Jhené Aiko Releases Book of Poems, ‘2Fish’

Jhené Aiko

Following the release of her album Trip, Jhené Aiko dropped another intimate project, a book of poems called 2Fish.

2Fish features a collection of intimate poems and short stories written by the singer during her adolescence through adulthood. According to the book’s description, “[2Fish] details [Aiko’s] thoughts in their most raw and honest form taken directly from a collection of notebooks she has kept since age 12.”

In regards to writing, the dreamy singer shared that poetry has always been a part of her life.”Writing poetry has always been a form of therapy for me and has helped me get through difficult situations. When no one else understands, out journals can understand. I feel obligated to share because I know I am not alone in my suffering.”

Back in October, Aiko partnered with Get Schooled, a non-profit organization, to launch the Penny’s Pen campaign. The singer requested that young writers ages 13 to 21 share their written pieces on Instagram for a chance to win a Penny’s Pen writing kit.
