Jhene Aiko Addresses Mixed Emotions In "Triggered (Freestyle)" Video

Jhene Aiko didn't hold anything back on her latest single, "Triggered (Freestyle)." The songstress dropped the new track and accompanying music video on Wednesday (May 8), where she opened up about a recent break-up and the variety of emotions that have subsequently followed.

"I'm triggered, when I see your face / Triggered, when I hear your name / Triggered, I am not ok / You need to stay out my way," she sings. The three-minute video shows Aiko standing atop a massive canyon. She appears to  be staring straight ahead as if she were addressing her ex-lover face-to-face.

Ahead of the track and video's release, Aiko posted a short note on social media. "One night I was so deep in my feelings, I was afraid of what I might do," she wrote. "I didn't want to revert to the same bad habits that have set me back time and time again. I realized that instead of running away from my emotions... I needed to sit with them, express myself and say whatever came to mind. It was healing to say the least... and now I feel a bit more free."

Many Twitter users speculated both the note and song were about her recent break-up with Big Sean. The singer previously responded to one of Sean's Instagram posts, stating, "I love you beyond measure. Even tho I get big mad and u trigger the f**k out of me. U make me feel. And I appreciate that." Aiko has not confirmed who "Triggered" is about.

DJ Khaled Drops "Weather The Storm" Video Starring Meek Mill And Lil Baby

At this point, saying "another one" is redundant and exhausting. With that being said, DJ Khaled dropped another music video from his recently released album, Father of Asahd. The new visuals were for "Weather the Storm," starring Meek Mill and Lil Baby.

The black-and-white video shows the trio sharing a powerful message in front of a church choir. Both Meek and Lil Baby remind fans of the hurdles they had to jump over to make it to their spot. "I went from licks to most wanted to the top of the Forbes/F**ked up the trenches/I weather the storm/Young living legend, I be on that sh*t that these n***as ain't on," Meek spits.

As previously mentioned, "Weather the Storm" is the latest single to receive video treatment from Khaled's 11th studio album. The mega-producer previously dropped the videos for "Wish Wish," starring Cardi B and 21 Savage, the Nipsey Hussle and John Legend-assisted single, "Higher," "Just Us" with SZA, "Celebrate" featuring Travis Scott and Post Malone, and "Jealous" with Chris Brown, Lil Wayne, and Big Sean.

Aretha Franklin's Niece Discovers Handwritten Will Under Couch Cushions

Aretha Franklin's niece, Sabrina Owens, was sorting through her aunt's personal belongings when she discovered three handwritten wills scattered throughout her Oakland County, Michigan home, The Associated Press reports. It was originally believed that Franklin didn't leave a will behind.

Owens reportedly found one of the wills, which was written in 2010, under couch cushions. The other two, written in 2014, she came across in a locked cabinet. All three of the wills were filed in a probate court in Oakland County.

In the documents, Franklin requested that her son, Kecalf Franklin, be the personal representative of her estate, although he previously handed the reigns over to Owens. The 2014 document details which assets should go to which relative.

A statement from Owens said, "She remains neutral and wishes that all parties involved make wise choices on behalf of their mother, her rich legacy, the family and the Aretha Franklin estate."

It's been nearly one year since Aretha Franklin passed away in Aug. 2018. The legendary musician was 76 years old at the time of her death.

A hearing to confirm the validity of the wills is scheduled for June 12.
