ve been up, down, up, up, back down / But I won’t break down.”
This is Breezy and Aiko’s third collaborative song together after “Post to Be,” “Drunk Texting” and “Wishing Remix.” Overall, they make beautiful music together.
There’s no word on Jhené Aiko will release her new solo project. Listen to the song above.
