Jhené Aiko releases short film 'Trip,' written and co-directed with 'Girls Trip' writer Tracy Oliver

R&B singer Jhené Aiko has released a short film, which she wrote and co-directed with Girls Trip writer Tracy Oliver.

The short film is a part of the promotional campaign for her upcoming album, Trip 17. 

In the film, Aiko’s Penny is struggling with grief after her brother’s death in the midst of starting a new relationship. It features original poetry written by Aiko and seems to tease her new music. The film storyline is similar to her own life, as she lost her brother to cancer at a young age.
