You love Jhene Aiko (pronounced juh-nay ai-ko), even if you don’t already know it. After lending her soulful voice to Drake’s Nothing Was The Same album on the track “From Time” and performing with the beloved rapper on Saturday Night Live earlier this year, the 26-year-old hit it big with her own chart-topping single “The Worst,” a moody record that goes perfectly with a late-night drive. On the eve of her newest summer single “Love & Die,” Aiko showcases five effortless cover-up options for beach season.
