Jhené, Teyana, Summer Walker, and Kehlani have an important and long overdue roundtable discussion about the lack of respect and recognition for female R&B artists.
“R&B is still not nearly as big as hip-hop: It has a market share of 7.43% of overall album consumption units so far in 2020, compared with 19.17% for hip-hop, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. Yet it’s growing — by 4.64% in market share compared with this time last year. (Hip-hop’s market share grew less than 1% in the same period.) And as the genre catches up commercially, it’s having a renaissance artistically — one that’s largely powered by female singer-songwriters who are reimagining and reinterpreting its sounds for a new generation of listeners. Of the 14 releases that have reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Top R&B Albums chart in 2020, nine of them have been from women.”

10.20.17 was National Day on Writing and Jhené Aiko took a TRIP to her old school “Baldwin Hills Elementary”. She visited a lucky class and her favorite teacher (4th and 5th grade) Ms. Joy. She talked to the students about the impact writing has had on her life and shared that her favorite poem is: Nobody by Emily Dickinson (which inspired 2 songs off of her album “Nobody” and “Oblivion”. A few students volunteered to share their poems with Jhené and she even read one of hers to them. She also sang “Promises” to them, with Nami who she brought along for the experience. It was very, very sweet.
