While We're Young

Songfacts®:

  • Here, Jhené Aiko sings about running away with her lover. She told NPR: "'While We're Young' is my ideal love situation. It's also the feeling of a new love, when you're kind of naïve and first falling in love with someone and super optimistic about everything."
  • Directed by Jay Ahn, the video is a play on the Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler romantic comedy 50 First Dates. Aiko plays the role of a beautiful woman with short-term memory loss and her suitor has to convince the songstress to fall in love with him every day since she doesn't remember him.
