Performers Jhené Aiko and Big Sean have formed a new duo called Twenty88.The singer and rapper took to social media yesterday evening (Sunday, March 27) to make the surprise announcement. They also launched Twitter and Instagram pages under the name @TWENTY88. Both of their Twitter biographies now read “1/2 of TWENTY88”.
They posted what appears to be an album cover, which shows a close-up of both their faces together, featured as the image for this very article. It is unclear if they plan to release the entire project on Friday, April 1, or just a single. The artwork was accompanied by two video teasers announcing their collaboration. In one clip, the duo sit in the back of a chauffeured car, both wearing furs, while Aiko dons an orange wig.
The two have previously collaborated on songs together, including “Beware” and “I Know” for their respective solo albums. The name TWENTY88 is derived from their birthdays. Both were born in 1988 and just turned 28 years old. Aiko was by Sean’s side as he celebrated his birthday on Friday.
