EDITORS’ NOTES

Jhené Aiko and Big Sean got themselves a room. The L.A. singer/songwriter and Detroit MC pair up for a concept robo-R&B record that sweats sensuality. The pair circle each other with purred vocals and firm, salacious verses as they timeline a very modern relationship set to hypnotic beats, bracing trap drums, and some pomped-up soul. It’s a seductive cocktail: “Push It” is deliriously steamy, “2 Minute Warning” brings in K-Ci & Jojo to heighten the sexual tension, while the clever “Talk Show” circulates in a hazy mist of flutes and vengeful put-downs.

TITLE TIME

About TWENTY88

A one-off collaboration that turned into a supergroup side project, TWENTY88 consists of singer Jhené Aiko and rapper Big Sean. The duo first collaborated in 2013 on the Big Sean single "Beware," which also featured Lil Wayne. The two joined forces again in 2015 for another Big Sean single, "I Know." TWENTY88 launched with an announcement in March of 2016, with the group's self-titled EP released that April by GOOD Music. The release was a conceptual EP focusing on a fictional couple's relationship and featured a guest appearance from the R&B duo K-Ci & JoJo. ~ David Jeffries
