Jhene Aiko Clears The Air About 'Triggered' Record
Jhene Aiko has released a new track called "Triggered" (freestyle), which immediately went viral. In fact, many suspected that the song was a diss record towards her ex, Big Sean. On the track, she sings, "Don’t know what I’m capable of. Might f*** around and go crazy on cuz. Might f*** around, have to pay me in blood. This ain’t the way that you want it. Might catch a case in this b****. Don’t let me catch you face-to-face in this b****. Tryin’ my hardest not to disrespect you. After what you did, man, what you expected? You muhf***er."
However, Jhene took to social media to clear the air about the rumors that the song is a diss at her ex. She wrote, "‘triggered’ was a moment. a moment that for me has passed. it is new to you because ur just now hearing it, but for me… it’s something i moved on from the moment i expressed it. triggered is NOT a diss song. it is a moment of talking shit out of frustration and passion. it’s was a moment of exaggerated expression when I was feeling lost and weak. no one is to be blamed or bashed for how I was feeling in that moment. I am in control of my feelings.
She added, "this is how I paint. this is me yelling and throwing paint at a canvas… then going out into the world feeling less tension, more open… more loving. going to bed feeling less stressed, more optimistic."
