TWENTY88’s self-titled debut was released in April 2016 and debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard 200.
“Collabing with [Jhené] is like one of the easiest things ever,” Sean previously told Hot 97. “When we both are in the mood, ’cause when you in a relationship, it’s like sometimes you can be irritated with each other.”
On Friday, Sean and Queen Naija dropped their new collaboration “Hate Our Love,” which uses the same Bobby Glenn sample as JAY-Z’s “Song Cry.”
In addition to a new TWENTY88 album, Jhené is gearing up to sing “America the Beautiful” at the Super Bowl on Sunday, Feb. 13.
