Jhené Aiko Won’t Be Releasing Any Music This Month

Los Angeles native Jhené Aiko was one of the first celebrities to send condolences after the passing of Nipsey Hussle, so it’s no surprise that in light of the rapper’s death, Aiko is delaying the release of new music in honor of her late friend and collaborator.

She took to Instagram on Monday to reply to a fan’s comment who was asking for some new music from the singer. In a response captured by the people over at The Shade Room, Jhené explained that she will be suspending the upcoming release of any planned music, “out of respect for Nipsey.”

“Out of respect for Nipsey, I will be postponing the release of the new music I planned on releasing this month, until I feel the time is right,” Aiko wrote. “I want to take this time to remember and reflect on the life of the legendary Nipsey Hussle.”

Jhené is from the same neighborhood as Nipsey, so it’s to be expected that she holds him to the highest regard and it’s no surprise that she’s making sure to give the proper respect before dropping some new music.

The Slauson native is joining other artists in their mission to wait the appropriate amount of time before releasing any new music of their own. Both Schoolboy Q and YG announced their plans to put music on hold for a little while as the world mourns Nipsey, which seems to have everyone following suit.
