Spotless Mind

Album: Souled Out (2014)


  • First performed by Aiko during a performance in April 2014 at the Coachella festival, this smooth song was originally written by the singer in 2012. She recalled to Fader magazine: "I was on the Lauryn Hill and Nas tour, and I probably did it in 45 minutes in GarageBand. It's also very specific, a feel-good song."

    "It's basically about the way I deal with relationships and how I go with the flow of things," Aiko added. "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is one of my favorite movies."
