Jhené Aiko – Triggered (Freestyle) | Music Video
Jhené Aiko has released a new song “Triggered (Freestyle)”. The track is one of the Grammy-nominated artist’s first songs since her 2017 album Trip and takes the form of a freestyle in which she opens up about her confused feelings following a split with Big Sean. These two previously dated.
“Knew from the beginning, you’d ruin everything you do it every time / you are my enemy / you are no friend of mine”, she sings her frustration. “This ain’t the way that you want it / Might catch a case in this b***h / Don’t let me catch you face to face in this b***h“, the Trip singer continues.
Prior to dropping the track, Aiko took to social media to post a note about the meaning of “Triggered”. “One night I was so deep in my feelings, I was afraid of what I might do”, Aiko wrote in the post. “I didn’t want to revert to the same bad habits that have set me back time and time again. I realized that instead of running away from my emotions… I needed to sit with them, express myself and say whatever came to mind. It was healing to say the least… and now I feel a bit more free”.
Jhené is cooking up a new album for this year. Stay tuned and check out the music video for “Triggered (Freestyle) below.
