Jhené Aiko's hard work continues to pay off. Prepping the release of her debut album, Souled Out, the L.A. singer-songwriter has inked a new deal with BMI to represent the public performances of her music.
"I'm excited about joining the BMI family. Looking forward to the future,” Jhené says in a statement.
BMI Vice President, Writer/Publisher Relations Catherine Brewton adds: "JhenéAiko has brought a new and fresh sound to music. Her smooth voice and compelling lyrics are the perfect combination to fill a void in popular music. I am excited to hear what's next for her musically."
Aiko, who recently wrapped an opening slot for Drake’s European tour, is currently pushing her smash single “The Worst,” and her debut album will arrive soon.
She is also nominated for three 2014 BET Awards: Best Female R&B/Pop Artist, Centric Award and the Coca-Cola Viewers Choice Award. The BET Awards are slated for June 29, 2014.
