Jhene Aiko ft. Miguel – Hoe

In a perfect world, I’d be listening to the full version of this. However, it’s not a perfect world, but I also don’t mind listening to this record. The Miguel assisted “Hoe” features an aggressive Jhene laying all her cards on the table and hoping her actions won’t be deemed hoeish. I can dig it. Jhene’s Sailing Soul(s) hits March 16th
