All hail the Chief. Over two years since his debut album, Jidenna returns with a pair of new singles, “Tribe” and “Sufi Woman.”
Over trap drums, the Chief reps his “Tribe.” “Put your pride in the trash bin / Too much ego in the captions / Don’t get swept up like a Tesla / You ain’t really need the gassin’,” he raps.
On the Afrobeats-inspired “Sufi Woman,” Jidenna sings about a woman who seduces him with her mystical charm. “You’re a lion, but you walk around so unassuming,” he sings.
The songs serve as the first offerings from Jidenna’s sophomore album, 85 to Africa, which arrives on Aug. 23. The album was inspired by his journey across the Atlantic Ocean after unexpectedly being evicted from his rental home. Watch the trailer below.
