Up and coming R&B singer Jhene Aiko is getting lots of buzz for her “Sail Out” and “Soul Out” albums, so it’s no surprise she was invited to perform at this year’s Hot 97 Summer Jam.

However, like other acts who came out on the stage last night, Jhene was criticized on social media because some felt her performance left a lot to be desired.

No stranger to getting people together on Twitter, Jhene checked her critics in a couple of tweets after her mentions blew up (read tweets from bottom to top):

  1. I like Jhene but she is not a strong performer and she needs to work on that. But people on twitter make you want to go off on them I hope she learns to ignore this and just concentrate on getting better as an artist.

  2. I haven’t seen the performance. I can’t really get into her music. I prefer her on features…but not whole songs.

  3. She’s nto a strong performer and her performance wasn’t that great. But I don’t believe she deserved to be dragged on twitter for it. Either way, she shouldn’t give trolls that much attention. That’s what they want.
