Jidenna keeps the new music coming.
After dropping “Tribe” and “Sufi Woman” last month, the Grammy-nominated rapper delivers another pair of tracks off his sophomore album 85 to Africa.
He brings it back on “Sou Sou” (“The world is fucked up, so we fuck our way through”) and teams up with Mr. Eazi on “Zodi.” Over a sample of Busta Rhymes’ “Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Could See,” Jidenna provides the hypnotic flow, while Mr. Eazi adds some Afrobeat flavor.
85 to Africa, the follow-up to Jidenna’s 2017 debut The Chief, arrives Aug. 23. He will hit the road on a North American tour in support of the album, starting Oct. 2 in Sacramento.
