In the spirit of the 4/20 holiday, Jhené Aiko celebrated by dropping a brand new visual that is extremely fitting for the occasion. For her “Tryna Smoke” cut from her Chilombo album, Aiko shares a That 70’s Show-inspired video that even features cameos from Big Sean and her sisters. On the track, she sings about the bliss that comes with smoking good:

If I could fly, I would probably never come down/ With all of the bullshit confusion on the ground, I wish that I was high ‘cause I can’t live my life when it’s low/ So I’m gonna call the bros, tell ‘em, “Roll up one, right now” I’m tryna smoke

I’m so high, I’m so high, I’m so high-ah-ah/ That’s just how I get by-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah/ Lift that bird to the motherfucking sky-ah-ah

Last year 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.”
