CRITIC REVIEWS

Exclaim!

Chilombo is lyrically "freestyled" by Aiko, creating a breezy, trippy, unapologetically independent effort that shines a light on her continuing musical growth and quest for self-determination.

Pitchfork

Despite confident, freeform performances, Aiko's music too often lacks a pulse.

The Guardian

Unfortunately, neither Aiko’s narrative nor the fairly one-note production can sustain that focus across this wildly over-long record.

SOOOO its 2021 nominations time and I was like time to listen to every single nomination and then mid way listening to Chilombo I was tired and was considering going to sleep and doing this later.

This might've been the most boring album I've listened to all year.

Chilombo é a definição de um álbum mediano e esquecível, os vocais angelicais de Jhené Aiko não suportam o álbum todo durante 20 músicas ainda por cima com uma produção aborrecida e nada cativante, algumas músicas se destacam, mas ofuscam-se pela quantidade de fillers do projeto, uma má escolha para nomeação ao AOTY dos Grammys.
