Jhené Aiko and Tinashe are among the premiere alternative R&B superstars, and their smooth-sounding, pop-tinged vocals have been compared frequently over the years. Jhené made her grand return with her surprise sophomore studio effort "Trip" in 2017, peaking within the top five of Billboard's Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. Tinashe's long-awaited third studio album "Joyride" was finally released in April 2018, and brought fans waves of happiness. But whose vocals do you prefer the most? 🎤

Jhené has been on a roll. Her debut album "Souled Out," collaborative album "Twenty88" with Big Sean, and sophomore solo effort "Trip" have all peaked within the top five of the Billboard Top 200 Albums and Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts. Her smooth sound has crossed over many genres: pop, hip hop, trap and most notably, alternative R&B. 

Watch the music video for one of her latest smashes, "Sativa," below.

Tinashe has been on the grind since the release of her smooth R&B-pop hit "2 On" and her debut album "Aquarius" in 2014. Since then, she's taken a deeper dive into a crossover pop and alternative R&B sound on both "Nightride" and "Joyride." Fans are continuing to build up this up-and-coming star, and it's because her sweet vocals have crossover appeal.

Check out the music video for one of her latest bops, "Me So Bad," below.
