Jhene Aiko released her new EP, Sail Out, today (November 11). In a recent interview with Noisey, the singer spoke about the recording process for one of the videos for the project, “Bed Peace,” which features Childish Gambino.
“We were HIGH,” said Aiko when asked about the video. “There’s a part in the video where we pass the vape. It’s called a Pax and it’s a very discrete vaporizer. You can’t even see the vapes. It was really funny because I had drinks out for all the extras, smoking. We were just having a lot of fun. He gets like that when he’s high. [Laughs]. We were both being very awkward. After we hit that couple of times, we were like, “We’re in bed together all day? Wait a minute.”
The interview turned to the subject of drug use, as Jhene described her habits. “I like weed,” she said. “There was a part of my life where I wake and baked but right now, I don’t smoke every day. I think I’m becoming more of a responsible adult. I had a G-Pen at one point. I go through phases. Now, I like this vaporizer but you put the weed in there so it’s not the wax. I’ve also gone back to papers, like raw papers. Literally I can smoke three days ago and feel a little high. My tolerance right now is really low.”
Jhene Aiko is currently on tour with Drake as part of Drizzy’s “Would You Like A Tour?” During the interview, she described the dynamic between the men and women on tour. “They’re all silly boys, like ‘Oh. You guys are crazy!'” she said. “There are women that travel with the tour like Drake’s vocal coach, and there’s a tailor. Older women. We kind of bond like, ‘Anybody got the Midol?’ They’re not used to that, so they like having a young girl around. Me and my road manager don’t like going out so [the boys] say, ‘You guys don’t like us. You don’t have fun with us.’ No, that’s just not our thing. Like what are we gonna do? We’re not going to be your wing girls. You know how boys are. They flirt with everyone. We’re the consistent ones then they bring girls around and we’re like, ‘Oh see! Exactly.’ What if we were taking you guys seriously?”
Jhene also released her video for “The Worst,” today, which can be seen below:
