As one of Black Hollywood’s former power couples, Big Sean and Jhené Aiko have never shied away from living their full truth, regardless of what the rest of the world may think. While the two officially split last year, Sean and Aiko have remained close friends. And their collaborations since the breakup have been interesting, to say the least.
When Sean dropped his first solo release, “Single Again,” the rapper’s ode to self-improvement, Aiko was featured on the track. Prior to that, the singer dropped “Triggered,” a freeform loosie that fans unanimously assumed was about her ex. This Friday (Nov. 15), fans were pleasantly surprised to see that Aiko and Sean had collaborated once more, putting an end to any rumored tension.
Aiko’s new single, “None of Your Concern,” boasts Big Sean as the featured artist. Whereas “Single Again” was Sean’s attempt at self-discovery with Aiko riding shotgun, “None of Your Concern” is an emotional ballad-rap hybrid that sees the two delve into the sea of emotions that flood once you realize things are really over.
Sean’s rhymes on the song have already caused a stir on social media. In the second half of the track, Sean reflects on the pain of seeing his lover move on, before offering a much more explicit illustration of how much he misses his ex.
“But every time I lay down I think about you naked, and if you find my replacement, how could you,” he raps. “I made you cum nine times in one day, your two lips should come in a vase, you rode my face, I realized you look as good as you taste.”
Naturally, fans of Sean and Aiko had some very strong feelings about the collaboration.
“Big Sean said he did what?!” one person tweeted out.
“If Big Sean and Jhené gon keep dropping songs together can they just make it easy on us and put em under Twenty88?” another commented with a crying emoji.
