2011present: Sailing Soul(s) and Def Jam debut
In 2011, Aiko made a return to music, in an interview she spoke on the choice saying Shortly before I conceived my daughter, I stepped back into the field and took a meeting with a label head . In this meeting, I was innocently told, to sell myself when walking into these meetings. Thats when I decided I would sail myself rather than sell myself.
She released a mixtape on March 16, 2011 entitled Sailing Soul(s) via her official website, JheneAiko.com. All the songs on the mixtape were written by Aiko, except July which was written by Micah Powell and most of the songs were produced by Fisticuffs, except July and You vs Them which were produced by Bei Maejor, Real Now which was produced by Roosevelt, Do Better which was produced by J.

I told them I wanted to be a part of the Cocaine 80s. I wanted to be the female voice of the group. They will be featured on Souled Out. Yes, we are definitely working on a mixtape or album together. That is definitely in the works.
In 2012, Aiko was also the opening act on the highly-anticipated Life Is Good/Black Rage concert tour headlined by fellow American artists, rapper Nas and singer-songwriter Lauryn Hill.

Aiko cites American rapper Tupac as a major influence calling him a BIG inspiration" adding Hes like an icon for speaking your mind and being you, even if its controversial Continuing to say Hes been a big inspiration for me just to stick to who I am and to actually stand for something through music. Aiko also cites R&B singer Aaliyah as a influence and Eminem and Kendrick Lamar. Rapper Kid Cudi is also a influence on Aiko, in which she said Thats pretty much one of the only people that I listen to consistently. No matter what he puts out, Im one of those fans. He can do no wrong in my eyes. Aiko also cites Brandy Norwood as an influence saying "I always say the person who taught me how to sing indirectly because I listened to her all the time was Brandy. I fell in love with her voice when I was six years old. I always loved Brandy." Aiko also listens to Beyonce to learn from her vocal technique and is also influenced by India Arie and Amel Larrieux. Aiko is influenced by John Mayer saying "Hes probably one of my number one musical influences because of his writing ability and his voice."
Music and voice
Aiko's voice and musical style has been described as having "gentle pop-tinged vocals sensually sweet voice with hip-hop-centric beats" as well as her voice being called "soft and sultry" Jhene described her musical style in an interview saying For the most part a lot of it has to do with how I personally like to sing. Because I can do different things with my voice, a lot of times people would write songs for me it wouldnt be my preference of singing, but I would be able to do it. So Id record it and a lot of times Id be uncomfortable singing louder, doing more runs or whatever the producer wanted me to do. Id do it just to make everybody happy. When I got with Fisticuffs who produced the majority of Sailing Soul(s), we all would just vibe out. I would write while they were doing the beat and it would blend so perfectly. It was completely writing in the style I wanted to write and singing in the key I wanted to sing. We didnt think about it like we want this song to sound ambient, we just did it. Each song is different, but it has the same tone of being mellow and soulful. It just happened. We created the sound as we went along. I think everyone gets the lane that Im in.
