Jhené Aiko has teamed up with fellow Los Angeles native August 08 on a new astrology-inspired track, called “Water Sign.”
August 08 recently became the first artist to sign with Aiko’s ALLEL Sound label, a joint venture between the singer and Def Jam Recordings.
“As a longtime fan of Jhené’s, I’m really humbled by her belief in me as an artist,” said August 08. “She set the bar as an independent R&B artist from L.A. who wrote her own rules and made no compromises in following her dreams. We really vibe on music and creativity and I’m excited to go on this journey with her.”
Aiko described August 08 as an “incredible writer, singer, and artist whose music speaks to me on so many levels.”
“As a fellow Los Angeles native, I am so proud of him. August’s talent, love for songwriting, and hands-on approach with his art is something I can relate to and have a great amount of respect for,” Aiko said.
She added, “It was a natural evolution of our friendship and musical collaboration to have him become the first artist signed to ALLEL Sound. I couldn’t be more excited to work with August.”
“Water Sign” is the lead track on August 08’s six-song EP Towards The Moon, which is the second part of the artist’s debut project Seasick.
