In 2002 Jhené Aiko featured in a ton of B2K songs and videos before recording her debut album that her record label never ended up releasing. In the end, Jhené asked to be released from the label, she focused on school and had a daughter before returning to music five years later, releasing her 'Sailing soul(s)' mixtape, then her 'Sail Out' mixtape – and now Jhené has released her debut album 'Souled Out' after signing with No I.D's Artium Records imprint through Def Jam.
