Christmas came early for Jhené Aiko fans as the dreamy songstress released a surprise album early this morning (Sept. 22) titled Trip. The 22-track project features guest appearances from Big Sean, Kurupt, Brandy and Swae Lee of Rae Sremmurd. Trip arrives as the follow-up to her solo debut, Souled Out, and her joint project with her beau Big Sean, Twenty88.

Earlier this week, she dropped a short film that will accompany the album. In the film, written by Jhené and Tracy Oliver, who was behind the film Girl’s Trip, the West Coast songbird stars as Penny, who finds love after the death of her brother. Drugs soon complicate things for the protagonist but her late brother helps lead her to peace. Check out the emotional video below and join her in her Trip right after.
