Jhene Aiko Celebrates Album Release With Family & Friends- James Fauntleroy, Chris Brown, & Others

Jhene Aiko celebrated the release of her new album, Sail Out last night in LA with a group of family and friends. Fans have been waiting for a long time for this song bird's project to be released. When we interviewed her, it was obvious that she'd been waiting even longer for the right time, or right fit.

Last night was the culmination of all of that for the singer/songwriter who's sound has become synonymous with her name. Surrounded by industry pals, family, and friends she got to take a break from touring with Drake to celebrate her major accomplishment. Sail Out is reminiscent of her highly praised mixtaped Sailing Souls released a couple of years ago. I'm still jamming that mixtape, and the new cd compliments it so well.

The album has received love from peers and critics alike. Jhene is one of a very few artists who have been able to fully maintain their identity and sound right off the bat. She explained in our interview how important it was to her to be able to be herself, even in her early years. This may have caused a bit of a delay in her actually releasing an album, but in the end, it's paid off tremendously.

Along with her beautiful family a host of other people stopped through to show her love. Here she is below with her Father, gorgeous Mom, Sisters, and one of my favorite singer/songwriters James Fauntleroy who rarely makes an appearance.. Her gal pal Karrueche also showed up, along with Chris Brown who recently left rehab after a two week stay to continue outpatient treatment. Check out more photos of the event on Jhene's personal Instagram page.

Sail Out is available in stores and on iTunes Now!
