Surprise! Just nine months after dropping his debut album, The Chief, Jidenna comes right back with Boomerang.
The surprise project features six new songs, including appearances by Quavo, Wale, Tiwa Savage, Malek Berry, Sarkodie, and Dot Cromwell. Plus, Diplo produces the title track, which also serves as the first single. A colorful dance-centric video is out now.
“Decibels” kicks off the EP with a flavorful bounce following a voicemail message from a disgruntled girlfriend. “Decibels,” he raps. “Smoke loud, move loud, too proud / They tell her pipe it down, but she make decibels.”
Meanwhile, “Out of Body” closes out the project, with guest appearances from Wale and Cromwell. “I’m with Jidenna,” raps Folarin. “So, I got a suit!”
Much like The Chief, Boomerang flaunts Jidenna’s versatility, singing and rhyming throughout. It also has other connections to his debut, including the remixes to “Bambi” (featuring Berry, Quavo, and Sarkodie) and “Little Bit More” (featuring Burna Boy).
“Bambi Too” is the newest collaboration between Quavo and Jidenna, who previously partnered on a remix to “The Let Out,” which didn’t make it onto The Chief.
