It looks like Big Sean was not the target of the self-described "bitter" songwriter.

(AllHipHop News) Jhené Aiko had many people on the internet talking yesterday. She dropped the new song "Triggered (Freestyle)" and some listeners assumed it was a diss song directed at Aiko's ex-boyfriend Big Sean.

The 31-year-old Def Jam recording artist hopped on Twitter to let the world know she did not intend for the record to be viewed as a put-down for her former beau. Jhené tweeted:

"triggered" was a moment. a moment that for me has passed. it is new to you because ur just now hearing it, but for me... it's something i moved on from the moment i expressed it. triggered is NOT a diss song. it is a moment of talking sh*t out of frustration and passion. it's was a moment of exaggerated expression when I was feeling lost and weak. no one is to be blamed or bashed for how I was feeling in that moment. I am in control of my feelings. this is how I paint. this is me yelling and throwing paint at a canvas... then going out into the world feeling less tension, more open... more loving. going to bed feeling less stressed, more optimistic.
