Because any great R&B singer should be able to spit a few bars when necessary, right? This week Jhené Aiko debuted an alternate version of her Sail Out track “Stay Ready (What a Life),” which finds her showing off some of her rhyming skills.
Her alter ego J Henny, or J Hennessy, replaces Kendrick Lamar’s verse on the original track, adding some fire. The 26-year-old singer recently told Rap-Up that J Henny had a bit of Sasha Fierce in her.
“She still sings, but she’s more aggressive,” Aiko explained. “She likes to really talk a lot of sh– and talk about things that a lot of R&B singers don’t talk about.”
