Fresh: Jhene Aiko - ‘For My Brother’
Jhené Aiko gives us a heartfelt tribute to her brother and best friend Miyagi, who sadly passed away last week after his battle with cancer at the age of 26. The L.A. singer, who is working on her debut album with Def Jam, wrote and recorded the song herself on her laptop and intended to only play it for her brother and made sure he listened to it prior to him passing…
“You are more than just my brother/ We grew up just like best friends/ I know nothing lasts forever, but I don’t want this to end,” sings Jhené in her gentle voice, urging with her brother to fight through the battle.
“Now I hear him telling ME, what I was singing to him… to not give up.” she wrote on her Tumblr page.
The indestructible connection the two had is very clear to see from this track.
