Jhene Aiko comes through with a vertical video for her recent track, Triggered (Freestyle).
Aiko took to social media to post a note. “One night I was so deep in my feelings, I was afraid of what I might do,” Aiko wrote in the post. “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.”
Following its release, Jhene Aiko shared more about the song saying it was “a moment that for me has passed. it is new to you because ur just now hearing it, but for me… it’s something i moved on from the moment i expressed it.”
From past relationships and life afterwards, the singer takes a moment to reflect on the mic.
She also addressed speculation that she was taking aim with the record. “‘Triggered’ is NOT a diss song. It is a moment of talking shit out of frustration and passion. It’s was a moment of exaggerated expression when I was feeling lost and weak,” she wrote. “No one is to be blamed or bashed for how I was feeling in that moment. I am in control of my feelings.”
