Jhene (born Jhene Aiko Chilombo on March 16, 1988), is an American pop/R&b singer. She was formerly signed to T.U.G./Epic Records, home to Marques Houston and Omarion, but left due to delays with her debut album "My Name Is Jhene." She is the younger sister of R&b singer Mila J.
Jhene is the daughter of Christina Yamamoto and Karamo Chilombo. She is African American, Japanese, and Native American (Dominican, Spaniard) She has four siblings: Miyoko(sister), Jamila (sister), Miyagi (brother) and Jahi (brother). Jhene's older sisters Jamila and Miyoko toured with Immature and was in a now disbanded group Gyrl, which was signed to MCA/ Silas records. This led to Jhene's first meeting with producer Chris Stokes when Jhene was five years old. Eventually Stokes heard her sing, and he promised her that he would work with her someday. When B2K signed with Epic Records, Stokes suggested Jhene as a female solo singer and which led to her being signed as well. She served as the opening act for B2K on the Scream Tour 3.
Jhene appears in numerous music videos including O'Ryan's debut video, "Take It Slow", B2K's debut video "Uh Huh" and "Why I Love You, P.Y.T.'s "Same Ol' Same Ol' (Remix)" featuring Sarai, Play's "M.A.S.T.E.R.
