  4. Yeahhhhh, the visual direction for this whole era has been a bit by-the-book, which is especially disappointing when Souled Out and Trip are two of my favourite album covers of all time. I like the Chilombo cover but it breaks the ongoing concept of her being a small figure in large surreal scenes.

  5. Love this track, very Kehlani! And can we talk about Miguel with eyeliner? Well, hello.
     
  6. OMG 'Hoe' was how I discovered Jhené back in the day, love the interpolation in this new song! Shen is such a queen!
    Nice to see Mila in the video as well.

  7. Given the lack of physicals, I assume this will be released at midnight EST like her singles?

  10. This is a lovely album. Doesn’t take me on a TRIP the way Trip did, but like all of her music, a few listens will help it seep into my soul. God, I love this woman.
     
  11. B.S. is every-fucking-thing. Ready to listen to whole set!
     
  12. I had my first listen this morning.

    It's for sure a nice album with some real gems, but I don't know that I love it as much as Trip.
    Saying that, Trip definitely grew on me too so there's room for that to change.
     
  13. I love it, but I really miss mixtape Jhené. I was hooked. Some of the magic is not really there for me anymore.

  14. I really want to listen to this as I loved her debut but 20 tracks, really? Sigh. Let me try.
     
  15. Someone obviously never listened to Trip.

  16. I have actually but that's when I started losing a bit of interest in her. New Balance can still make me weep tho!

  17. My problem with the album is the same as it’s been since her full length debut: she often stretches thematic concepts across multiple songs with little sonic or lyrical variation. There’s quite a bit to love here but it feels bogged down by the sheer volume of tracks. Still, B.S. through Happiness Over Everything as well as the one-two punch of Tryna Smoke and Born Tired remind me why I stay perched on her music. When she’s good she really is incredible.
