Jhene Aiko and Childish Gambino Recreate John and Yoko's Bed Peace

(Radio.com) Back in March of 1969, just five days after their marriage, John Lennon and Yoko Ono used their honeymoon to stage the first of two "bed in" events in Amsterdam and later Montreal protesting the Vietnam War.

The couple opened their hotel room to the media for 12-hour stretches, where reporters found them discussing world peace underneath signs that proclaimed "Hair Peace" and "Bed Peace."

For the first single, "Bed Peace," from her forthcoming Sail Out EP, singer Jhenι Aiko has teamed up with rapper Childish Gambino to pay homage to Lennon and Ono's "be in" in the song's official music video, which was released today (Oct. 28). They're both clad in all-white like Lennon and Ono in 1969, in a Los Angeles hotel room underneath signs proclaiming "Make Love" and Aiko's EP title.

"Sail Out basically means to be free," Aiko proclaims during a spoken-word break in the video. "Go with the wind, you know, like a sailboat. I think that's really important when it comes to peace…inner peace especially. You can't help anyone else if you don't have it together for yourself." more on this story
