Jhené Aiko has a lot to get off her chest in her newest single, Triggered (Freestyle).
The track is one of the Grammy-nominated artist's first songs since 2017 album Trip and takes the form of a freestyle.
The Grammy-nominated singer shared the single, and accompanying video, with her millions of followers on Twitter earlier this week when she uploaded a screenshot of a personal note that provided background to the song’s theme and overall subject matter. “one night I was so deep in my feelings, I was afraid of what I might do,” she wrote, “I didn’t want to revert to the same bad habits that have set me back time and time again. I realized that instead of running away from my emotions… I needed to sit with them, express myself and say whatever came to mind."
"It was healing to say the least… and now I feel a bit more free #triggered.”
