Friday Night ‘Fro: Jhene Aiko – Trip (Short Film)

Jhene Aiko and Tracy Oliver, co-writer behind Barbershop: Back In Business and the highest grossing comedy of 2017, Girls Trip present a short film about a young woman in search of a replacement that fills the void of love in her life left her by her recently deceased brother. The 23-minute story stars the L.A. singer-songwriter using poetry, a new relationship, drugs, and partying to numb her pain.


With the release of the short film, we get Jhene’s sophomore album comprised of 22 tracks with features from Big Sean (I don’t understand why one of the other features is Twenty88, because that group is comprised of Sean and Jhene. What’s the difference? Sean does more than just one verse on another song?), Dr. Chill, Mali Music, Kurupt, Namiko Love, Swae Lee, and Brandy to enjoy over the weekend.

If you enjoyed Jhene’s acting skills, then you will enjoy her recreation of the Adam Sandler/Drew Brew Barrymore rom-com, 50 First Dates for Trip‘s first single, “While Were Young”.
