In the wake of her divorce from Dot Da Genius after 11 months of marriage, Jhené Aiko has taken to SoundCloud to share a brand new track that seems to capture her recent emotional struggles. “New Balance” is a piano-led love song that fans are already speculating is about her alleged relationship with Twenty88 collaborator Big Sean and the subsequent fall out with her ex-husband. Aiko longingly croons:

“It hit me like a tidal wave / Knew that I was in love with you right away / Turned all my days into brighter days / Even when people say what we do is not ok / Man, f*ck what other people say.”

Jhené hasn’t explained the meaning behind “New Balance” explicitly, but there has been some communication on Twitter between her, a fan and Big Sean that seems to show some sort of connection within the song. See the tweets and stream “New Balance” below.
