Jhené Aiko is a femme fatale in the video for her Gallant collaboration, “Skipping Stones.” Check out the video above.
DJ Drama’s remix to “Wishing” doubles down on the features.
DJ Drama’s “Wishing” originally featured Chris Brown, Skeme, and Lyquin, but only Chris remains for the remix, which adds the all-star cast of Trey Songz, Tory Lanez, Jhené Aiko, and Fabolous. Like Khaled’s “Hold You Down,” it makes a solid argument for the R&B crew track, giving each of the singers their own verse, while Fab remains the sole rapper of the bunch, opening things up before things get syrupy and melodic.
The original track appears on Drama’s Quality Street Music 2, and has been getting regular radio spins, so this new mix should only push it further up the charts.
Who’s got the best verse?

From her latest EP 213, Mila J drops the summertime-approved visual for “Kickin Back.”
Much like Fresh Prince and DJ Jazzy Jeff’s “Summertime”, Mila J uses a sample of Kool & The Gang’s “Summer Madness” to saturate our eardrums with feelings of carefree summertime fun.
In the clip, Mila and her girls ride out to enjoy a sunny day in L.A., “I’m kickin’ back and I’m good,” she declares while kickin’ up some smooth choreography.
Check out the cameo from sister, Miyoko.
Diamonds & Pearls – Prince & The New Power Generation
Yesterday, the world took a devastating loss as Prince Rogers Nelson, better known as Prince, has passed away. Many artists and fans alike have been inspired by his greatness, especially Mila J and sister, Miyoko. As children, they were granted the opportunity to be apart of his “Diamonds & Pearls” music video (They’re sitting on the lap of Rosie Gaines). Mila J even inspired the Purple One, as he sampled her song, “Blinded” on a track titled, “U Know” from the 2014 album, Art Official Age. Mila’s love for Prince is well documented. We join the world as we pray for his soul, his loved ones and his fans across the world. Prince, you will be greatly missed!
“Everybody that knows me [knows Prince is] the ultimate artist to me. Like, growing up that’s who I listened to. I’ve always just been obsessed with Prince or any project that he even touches, from Vanity 6 to Apollonia, just everything. It still hasn’t really sunken in yet, so I’m still trying to register it.” – Mila J (On Prince sampling her music).

Today, Jhené Aiko comes through with the official visual for her song, “B’s & H’s,” which debuted back in January on Soulection’s Beats 1 show. In the video, Jhené takes the sultry Fisticuffs-produced track to new heights as grainy close-ups and bedroom filters zero in on the singer as she seductively dances her way through the track. Of course, the song is still a staunch warning to girls who are “gonna fuck around and find out” with a guy that’s cheating on them all. It’s a simple video that’s expertly done by Jhené so that you can’t help but be transfixed by the song.
Last week, the world actually learned that Jhené is no longer a single woman herself. Producer Dot Da Genius revealed the ultimate surprise to everyone with an Instagram post confirming that the two are actually husband and wife. Check out the new video for “B’s & H’s” above.
Inspirational artist Mali Music teams up with R&B beauty Jhené Aiko in the tender video for their collaborative song, “Contradiction.”
The smoky ballad appears on the soundtrack to Spike Lee’s controversial flick, Chi-Raq. The Davis Silis-directed visual features the pair in a swanky club supporting each other after experiencing heartbreak in their respective relationships. The clip is intercut with young clubgoers disappearing and leaving chalk-outlined bodies behind.
“Every so often music videos can stand for something special and important,” Mali told The FADER about the video. “Have we become so numb to the senseless violence and other nonsense in this world that people can quickly disappear from our lives we just move on without missing a beat? It’s time we wake up and show each other how much we love each other before it’s too late.”
Watch Mali Music and Jhené Aiko spread peace, love and harmony in their new video above.
