Two years after breaking onto the scene with “Classic Man,” Jidenna unleashes his debut album. The project has 14 trcks and features famous tracks like ‘Little bit more’ which is a massive club hit and ‘The Let Out’. It also features collaborations with Wondaland labelmates Janelle Monáe and St. Beauty (“Safari”) and Roman GianArthur.
Jiddena says that it is largely autobiographical adding that “The Chief is a story of manhood. The story of me coming into my manhood after my father passed and the trials and tribulations I had on that journey.”
That story will be told through a diverse body of work. “There’s a lifetime of stories in one album as opposed to some albums you hear today [described like] ‘It’s a vibe,’” he added. “That’s a cool way of saying it’s the same song for 14 tracks. This is not that. I’ve lived in too many places to make the same song back to back.”
