Aiko is set to head out on the road for a highly-anticipated North American spring tour - THE MAGIC HOUR - with special guest Queen Naija. THE MAGIC HOUR TOUR kicks off May 1st in Boston, and includes two Canadian dates in Toronto and Vancouver (see below). Tickets for THE MAGIC HOUR TOUR go on sale to the public on March 6th, and will include a digital download code for Jhene’s new album CHILOMBO, set for release on March 6th.
Fans can get early access to tickets through pre-sale opportunities launching tomorrow via Spotify, local venues, and purchase of special merch and digital album bundles at her official store: https://shop.jheneaiko.com/.
The first three advance single releases from CHILOMBO have tallied over 500 million cumulative global streams – the RIAA platinum certified "Triggered" (with over 300 million streams), "None Of Your Concern" (with over 100 million streams), and "Pu$$y Fairy (OTW)".
CHILOMBO proclaims the artist’s full name, Jhené Aiko Efuru CHILOMBO, as it celebrates her coming into her own personal power. The initial jam sessions where she freestyled the lyrics to each song, took place on The Big Island of Hawaii where Jhené's great grandmother was born. Jhené was inspired by the beauty and power of the island's volcanoes, having visited throughout the years. Chilombo means wild beast. The volcano is symbolic of the beautiful, yet powerful beast. Jhené Aiko is Chilombo. In contrast to her 2017 album, Trip, which intricately detailed the process of grieving, CHILOMBO finds Jhené embracing her strength and power, and coming into her confidence as a woman, a creator and a healer. She has always embraced magic in her particular brand of soulful, trippy, ethereal R&B, but now on CHILOMBO she has taken it all to another level.
