New Music: Jhené Aiko feat. Chris Brown - 'Hello Ego (Don't Stop)'
Jhené Aiko and Chris Brown reunite. Following collaborations like “Drunk Texting,” “Post to Be,” and “Wishing Remix,” the two stars join forces once again on “Hello Ego (Don’t Stop).”
Aiko takes top billing on this particular track, while harmonizing about her personal struggles as the family breadwinner. “I know I’m supposed to be about my money,” she sings. “‘Cause that baby gotta eat when she get hungry / And anything my family need they get it from me / So when shit get ugly, I can’t stop, I won’t stop, I don’t stop.”
Breezy comes in for a self-aware and candid verse that explores his public persona. “They call me crazy,” he sings. “It’s okay, girl, I got issues / I wear my heart like my tattoos, I share my tears with tissues.” Later, he affirms: “I’ve been up, down, up, up, back down / But I won’t break down.”
Once the track was released, Brown sent his stamp of approval via Instagram. Sharing a screenshot of the new cut, he added: “Time to fuck the summer up sis.”
