Jhené Aiko recently announced she’s working on her next album, Trip 17, which is inspired by both a literal trip to Hawaii and a broader sense of the term. “It’s inspired by every type of trip you could imagine: mental, physical, even psychedelic,” she told Playboy magazine. “I’m at a point where I put it all in the music. It’s a puzzle I want people to put together.”

To accompany her upcoming album, Jhené has also written a short film called Trip. Right now, it’s unclear what the film is about or when it will be released, but you can catch a preview of it below via the trailer Jhené shared on Twitter. Watch this space.

I can’t remember the last Mikes Jones song I heard. In fact, I’m more used to seeing him in bizarre commercials these days. But the Houston rapper — who has a couple kids running around in the rap game right now, let’s being honest — is clearly feeling himself on this new song he just dropped called “The Sauce.” And you know what? I don’t hate it. According to XXL, the track is taken from Mike’s upcoming album Money Train Reloaded, which drops on October 21.

The series follows Tyler’s endlessly curious mind as he finds out how various things are made, from stop motion films and electric go-karts to bunk beds and Converse sneakers.
