Jhené Aiko and singer-songwriter August 08 have teamed up for the new single “Water Sign,” which dropped Friday as part of August’s six-song EP Towards the Moon.

August can be most notably traced to DJ Khaled‘s hit “I’m the One,” where he’s credited as a co-writer.

According to Variety, the LA-based artist recently signed with Allel Sound, Aiko’s joint label with Def Jam Records.

“August is an incredible writer, singer and artist whose music speaks to me on so many levels,” Aiko said, per Variety. “As a fellow Los Angeles native, I am so proud of him. August’s talent, love for songwriting and hands on approach with his art is something I can relate to and have a great amount of respect for. It was a natural evolution of our friendship and musical collaboration to have him become the first artist signed to Allel Sound. I couldn’t be more excited to work with August.”

Towards the Moon is the second installment of August’s two-part debut album titled Seasick. The South LA native released Towards the Sun via Def Jam in April.
