Jhené Aiko Addresses Big Sean Breakup, Readies New Album
Jhené Aiko is done with the drama.
The singer, who ended her relationship with Big Sean last year, is speaking out for the first time about her breakup with the Detroit rapper. The Shade Room reposted a clip of her in the studio, which prompted a reader to write, “Well. Big Sean… she finna snitch.”
Responding to the comment, Jhené revealed that she and her ex are on good terms. “Me and Sean are good. i’ve got tons of love for him,” she said.
She also revealed that her next album, her first since 2017’s Trip, will consist of all freestyles. “my next album is all freestyles where i touch on many subjects and relationships… past, present and future,” she continued. “I know you all love the drama and would like to think everything i do or say is about him, but i’ve been through plenty of other things and situations that i pull inspiration from when i sit down to create a song. have a good day.”
Jhené has been in the studio and recently completed three freestyles. “2019. speaking truth only. you can not control me,” she said via Instagram Stories.
In December, she offered the first taste of that with her “Wasted Love Freestyle,” on which she addressed a lost love. “I loved you before I even knew why,” she sings on the stripped-down track. “How did we get away from love? / How did I get away from us?”
Following their breakup last year, Jhené covered up all her tattoos, including a large portrait of Sean’s face on her left bicep, with a fire-breathing dragon and a solar system.
“i covered ALL my tats w/ a big ass Dragon w/ a Phoenix wing breathing life and light into a new galaxy. NEW ART! NO BEEF! ALL LOVE!” she tweeted.
Sean has not addressed the breakup, but he did open up about his battle with mental health and the journey to “rediscover” himself. “I realized it all started with me and I had to analyze myself. I couldn’t point the finger at anybody else,” he said earlier this week. “I started realizing that you can’t give or depend on somebody for love or a good time if you can’t give it to your self.”
