Early Friday morning (Feb. 28), Jhene Aiko released her new single “Happiness Over Everything (H.O.E.)” featuring Miguel and Future, along with the accompanying visual.

However, the song isn’t actually new. Aiko originally released the track via her 2011 mixtape Sailing Souls, but it featured Miguel and Gucci Mane. The newly-released version of the song is re-worked and includes Future in lieu of Gucci Mane.

The visual for “Happiness Over Everything (H.O.E.)” features cameos from Aiko’s family members, including her father, Dr. Chill, her mother, and her sisters, including singer Mila J.

The video takes place at a party that includes a game of Uno, Jenga,  pool, and karaoke. At the party, Aiko mingles with a few men who she’s interested in.

She confidently works the room going from man to man chatting while flame dancers give the party an intimate vibe. Check out “Happiness Over Everything (H.O.E.)” below.
