“Souled Out” singer, Jhene Aiko has just released the visuals for the first single off of her forthcoming album. The single, “3:16AM”, was released earlier this year and the video was supposed to be released on her 24th birthday (March 16) and now we finally have the video to accompany the song.
We’re not too sure what this song is about, but her description of the video alludes to the fact that she may be afraid of selling her soul.
I have really dark thoughts sometimes. The song is me exploring those types of thoughts. People are going to see the video and they are going to be like, ‘she sold her soul’ and it’s like I’m just being honest about the things I think about because I think people ignore them. But ignoring something doesn’t make it disappear, you have to kind of address it and understand [it]. That’s what 3:16 is. The hours of 3 and 5 is when I am really addressing those dark thoughts. There is clarity in those dark moments because you will go there and it comes from a very personal place. When you are true to yourself and honest with yourself, it’s easier for people to connect with you because you are being you.
