ICYMI: Jhené Aiko Releases Dual Edition “Never Call Me” Visual

It’s been six months since the release of Jhené Aiko‘s Trip album and it’s just as moving now as it was at first spin. In addition to its accompanying short film ‘Trip (The Movie),” a second (and third) visual from the project arrives for “too bad, so sad” number “Never Call Me” (the first was for Rae Sremmurd-featuring “Sativa”). The official video finds Aiko beautifully dressed in attire that pays homage to her Japanese heritage before she arrives at the funeral of the song’s muse. As the closing refrain plays out, we time skip away from the singer/songwriter/poet’s divine spirit form to her as everyday self in a calm, peaceful and unbothered state.

In more around-the-way style footage, the Slauson Hills Edition of “Never Call Me” follows Jhené and a host of her real-life family and friends around their hood. This version of the video includes the song’s full album version (with Kurupt’s voicemail) and corroborates the sweet singer’s claims that if you mess with her, you’ll have a lot of people to answer to.

I think ‘Never Call Me’ has a sort of West Coast feel and message, so I wanted this visual to have the same feel,Billboard has quoted Aiko as saying. She jokingly added, “I also wanted all the fucc boys out there to know that I come from a real-ass neighborhood, and I have a bunch of shooters on my side in case they think about acting up.

Watch the “Never Call Me” visual above and the Slauson Hills Edition below.
