Jhene Aiko taps into her darker side, in her new video ‘3:16AM’, touching on complicated suicidal thoughts. Directed by Topshelf Junior, Jhene explained the song and video’s concept:
I’m a peaceful person…but to myself, I have really dark thoughts sometimes. The song is me exploring those types of thoughts…I’m just being honest-the things that I think about. Ignoring something doesn’t make it disappear.
Of the song’s title, Jhene explains:
The hours of 3 and 5 are when i am addressing those dark thoughts…it comes from a very personal place. Watch the video below:
