Okay. You guys. Are you familiar/obsessed with gorgeous songstress Jhené Aiko yet? If not, I’ve got some news for ya: you will be soon (especially after today’s favorite things, #duh). TBH, I could stare at photos of the bananas-ly beautiful singer for days (see also: months) and wonder how a human being’s skin could be so amazing. Also, feel free to discuss her fantastic hair. And then there’s those soulfully smooth pipes that sort of give me an Aaliyah-in-a-church-choir vibe complete with heart-melting-inducing riffs and the insane ability to make sadness sound so damn sexy. Like, WHUT? How’d you do that, girl? Is it the shimmering synth and bass combo? Decide for yourself AKA check out her recently-released “Mirrors” black-and-white music vid in which Aiko gets her gorgeous Black Swan ballerina on and rocks a serious cat-eye. Can y’all even imagine an Aiko x Frank Ocean moody collab, because I sure can, though I’m not so sure my heart strings could handle all of the lush lovelorn loveliness. Aiko’s 2013 full-length release is on its way, but until then, her Sailing Soul(s) mixtape, will get you in the mood for Valentine’s Day, which for me will likely = another me, myself and my cat/a carton of Camel Lights kind of time. So fun!!! :'( As for the good news… it’s time for another Favorite Things.
