    Jhene Aiko's long-awaited debut album, Souled Out is dropping next week, and the free spirited singer has gained a considerable amount of hype around the release.

    Jhene Aiko is definitely on the cusp of something big, thanks to her Sail Out EP really putting her on the map, plus collaborations with some of rap's biggest stars. Having Drake, Childish Gambino, and even Pusha T as supporters doesn't hurt either (Pusha said in a recent interview that he's only been listening to Jhene).

    Stunning. If Jhene Aiko wasn't already a household name, she ought to be by now. The 25-year-old singer has appeared on numerous hip-hop tracks throughout the year, most notably Drake's "From Time", J. Cole's "Sparks Will Fly", and Big Sean’s radio smash "Beware". Sail Out* is Jhene’s first major label EP, and what a debut it is. The seven-track Extended Play is smoked out, dreamy and romantic.

    Jhene Aiko's debut album impacted last year, and while she scored a hit (and Grammy nomination) with lead single, "The Worst", most of her recent radio play has come from her feature on Omarion's surprise smash, "Posed To Be". Jhene decided to go off-brand with her contribution, introducing a playful side of herself we usually don't see on record. One line from her verse in particular inspired a double take from fans -- “Might let your boy chauffeur me, but he got to eat the booty like groceries.”

In a new interview with Rap-Up, the talented singer speaks on her forthcoming album, Souled Out, and how she thinks of Drake as her "musical soulmate."

    Jhene Aiko's come-up certainly accelerated this year. With some big features on tracks from Big Sean and Drake, Jhene got her name out in a big way, and the projections for Sail Out reflect that. Aiko is set to move about 25-30k units of her debut EP, which is pretty impressive for that type of release, and definitely looks good for her album dropping next year. Listen to "Wth," her collaboration with Ab-Soul below.
