As a huge fan for years, I can only elate in the magic that is Jhene Aiko’s debut album Souled Out, released yesterday 9/9/2014. Her sound, her style, her message are all things I think are important and excessively relevant in today’s day and age. She’s done an incredible job staying true to her own sense of self through her lyrics while attempting to inspire others to do the same. This song, W.A.Y.S., an acronym for Why Aren’t You Smiling (something her brother, who passed away, used to ask people constantly) is probably one of my favorites on the album.
Listen for yourself:
My favorite part of the album is the Thank You section, here:
Hopefully I’ve convinced you to buy the album. You can do it here.
