R&B/soul artist Jhene Aiko has released her latest project, “Sleep Soul Relaxing R&B Baby Sleep Music Vol.2”, a compilation of relaxing, R&B lullabies for babies and parents.
The 20-song collection perfects Sleep Soul’s signature fusion of translucent and soothing R&B melodies with white, pink, and brown noise soundscapes perfectly crafted to lull you and your baby into sleep for the night. Each track was also executive produced by the multi-platinum R&B trailblazer and mother of two. Aiko and rapper Big Sean delivered a baby boy, Noah Hasani on Nov. 8. Aiko has a 14-year-old daughter, Namiko Love Browner.
The lullabies last for about one hour and 15 minutes and the melodies, beat and instrumentation of the songs have the Jhene Aiko sound and feel from the instrumentation, rhythm, and beats. You’ll almost forget these are lullabies. After each lullaby is when the white, pink, or brown noise escapes come into play before the next lullaby plays.
In regards to Sleep Soul, Aiko noted, “I’m super excited to partner with Sleep Soul to share this R&B lullaby album. As a mom of a newborn, I can really appreciate anything that helps me and my baby boy get to sleep. These R&B lullaby tracks help soothe and relax Mom, Dad, and baby. Being a part of a project like this is important to me because I believe sleep is essential for the well-being of both parent and child.”
In March 2022, Sleep Soul released Sleep Soul Volume 1. Since the release of Volume 1, Sleep Soul has partnered with the Calm app, an app for sleep and meditation. “Sleep Soul Relaxing R&B Baby Sleep Music Vol.2 will go live, Thursday, Dec. 15 on its homepage and new music releases section as well as in their newsletter to over 1,000,000 subscribers.
