Not only has she been blessed with a beautiful voice but Jhene Aiko has paired lyrics to match in her music. Now away from the mixtapes and EP’s, Aiko has graduated to the full-length and her skills have made seemingly simple tracks like”Pretty Bird (Freestyle)” standout.
One of the few tracks to include a feature off Souled Out, “Pretty Bird (Freestyle)” brings Common and Aiko together for what could be classified as a poem more than a true freestyle. Stripped down and raw, Aiko’s lyrics are quite limited to the title of the track but her emotion combined with Common’s thoughtful spoken words make “Pretty Bird (Freestyle)” take flight.
