Jhene Aiko’s latest single “Triggered,” sent shockwaves around the internet as she vocally expressed her raw feelings post-breakup with rapper Big Sean. 

The couple ended their publicly passionate three year union last year.

While Black Twitter had a field day, creating memes and gifs off the brilliant freestyle, Jhene chimed in to clarify one thing…”Triggered” is not a diss track.

“triggered” was a moment. a moment that for me has passed. it is new to you because ur just now hearing it, but for me… it’s something i moved on from the moment i expressed it,” she tweeted to her fans.

Continuing, “triggered is NOT a diss song. it is a moment of talking shit out of frustration and passion. it’s was a moment of exaggerated expression when I was feeling lost and weak. no one is to be blamed or bashed for how I was feeling in that moment. I am in control of my feelings.”

Jhene also explained to her fans that everything she releases has creative license, and does not need to be taken literally.

“this is how I paint. this is me yelling and throwing paint at a canvas… then going out into the world feeling less tension, more open… more loving. going to bed feeling less stressed, more optimistic.”

Well amen for artistic release.

We previously reported, rumors began circulating that Big Sean and Jhene were officially over when Jhene popped up with a gigantic new tattoo, covering the ink she had of Big Sean’s face.

Just a few weeks ago, Jhene left a touching message in the comment section of Big Sean’s Instagram, declaring,  “You are so special. to me. to the world. while we’re both still on this planet I just to say… i love you beyond measure. even tho i get big mad and u trigger the f**k out of me,” she wrote, “u make me feel. and i appreciate that. because i thought i was dead inside.”
