Jhené Aiko has returned with her third studio album, Chilombo, named after her legal surname. The word, which means “wild beast,” is filled with Aiko’s classic R&B sensibilities, diving into the usage of sound healing therapy by using crystal alchemy singing bowls throughout the record.

On the 20-song effort, which follows 2017’s Trip, a heavy repertoire of hip-hop and R&B talent is featured. Future, Miguel, Ab-Soul, Big Sean, H.E.R., Nas, John Legend, Ty Dolla $ign, and more appear on the record, including her father Dr. Chill. Produced almost entirely by frequent collaborators Lejkeys and production duo Fisticuffs, Aiko swoons with blissful energy, delivering sun-drenched sounds that continue to showcase her ethereal aural style.

Speaking to Billboard about the project, Aiko notes “I’m still in transition, but I’m still me.” She continues:

I still love to write all types of songs and listen to all types of music, but Chilombo definitely has a lot more acoustic instruments because I wanted it to be music that you can feel. You can hear what the mic was picking up in the room. Everyone was playing actual instruments, [and] those resonate with you differently than digital. Chilombo is all of my projects that I put out prior to this combined. This is the baby — but it’s the evolved version.

You can listen to Chilombo below. Aiko will embark on The Magic Hour Tour alongside Queen Naija and Ann Marie on May 1 in Boston.

For more new music, Megan Thee Stallion just dropped her SUGA EP.
