The freestyle highlights that post-breakup mood when everything reminds you of moments and memories with an ex and sends you through a wave of emotions. She talks about hating, loving, going crazy and trying to remain calm through that first stage of the breakup.

Jhené also released a single shot music video for “Triggered (freestyle)” on her website. The video is shot in a very serene location, somewhere one might go to think and clear their head. Jhené performs the song looking out into the horizon as you visibly see her go through different waves of emotions herself.

Being a poet as well as a musician, Jhené understood the importance of lyrics and having your audience really understand your message, so she also laid out the lyrics to the freestyle on her website as well.

“Triggered (freestyle)” is available on all streaming platforms.
