Jhené Aiko “My Afternoon Dream”

To celebrate her 26th birthday yesterday, budding super star Jhené Aiko dropped a new video entitled “My Afternoon Dream.” The song itself plays like a lullaby. Her famously serene voice seems even more tranquil than usual as she sings over producer Key Wayne’s ethereal melody. The lyrics flow just as smoothly, as she sensually sings:

“Don’t wake me up cause I’m in love with all that you are / You make me see the truth in things I think that you are / The remedy for everything, it seems that you are / The truth itself ’cause nothing else can take me so far.”

The video, directed and edited by Aiko herself, reinforces the song’s peaceful mood, featuring images of the beach scenes and frolicking children. The visuals are sure to leave you at ease, if not relax you right to sleep.

Aiko is slated to be delivering her debut LP Souled Out via Def Jam this May. Check out the video above and comment below to let us know if you’re feeling it.
