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.

Those who have experienced an HBCU homecoming understand the assignment. Students, alumni, and family of a Historically Black College and University gather to partake in the excitement of celebrating the heritage and culture of the school. It's a time of joy, honoring traditions, and for some, reflecting on the good ol' days. Homecoming weekends are spent eating well, laughing plenty, and enjoying the sights; and there is plenty to see! (Spoiler alert: Sleep is not on the syllabus.)

Summer is coming to an end, and it's officially time to start the fall activities. And with the start of a new season comes new movies and shows. One, in particular, is the final season of Netflix's Dear White People, airing September 22. A great thing about this show is that it sparks healthy conversation. Past seasons have explored topics like double consciousness, sexuality, and the Me Too Movement, but it's done it in a way that still allows the show to feel relatable and fun.

Period pain. Lawd. Could there be something that is more annoying, especially since it happens every 28-30 days? Like, c'mon. If you've ever wondered about the science behind it all, basically, we need our uterus to contract, so that it can shed the lining that accumulated, just in case we conceived in between cycles. And so, what basically happens is, the prostaglandins levels in our system increase which trigger inflammation and also period pain, so that the blood is able to flow from our bodies.

One of my favorite things about the changing seasons are the new vibes and new energies that change welcomes with it. September represents a transition from the white sand beaches, bottomless brunches, and undeniable romantic vibes long nights, festivals, and impromptu road trips often thought of when we think about the summer. In its place comes romanticism in a different approach. Pumpkin spice anything, the excuse to cuddle up, and the leaves of the trees turning warm shades sparks joy in a different way as fall begins. Perhaps what I am most excited about though are the 2021 wellness trends that come with it.

A few days ago, I was having a conversation with some folks about songs that should've been official singles yet never were. One of the ones that I shared was Mariah Carey's "All Alone in Love" (a song that she wrote when she was only 15, by the way). To me, it's a perfect way to intro this piece because I have had enough personal experiences and counseled enough people to know that it is very possible to be in a relationship with someone — and still feel quite alone in it. Not because your partner doesn't love you. Not because they're up to some totally f'ed up shenanigans. It's just…even though you signed up for a true and lasting partnership, somehow you now feel some of the very words that define what being alone can feel like: unattended, detached, unassisted, semi-compassionless and perhaps even abandoned on some levels.
