With the release of the visuals for “Bed Peace”, Jhené Aiko (accompanied by Childish Gambino) recreates the famous “Bed-In” protests from John Lennon and Yoko Ono which lasted for two weeks in Montreal and Amsterdam. The protests were modeled after Sit-Ins and were to show their lack of support for the war in Vietnam. However to keep things more current, Jhené discusses some of issues that have plagued her hometown of Los Angeles such as the L.A. Riots and gang violence and the meaning behind her new EP.
