Just days after the surprise announcement of their joint venture, Detroit rapper Big Sean and Los Angeles songstress Jhene Aiko have joined forces to create a musical duo titled TWENTY88. The eight-track album, available to stream exclusively through TIDAL for four days, and fans can download it at other digital retailers including Apple Music.
According to Rap-up, the album combines ’90s R&B and ’70s experimental rock and soul, explores the highs and lows of a relationship, while delving into conflict, memories, love, and sex. K-Ci & JoJo appear on the Detail-produced “2 Minute Warning,” with additional production from Key Wane and Tommy Brown.
“Music now doesn’t really cater to the feelings of a real relationship,” Aiko recently told Flaunt. “It’s all about trapping and bragging. I feel like this project is something that’s needed right now…Especially a whole project, is just good for people to see. That duality is a perfect combination.
A couple days ago, Big Sean celebrated his 28th birthday, and dropped an introspective new track. “Get My Shit Together” features a minimal type beat which gives Big Sean the opportunity to spit some deep game. Sean speaks on his journey to success with an effortless flow, which he switches up halfway through the track. Sean shows off his lyrical versatility while talking about his hopes for the future. It’s easy to see Big Sean is in his own mind throughout the song, and it makes for another dope track from the GOOD Music artist.
Fortunately, one track just wasn’t enough for Sean Don, as there has also been a press release for a new collab album featuring Big Sean and R&B talent Jhene Aiko. This new album will be a conceptual effort from the two artists featuring production from producers Key Wane, Detail and Tommy Brown. The new collaborative project Twenty 88 will be a Tidal exclusive which will release April 1st.

To say the 2015-2016 NYE was “good” would be a very grand understatement given the release of a few new tracks from some of these greats. To start off the year, we were given a Big Sean track to reflect on 2015 featuring Pharell & Detail titled “What a Year”, followed by 2 new tracks from La Flame Travis Scott’s “A-Team” & “Wonderful” featuring none other than The Weeknd, that originally premiered in Seattle during the fall of 2015 with snippets running rampant til its release. Last, but surely not least, a single tweet earlier that night from Mrs. Kim Kardashian-West had the internet buzzing over her tweeting “YEEZY, YEEZY, YEEZY, NEW SONG ABOUT TO DROP #FACTS”, only a few hours later the ball dropped as Kanye West released his controversial track “Facts” to ring in 2016. Taking shots at Nike, celebrating his record-breaking Addidas Yeezy line numbers & “Jumpin’ over Jumpman” he goes off on the track. We can only hope this is the first of what’s to come from Sean Don, La Flame, Ye, and the rest of the G.O.O.D. Music family for 2016. Bump all the tracks below.
