Having already made a big impression in 2013 with appearances on singles from Big Sean ("Beware") and Drake ("From Time"), breathy RB vocalist Jhené Aiko fleshes out her character on Sail Out, a relaxed debut EP that suggests that this girl is on permanent vacation. That's not a negative, but a positive, as the singer seductively slinks her way through heartbreak during the intoxicating cut "The Vapors," where sweet nothings like "Can I hit it again?" could either mean the bedroom or the bong. All the hard work Lennon and Ono did while on their backs in the '60s gets a cheeky twist when the light-stepping "Bed Peace" offers "If I had it my way, I'd roll out of bed, say, 'bout 2:30 midday/Hit the blunt, then hit you up..." before Childish Gambino joins the EP's superior guest list with Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul, and Vince Staples all on board. Thing is, this lazy, hazy boat trip to the hip side of RB only goes up and down the coast, so take Aiko's short intro as more of a "pinner" than a "fat blunt," as they say. ~ David Jeffries, Rovi
