Def Jam Signs ‘Sailing Souls’ Artist Jhene Aiko

Jhene Aiko, the songstress that crafted the ‘Sailing Souls’ mixtape, revealed Thursday night to her Twitter followers that she would be part of Def Jam’s roster.

The tweet on Thursday included an image of Jhene Akio and hit producer No I.D. holding the coveted contract. With the leadership of No I.D as Vice President of A&R, Jhene Akio’s sultry sound and message will be something for the masses.

Despite the big deal, Jhene has continuously reaffirmed her fans through social media that she’s here to inspire and not entertainer.

“I am not an entertainer. I am an inspirer. I don’t sing songs to entertain and distract. I write songs to inspire, to heal, to bring awareness to…myself…and if I’m lucky, to others.”

Her insight and intentions seem to be geared towards enlightening listeners.
