Jhene Aiko & Willow Smith Talk 'Trip' Tour & May Collab On A Jazz Album
Jhene Aiko just released her latest album 'Trip' and is already gearing up to headline her very own tour with featuring opening acts like Willow Smith, St. Beauty, Kodie Shane, Kitty Cash. Recently, the singer sat down with Willow Smith to talk more about the tour with Billboard. Aiko explained why Willow is the perfect performer to join her on the 'Trip' Tour.
“This time, I want to take the audience on a journey, have them feel what I went through — I want them to think they’re tripping balls,” she explained. “People like Willow and me, we’re super connected to this music and our message. We really want to change the world.”
The two even talk about their common interests in Jazz and even working on a Jazz album while on tour together. “I want to make music. I’ll have a studio on my bus, and she can come through with her guitar,” said Aiko. “I think we should do a jazz album.”
“Let’s! Honestly, we can get a bunch of musicians in a room and just vibe out,” said Smith. The concept is really dope. Until we can get that joint album, you can see these two perform LIVE together on a 14-city tour.
