Jhené Aiko - "Maniac"

Everything I create is influenced by life... by my past, my future... things I see in my dreams... the strangers I meet.. the people I love.. the sounds I hear when I stare into darkness.
— Jhené Aiko

Jhené Aiko releases a visual for her latest single "Maniac", and reveals her inspiration behind it on Instagram. 

If you've heard the song by itself, you know that Jhené is definitly expressing her more sexual side. The visual for the song, however, tells a deeper, darker, sexier story. 

In the video Jhené is bound, gaged, and monitered by maniquns in doctors coats. Jhené posted and deleted her fascination with mania being influenced by her recently being diagnosed with bipolar disorder. "I think we all have some sort of imbalance, but I also believe that we can overcome it," she said in an instagram post last week. As an artist, Jhené did what she knows best and turned to music to express her findings. 

Jhené also stated that she plans on really diving deep into herself, through every layer of her being so that her fans can really understand her as an artists. That means more music, and more reasons to love and appreciate what's to come from her.
