Chilombo is the singer’s last name, Jhené Aiko Efuru Chilombo, and means wild beast. The album, which “celebrates her coming into her own personal power,” consists of freestyles that took place on The Big Island of Hawaii where Jhené’s great grandmother was born. Jhené was inspired by the island’s beautiful and powerful volcanoes, having visited throughout the years.

“The volcano is the beast. The beast is Chilombo. I am Chilombo,” said Jhené
