It’s a moment we’ve been waiting excitedly for since a snippet of the video was released all the way in March. Now with no further ado’s, two weeks after her song dedication to her brother, Jhene Aiko makes true of her word to “not give up”.
Produced by long-time collaborator Fisticuffs, the same man we can also thank for Miguel‘s “Arch and Point”, the minimalistic yet progressive number is wonderfully suited tothis musical beauty’s voice and all-round sound.
The video sees the Def Jam singer go from a hauntingly depressing cabin to the eery atmosphere of the woods to the loneliness of the desert where it all ends on a dark note. Directed by Topshelf Junior, the cinematic and musical excellence of 3.16AM is clearly why Def Jam snapped her up last year.
Make sure you keep your ears and eyes peeled for her eagerly anticipated debut album, Sailing Souls.
