Hip-hop star Big Sean and R&B singer Jhené Aiko welcomed their first child into the world in November. By releasing “Sleep Soul Relaxing R&B Baby Sleep Music Vol. 2,” Aiko is truly embracing parenthood. The 20-song compilation was produced in collaboration with Jhené Aiko by the Sleep Soul label. The 34-year-old Def Jam recording artist was also the project’s executive producer.
The 6-time Grammy nominee said,
I’m super excited to partner with Sleep Soul to share this R&B lullaby album. As a mom of a newborn, I can appreciate anything that helps me and my baby boy get to sleep. These R&B lullaby tracks help soothe and relax Mom, Dad, and baby. Being a part of a project like this is important to me because I believe sleep is essential for the well-being of both parent and child.
In March, Sleep Soul published Sleep Soul Volume 1. The CD was widely advertised on the Calm meditation and sleep app. Beginning on December 15, “Sleep Soul Relaxing R&B Baby Sleep Music Vol. 2,” presented by Jhené Aiko, will be available on Calm. The official studio albums Souled Out (2014), Trip (2017), and Chilombo were previously released by Jhené Aiko (2020). The latter album, which opened at #2 on the Billboard 200 chart with 152,000 first-week copies, became the vocalist’s highest charting effort.
