Let's take a much needed break from all the concerning coronavirus coverage to shed some light on a rare positive that comes with getting through this global pandemic: quarantining yourself with the one you love.
On Monday, Big Sean wished his "Queen" Jhené Aiko a Happy Birthday on Instagram with a post that includes a heartfelt message and a series of photos chronicling their romance. Even though the two are currently self-isolating, Sean confesses that "you even make that sound good."
"Always proud but never surprised cause I know how great you are at everything you do," he wrote. "Even tho we gotta be inside n quarantine, you even make that sound good. I Love you from da past life to the next. 32 the Magic year, I'm a lucky ass n*gga."

Jhené's latest album Chilombo finished second on the Billboard 200 in its debut week, selling 152,000 equivalent album units. It was her highest charting project to date. Chilombo features the song "Triggered (Freestyle)," which the singer admitted in an interview with Essence was influenced by her breakup with Sean, but wasn't entirely about him.
"He was just like, 'Wow,' I'm not your friend,'" Aiko said of Sean's initial response to the track. "I was like, 'Well, I was feeling that in the moment. This is just a song. This is not 100 percent about you.'" It's all clearly water under the bridge now because the couple appear to be stronger than ever before, and as we will all find out, if you can make it through weeks of quarantine together, you can probably make it through anything.
