Jhené Aiko dropped off an accompanying music video for her Chilombo cut, “Lotus (intro).” Animated by Nick Peterson, the artistic visual is a moving watercolor painting that depicts a woman on a lotus atop a volcano, fearlessly watching along as it explodes. As the smoke continues to surround her, a colorful dragon-looking creature appears, symbolizing the strength the woman has found as she treads on.

Chilombo dropped in early March and included guest appearances from Future, Miguel, Ab-Soul, Big Sean, H.E.R., Nas, John Legend, Ty Dolla $ign and her father Dr. Chill. The album, which followed up 2017’s Trip, opened at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 and is her highest-charting project so far.
