The 20-track LP includes a dynamic list of guest features from H.E.R., Future, Miguel, Ab-Soul, Nas, John Legend, and Ty Dolla $ign. Plus, Aiko’s on-again/off-again boyfriend Big Sean.

Aiko addressed her 9.3 million Instagram followers, thanking them and her team for the support through this process.

“I am so honored to be surrounded by a team of family and friends who aren’t afraid to step back during my eruptions, who support and join me on all my adventures.. who challenge me, who comfort and support me… and who give me my space, but never leave me alone long enough to self destruct. I love you and I love this journey… it has truly been the reward.”

The Los Angeles native broke out on the scene in 2013 appearing on (now boyfriend) Big Sean’s “Beware.” Her first project The Sail Out EP yielded classic songs to date, including “3:16AM”, and “The Worst.”
