With the support of Africans in diaspora, fans with a refined taste, Janelle Monae’s platform and a fashion sense that still has everyone talking, Jidenna‘s introduction was as smooth as it gets. Taking some time off since his last release in 2017, the multifaceted singer returns with two tracks signature to his Afrofuturistic brand, Sufi Woman and Tribe.
On Sufi Woman, Jidenna builds on an afrobeat and neo-soul soundscape hybrid that gives life to his love-centric narrative doused in black pop culture references.
The latter, Tribe is reminiscent of The Chief and sees Jidenna take a bass-heavy route that flows smoothly with 808s and dense keys that give off psychedelic vibes.
