For anyone who has ever been concerned about getting involved with a woman who might turn out to be crazy, Jhené Aiko is not calming any fears with her new single “Maniac.” But then again, from everything she shares on the NSFW single, she might be the kind of crazy that’s more exciting than nerve-racking.
The sensual single doesn’t pull any punches. From the very get-go, Jhené shares what she does in the bedroom and how she just can’t help herself. “You just made love to a maniac,” she sings on the chorus, her vocals drawn out with effect, as if she were teasing, taunting and generally luring her “victims” to their demise.
As for her verses, they come much faster and lay bare all the ways she’s ready and raring to go. “I stay up all night for ya, I’m a trooper/ Call and request I pick up, pull up quick as Uber,” she raps in between the slower and more seductive chorus.
