Jhene Aiko – Mirrors (video)

A lot of people are comparing Jhene with The Weeknd. Though my initial reaction was to raise an eyebrow and move on with my life I do now see where angeli287 is coming from. They are at similar stages in their careers and enjoy almost universal acclaim across the blogs for making what is considered organic, original RnB.

Both also seem to be regular enough with their releases/appearances/interviews to maintain a buzz, but sporadic enough that their fans can still pretend they are their own little secret. The Weeknd certainly can’t be considered underground anymore and once her Def Jam debut drops next year you feel it won’t be long before Jhene also tastes some of that mainstream success.
