Jhené Aiko

When: Fri., Dec. 19, 7 p.m. 2014

The Def Jam recording artist can sing, that’s clear from one listen to “Comfort Inn Ending,” “The Worst,” or any of her other heartbreaking ballads. It’s so nice to hear a strong R&B singer who understands restraint, who resists the urge to show off their vocal range at every possible instant. Hopefully she doesn’t bring her “Drink Texting” compatriot along with her. And here’s also to hoping she has a backing band equal to her innovative electronic arrangements.
