It's been nearly two full years since Janine and the Mixtape has released new music, but that silence ends today. The talented songstress has returned with a new EP entitled XX, and it's one impressive return-to-form. As FADER points out, rappers such as Pusha T and Tunji Ige have remixed her songs in recent months, making this a great time for her to appear back in the public arena. Plus, with all the current attention being paid to unique, deserving female vocalists, her timing her should be pretty beneficial to the next move in her career. XX features six new tracks from Janine and the Mixtape, with the singer describing the narrative and subject matter of today's release as such:
"The ins and outs of relationships—some we think of everyday, some we will forget until they pop up on a timeline somewhere. Exes of many things, home, people, and the people who were once home. The transition from hurt, anger, and regret to finding peace. Knowing that some people are meant to be visitors."
