Jhené Aiko

As she prepares to hit the road, Jhené Aiko has shared some footage from her rehearsals. Joined by her guitarist Jeff, the L.A. songstress performs an acoustic rendition of her Cocaine 80s-assisted single “To Love & Die” as well as her Sail Out cuts “Stay Ready (What a Life)” and “The Worst.”

Jhené will join The Weeknd on his four-city “King of the Fall” tour, which kicks off September 19 at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.

Prior to the tour launch, she will release her full-length debut Souled Out. Just last week, she dropped her new single “The Pressure.”

See her stripped-down set below.

    It’s ridiculous that she sounds so flawless in small places like this where there’s no one watching and in small venus. She sounds so identical to the original track, but as SOON as she gets on TV or in front of an major audience her nerves get the best of her. She’s been around for quite some time and I don’t know how or why her management hasn’t worked on this redundant issue.

    @Slim, I’m almost positive it’s not nerves. She is an intimate type of artist. She doesn’t need to have that much attention all at once because it takes away from the intimacy she feels with the crowd. She thrives off of that intimacy so it’s more of a vibe issue than it is nerves. That’s what her fans who have followed her for years love about her so I doubt she’ll ever decide to change that about herself.
    Much love.

    @Slim, Also, she didn’t publicly announce this, but it was confirmed that at the BET awards she was recovering from a sore throat.

    So is her whole tour set going to be acoustic? That’s kinda dope.

    I agree with Slim. She sounds DOPE here.. but in front of a big audience she kinda sucks… :-(

    I’ve seen her live when she opened for Nas and Lauryn Hill, and she was amazing! That’s what turned me on to her, I had never heard of her, and I was like who is this chick, she’s dope! So maybe it was a bad day when ya’ll saw her, but she sounds the same to me…
