Rap-Up TV: Jhené Aiko Calls Drake Her ‘Musical Soulmate’

Jhené Aiko has found her match in Drake. During Power 106’s “Valentine’s Crush” concert in L.A., the “Bed Peace” singer opened up about her connection with the Canadian rapper, who she collaborated and toured with last year.

“I think that he is probably like my musical soulmate,” she told Rap-Up TV. “I just feel like our voices compliment each other, our writing styles, all of that.”

Last month, Jhené joined Drake while performing “From Time” on “SNL.” “I’m not really used to cameras yet and TV performance-type things, so I was just like super nervous,” she admitted. “I think it came out good.”

She also hinted at more collaborations to come. “I would love to do a full project with him. I think that it would be really dope,” revealed Jhené, who’s already had discussions with Drake about a potential album.

Following the success of her EP Sail Out, she is gearing up for the summer release of her full-length debut Souled Out. But unlike her EP, she is not focused on features.

“I just wrote the songs from top to bottom, but if someone hears a song and they feel like they can contribute and it makes sense, then I’ll definitely make room—if they can do it before the summer.”
