R&B music’s sexiest stars stormed the annual spring festival to enjoy the good vibes.
While Kehlani and NAO were billed for the festival, others–like Rihanna–made surprise appearances, and some were there to attend the brand events, like Solange and Tinashe.
During her Sunday night set, Kehlani rocked a lose fitting white outfit that had ‘Find Our Girls’ written on her top, and ‘Solidarity’ down the leg of her pants.
Rihanna had social media in a craze over her shimmering full body suit with low cut Gucci tank top and jean shorts on Day 2, and she was seen turning up in the crowd to Kendrick Lamar’s set on Day 3.

6LACK has been buzzing heavily since his last release, Free 6lack, and the upwards trend is only continuing with his latest collaboration, a duet alongside Jhene Aiko. This isn’t even the biggest co-sign he’s received as a singer, The Weeknd has already given 6lack his seal of approval, enlisting him for the North American leg of his Starboy tour, as well as bringing him out for a surprise performance in LA. Despite being from ATL, he definitely has a TO-approved sound.
The joint record, “First F*ck,” is the perfect bedroom jam, with a slow-moving beat that finds 6lack drawling about spending a night with a ladyfriend, before Jhene chimes in with her perspective.
Soulful songstress Jhene Aiko unveiled the darkly sexual visuals for her provocative new song “Maniac.”
In the self-directed clip, Aiko gets tied to a hospital bed in an asylum styled set. As Jhené sings about being a “maniac” in bed, she is bound and gagged in wheelchair surrounded by faceless doctors. Later, the tables have turned, she’s free from her binds and is straddling a mannequin.
“There are so many layers to my personality. One of them is very sexual and ‘Maniac’ is me sharing that side of myself,” Aiko tells Rolling Stone. “When I started putting together the concept for the ‘Maniac’ visual, I wanted to explore what it meant to be manic.” To that end, the singer researched old asylums, watched movies on the topic and learned the “bizarre techniques that were used back in the day to treat mental patients.”
Jhené Aiko loves animals, and feeling confident in her own skin. Which makes her the perfect candidate to support PETA’s new “Drop the Fur” campaign.
The sexy songstress appears in the buff for PETA’s latest ad campaign, which was unveiled in Los Angeles on Monday at “Naked Ambition,” a retrospective exhibit of the group’s naked celebrity campaigns.
“Animals have feelings, they have souls, they have emotions, and the way that they are killed for fur is very inhumane,” says Aiko in an exclusive video interview. “They’re electrocuted, they’re beaten, they’re drowned, they’re skinned alive. And once you know that, it’s, like, how could you think wearing fur is cool? … [I]t’s not.”
Aiko previously starred in an animal adoption campaign for peta2, PETA’s youth division, and is part of a long list of celebrities—including Kid Ink, P!nk, Mýa, TLC’s Chilli, Kesha, Sia, and others—who’ve teamed up with PETA to promote kindness to animals.
Jhené Aiko surprised fans with the release of her brand new single, “Maniac,” but it’s raunchy lyrical content will shock you even more than her infamous ‘eat the booty’ line.
“Hop on a d*ck like a maniac / Head like a brainiac / Got to read the signs like a zodiac / I’m a low-key freak, you don’t know me, yet,” she raps from the outset.
The daring lines don’t end there, as she makes references to sex and later, marriage.
“Good head got a little bite to it,” she continues. “Little booty got a little bounce to it / We can go all damn night to it / Wife that, go on, throw rice to it.”
Although she rhymes to start the track, “Maniac” also includes some of Jhené’s trademark vocals, as she sings: “You just made love to a maniac. Do you want to f*ck with a maniac? Make you fall in love with a maniac.”
“Maniac” is likely the first single from Aiko’s forthcoming Souled Out follow-up. Jhené and her beau Big Sean are also planning a TWENTY88 sequel for 2017.
