New Releases Listen: Jhené Aiko – “Maniac” Posted by Haley • November 17, 2016

After testing the waters with Big Sean for their “TWENTY88” project (which by the way will be getting a sequel), Jhené Aiko returns to the solosphere with “Maniac.”

“Maniac” is the first taste of Aiko‘s own forthcoming full-length project, which will arrive sometime in 2017. Unlike her previous laid-back releases, Maniac hears the kinky side of Aiko atop a trap-laden beat, which chops and screws in all the right places.

The single’s cover art, in which Aiko is bond in ropes, translates to its Steven Taylor-directed visuals. Per her interview with Billboard, it is inspired by a form of Japanese bondage called shibari. Hear the track below!
