Jhene Aiko's Chilombo is a journey. The lengthy project, titled after her last name, takes listeners through a whirlwind of emotions. Jhene's honey-sweet vocals ooze out from behind gorgeous production. "One Way St" featuring Ab-Soul puts those beautiful vocals on display in a more hip-hop environment. Soul and Jhene have worked together many times before, and their energy is once again well matched on "One Way St."
Produced by Julian-Quán Việt Lê, "One Way St" mixes hip-hop drums with airy synths and bells to create a magical instrumental that evolves the longer you listen to the song. The beat goes through a metamorphosis before it ends, giving the track a heavy experimental vibe before everything is said and done.
