Jhené Aiko: Eternal Sunshine

LA-based Jhené Aiko has returned with an emotional video for “Eternal Sunshine” off her Souled Out album. It’s a pared-down ode to loved ones that blends melancholy and joy. The video (directed by Jay Ahn) is striking and tells the stories two tragic events in Aiko’s life: her brother Miyagi’s death, and a car accident she was in with her family. All the while, Aiko (who floats serenely above the crash scene) sings lyrics focused on happy memories; tugging on listeners’ heartstrings in a most disarming way.
