Big Sean and Jhene Aiko have already released their collaborative project, Tweny88, and now, just one week after that release, they have released a snippet video to their latest work, a short film titled Out of Love.
According to The Boombox, the full film consists of 15-minutes of footage that is available to view and download exclusively on Tidal. In the Lawrence Lamont directed short film, the duo plays a pair of adult film stars who attend "the XXX adult film awards" and also have a little bedroom fun with a female robot, that appears to cater to the couples' every need and desires.
The Tidal Twitter page pinned the tweet announcing the release of the film on April 8.

Aiko explained the inspiration behind the concept for the film during an interview with Flaunt Magazine. "It's a '70s aesthetic, but we're in the future," explained the 28-year-old singer. They decided to pull from multiple ideas and concepts from films like Coffy, starring Pam Grier, Roger Moore's Bond films and 2015's sci-fi Ex Machina. And for those who think having a robot featured in the film is a little creepy, the pair feels the robot captures the overall vision and theme that they were going for and wanted to portray in the film.
"We've created another world," stated Aiko during the Flaunt interview. "Both me and Sean are super into fantasy-driven movies and so combining stuff like robots and sex, that pretty much sums us up." Sean agreed with her statement adding "robots are sexy."
