Big Sean planning another Twenty88 album with 'soulmate' Jhene Aiko

Rapper Big Sean has promised fans another collaborative album with new girlfriend Jhene Aiko after branding the couple "soulmates" in a sweet tweet.

The stars teamed up to form the duo TWENTY88 and released their self-titled debut album earlier this year (16).

Their chemistry in the studio has since spilled over into real life, with Jhene filing for divorce from producer Dot da Genius in August (16), two months after sharing a kiss with Big Sean onstage in June (16).

Jhene went public with her new romance in October (16), when she posted a telling photo of the Clique hitmaker kissing her cheek as she smiled. She captioned the snap "#mcm", standing for Man Crush Monday.

Now Big Sean has revealed the couple is heading back into the studio to work on new music together for 2017, as well as their own respective solo albums.

After a fan heaped praise on the artists' TWENTY88 release on Twitter, Big Sean responded, "Thank you the next @twenty88 album is coming next year. We gon get our solo's off too though (sic)!"

He then added the hashtag "#Dons", suggesting they are at the top of their games, and revealed he considers them "#Soulmates".

Big Sean has already teased fans about his follow-up to 2015's Dark Sky Paradise, recently sharing new songs No More Interviews and Bounce Back. Meanwhile, Jhene has been working on her sophomore album, Souled Out.

The hip-hop star is no stranger to high-profile relationships - he was briefly engaged to actress Naya Rivera until their split in April, 2014, and he went on to date another singer and collaborator, Ariana Grande. They parted ways last year (15) after eight months together.
