“You came through with that sativa / Indica be havin’ me stuck,” sings Jhene Aiko on her new Trip duet with Swae Lee. Judging by the features on the album, which Jhene released as a surprise to fans Friday, she’s as particular about her collaborators as her weed. Outside of her father Dr. Chill and daughter Namiko Love, Aiko has enlists two vets of their respective lanes, Kurupt and Brandy, her boyfriend Big Sean, and finally Swae Lee, to help define her sound. Swae has demonstrated his versatility as a hook man not only on Rae Sremmurd’s material, but also across a few recent features, including the dancehall-inflected “Unforgettable” with French Montana. On “Sativa,” he’s brought into Aiko’s murky R&B world, which is not too far off from something like SremmLife 2’s “Now That I Know.” The song finds the two “smoking weed out the container” and “making arrangements.” In many ways, it embodies the spirit of the album Jhene explained in an interview with Playboy earlier this year. “[It’s] inspired by every type of trip you could imagine: mental, physical, even psychedelic,” she said. “I’m at a point where I put it all in the music. It’s a puzzle I want people to put together.”
