Big Sean and Jhené Aiko Forms New Group ‘Twenty88’ .. New Album On The Way

Big Sean and Jhené Aiko has formed a new group called “Twenty88.” The duo already has a new joint album coming out this week.

Both Big Sean and Aiko are not new to working together so joining forces should come easy given that they already made hit songs together in the past, think “I Know” and “Beware.”

The G.O.O.D. Music rapper and the R&B singer made the announcement on Sunday and both of them changed their Twitter handle to @twenty88 “1/2 of TWENTY88.”

“TWENTY88 tells the story of the highs and lows of a relationship, with insights into conflict, memories, love, sex, and more and features production from Key Wane, Detail, and Tommy Brown,” the duo said in a press release to the media.

The group name Twenty88 was derived from both artists birthdays. They are both 28 years old and born in 1988.

Big Sean posted the album artwork on Instagram showing both himself and Jhene Aiko’s faces with parental advisory warning. The album will be released on Friday April 1st.

The duo Twenty88 will be making their television debut on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on Thursday night before dropping the album.

Big Sean celebrated his birthday last week Friday and dropped a new single “Get My Sh*t Together.” He also hinted then that some new material was in the works. The Detroit rapper threw a huge birthday bash in Bel-Air last weekend and Jhene Aiko was their to help him celebrate.

Big Sean released his third album Dark Sky Paradise in February last year. That project sold 139,000 copies in its first week and went on to be certified platinum by the RIAA.
