Jhene Aiko & Big Sean Reunite For A New Single Reminding Us All That Their Love Was Poppin AF

Plus, 8 other tracks you should add to your weekend playlist ASAP.

Culture & Entertainment

The internet recently learned that Big Sean made Jhene Aiko orgasm nine times in one day and all I have to say is, Lord I see what you've done for others…and I humbly come to you hoping that I, too, can receive this blessing in this lifetime.

Friday, Jhene Aiko dropped her latest single, "None Your Concern", which featured a surprise, must-hear verse from her (ex?) lover Big Sean that gave us all of the feels and got our captions ready AF for winter. The couple, who was linked romantically on-and-off for three years, called it quits in March; but according to the lyrics to their latest singles, they're having a pretty hard time staying away from one another.

Along with the soundtrack to every hopeless romantic's life, there were a few other bops that were released recently that you need to add to your playlist ASAP and you know xo has you covered, sis. Scroll below for 8 songs you need to slide into your rotation expeditiously.

Jhené Aiko - "None Of Your Concern"

Call me ambitious, but I'm seeing a TWENTY88 reunion coming soon and I'm hoping that these two are collaborating on more than just a new album *insert emoji eyes*.

Megan Thee Stallion x VickeeLo – "Ride Or Die"

Summer is long-gone but the block is still hot and Megan Thee Stallion and VickeeLo's new track for the Queen and Slim soundtrack is proof that it's not time to put our knees up for winter retirement just yet.

Doja Cat - "Cyber Sex" 

Earlier this year, Doja Cat showed love to our cellulite and reminded us that we are juicy AF and last week, she released her debut album, Hot Pink, with features from Smino, Gucci Mane, and Tyga.

Tory Lanez and T-Pain - "Jerry Sprunger"

Friday, Tory Lanez released his highly-anticipated album, Chixtape 5, and enlisted some of our favorite artists to remix pretty much every song from our childhood.

Ama Lou - "This Town"

After being featured on the Creed II soundtrack, this British singer is making her mark in the industry alongside other U.K. artists like Ella Mai, Jorja Smith, and Mahalia.

KAROL G, Nicki Minaj - "Tusa"

Nicki Minaj may have reneged on her retirement, but we aren't complaining about it. Serving up a dose of Afro-Latina energy you needed today, Spanish artist, Karol G collaborated with our fave for their latest bilingual single, "Tusa".

"Guarding The Gates" (From "Queen & Slim: The Soundtrack")

In her first solo single in five years, Lauryn Hill also decided to lace the Queen and Slim soundtrack with a dose of her flavor. Although the song has been performed live a number of times by the legendary songwriter, the studio-version was debuted for the first time on the soundtrack.

When we think of R&B, we think of soul. Soul, by definition, is emotional or intellectual energy or intensity, especially as revealed in a work of art or an artistic performance. Black people are soul. Everything about us. Our hair. Our energy. Our skin. And, without a doubt, the creativity that courses through every inch of who we are. So, when it comes to our music, spiritual experiences are often what we call them. Makes sense, for there are no other people who remain unbroken the way we do. And every so often, an artist comes along who seems to be the physical manifestation of all that we are.

In xoNecole's Finding Balance, we profile boss women making boss moves in the world and in their respective industries. We talk to them about their business, and most of all, what they do to find balance in their busy lives.

As the summer comes to an end, we must welcome the time for change. Say goodbye to summer and hello to cooler weather! And we know what that means ladies: We have to switch up our fashion trends, how we wear our hair, and even our skincare routines. When it comes to skincare, we as Black queens have to make sure our products are on point for all the seasons. It is crucial for us to protect our blessed and melanated beauty.

You would think with the amount of trends and dollars being put behind beauty brands, that there would be better representation in the medical field to help us understand our skin better from the jump. Unfortunately, Black physicians only make up 5% of the physician population, and if we want to talk about Black dermatologists specifically, well that number is even lower.

It can be more than challenging trying to balance childcare, COVID-19 prevention (hey, Delta), and work. It's hard enough not worrying about whether your kid's school will cancel in-person classes or shut down altogether while facing the not-so-usual growing pains of children and teens who are forced to live in whatever phase of a pandemic we're in right now. (I mean, is it really post-pandemic? Is it halfway done or just beginning? And what's "normal" about this "new" environment?)

Moms, we feel your pain.

Keke Palmer is easily one of our favorite tell-it-like-it-is celebrities. From her up close and personal revelation of her battle with adult acne to doing it for the culture at the MET Gala to admitting she's "sorry to this man," Keke is known to give it to you straight, no chaser. And it's that commitment to being unapologetic in telling her truth that draws others to her like the light that she is.

As the saying goes, there is nothing new underneath the sun. So it comes as no surprise that something as groundbreaking as the graphic eyeliner look trend from a couple of years ago is making its rounds again as a must-try beauty trend for the fall season. Saying goodbye to the traditional thick-wit-it non-floating winged liner and hello to the new wave of if-it's-up-then-it's-up-then-it's-stuck eye makeup looks is the ultimate fall beauty move. It's the floating crease for us.
