Jhene Aiko

Los Angeles native Jhené Aiko has been around for a while, but really, she's just getting started. Nearly 10 years after signing with Epic Records in a piggyback deal with former boy band B2K, she's linked up with No I.D. and signed to Def Jam through his Artium Recordings label. Aiko, 24, is gearing up to drop her album, Souled Out, in early 2013 and after the success of her mixtape Sailing Soul(s), the anticipation for her next project is higher than ever.
