Big Sean kicked things off from inside of the show’s photo booth, spitting the track’s first bars as he slowly made his way to the stage where Jhené Aiko was waiting. From there, Jhené dipped into her own verse while swaying between clouds of purple smoke on the stage. The two then played off their undeniable chemistry, walking around each other in circles before finally resting on each other to grind for a few bars. By the song’s end, the music quieted down and the two got more intimate than ever singing the last few lyrics directly to each other.
The duo surprised fans when they dropped their collaborative album, TWENTY88, on April 1. Riddled with conflict, love, and sex, the project mangled buttery soul and glitched out R&B croons all into one incredibly seductive result.
They also shared a short film to go along with the entire project titled Out of Love. The Lawrence Lamont-directed visual dove deeper into the pair’s chemistry as they wrangled their way through the trials and tribulations of love. It also gave us a whole new way to witness their palpable chemistry on screen. Hopefully, the pair will head back to the studio to record another project together as TWENTY88.
