Jhené Aiko has just revealed a brand new music video for “Lead The Way.” The single was written by Jhené and Oscar-nominated composer James Newton-Howard and the music video for the track featuring Aiko is directed by one of Raya and the Last Dragon directors, Carlos López Estrada. In the stunning visual, Jhené travels to the ancient fantasy kingdom of Kumandra as she sings the uplifting lyrics:
We have a choice to build or destroy, to fight or to come together/ Love is a bridge and trust is a gift, we give it and it gets better/ There’s an energy in the water, there is magic deep in our heart/ There’s a legacy that we honor, when we bring the light to the dark/ Whatever brings us together can nevеr tear us apart, we becomе stronger than ever/ When we just trust, trust and believe it, you’ll see that, we’ll lead the way/
Back in March, Aiko unveiled her third studio album Chilombo. From the project, she also dropped a music video for her song “A&B.” The 20 track-album included features from Ab-Soul, Big Sean, Future, Miguel, Nas, H.E.R., John Legend, Ty Dolla $ign, and debuted at the number two spot on the Billboard 200 thanks to an impressive 152,000 album equivalent units sold during its first week of release. Months after, she unleashed a deluxe version of the album.
Jhené has been incorporating the art of sound healing into her music as a way to help listeners get through hard times. “Because I have been studying sound healing, I did want this album to have an actual, proven healing technique in every track,” she said in a recent interview. “Not only could people listen to it and relate, it could also balance out different parts of their body, [make them] feel better, and have it actually be an experience to listen to the songs.”
