New Music: Jhené Aiko – ‘Maniac’

Jhené Aiko is a “Maniac” on her new single, which is filled with unapologetic raunch.

“Hop on a dick like a maniac,” she raps from the outset. “Head like a brainiac / Got to read the signs like a zodiac / I’m a low-key freak, you don’t know me, yet.”

The daring lines don’t end there, as she makes references to sex and later, marriage.

“Good head got a little bite to it,” she raps. “Little booty got a little bounce to it / We can go all damn night to it / Wife that, go on, throw rice to it.”

Although she rhymes to start the track, “Maniac” also includes some of Jhené’s trademark vocals, as she sings: “You just made love to a maniac. Do you want to fuck with a maniac? Make you fall in love with a maniac.”

Released after a video teaser, “Maniac” is likely the first single from Aiko’s forthcoming Souled Out follow-up. Jhené and her beau Big Sean are also planning a TWENTY88 sequel for 2017.
