Jhené Aiko isn’t just the Los Angeles stoner chick who Drake had sing the hook on “From Time” or Childish Gambino tweets beats to; she’s also the next great hope for women in hip hop. And though she’s not a rapper herself, her dainty song birding provides the perfect accompaniment for harsh rhyme spitting, taking the edge off otherwise grating rap.

Example: Her just-dropped “Stay Ready (What A Life)” single featuring Kendrick Lamar, which arrives a day before her Sail Out EP.

Pre-order Sail Out via iTunes here, the project also features Ab-Soul, Vince Staples, and Childish Gambino.
