“Jhene’ Aiko is a sweetheart! She walked up to me and said all of my songs aren’t sleepy. We laughed & hugged it out,” Coko wrote. “She got what I was saying though. It’s all love, no hate. My son is a big fan of hers.”

Last week, SWV sat down with Buzz Feed‘s Cocoa Butter and gave their opinion on today’s R&B singers, and when it came to Jhene Aiko Coko said that the “Sativa” singer’s music makes people sleepy.

Coko’s commentary received some backlash on social media.

Her commentary received some support as well.
