It’s no secret that Jhene Aiko has been quite the busy gal these days. Appearing on SNL with rapper Drake in January as well as posing for a sexy photo-shoot for GQ only last month, the 26-year-old R&B soulstress has recently been making her talk-show rounds in lieu of her upcoming full-length debut Souled Out (out this summer). On Monday, the R&B starlet sang her Sail Out single “The Worst,” on the Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Sultry as ever, the barefoot Aiko mesmerized the crowd and even Ellen herself, who called her one of “the fastest rising stars in R&B.” And, honestly, after the stellar year Aiko has been having, who could possibly argue with that?
